Athletic Club 1-0 Sevilla: Hosts end losing streak

Bilbao ended their losing streak with Mikel Vestga goal seeing off Sevilla 1-0 at the San Mames.

The hosts played out a tight opening quarter. Los Leones had claims of handball when a man marked Adruiz got his toe to a cross which the keeper deflected onto his defender’s hand.

Sevilla went on to create the best two chances of the game. The first was a one on one which Kepa saved miraclously. The second also showcased the youngster potential, a Sevilla attacker cutting into the box and firing at the near post at close range, Kepa getting down quickly to save.

The opening goal was a scrappy piece of brillance at the end of the first half, Vestga getting his foot to a probing cross and chipping the out rushing keeper.

Bilbao could of had a second midway through the second half, the post dening Vestga a brace. A number of half chances followed in a second half that the home side probably edged through as the better side. Athletic Bilbao have handed Berizzo’s Sevilla just their second loss of the season.
