Euskaraz irakurri: Athleticek berdinketa baino ez du lortu departure erdia 10 jokalarirekin jokatu duen Almeriaren aurka
Athletic drew 0-0 against Almería in the match that closed the 24th day of LaLiga EA Sports. The rojiblancos have barely created any chances and have struggled against a team, Almería, bottom of the standings and without victories so far in the championship, who have played with one less player since the 53rd minute.
The red and whites have come out determined on the attack and already in the 3rd minute Vesga gave the first warning with a long shot that goalkeeper Maximiano caught well. But despite that good start Valverde’s team has been diluting as the minutes progressed and it was Almería, who have not yet won a game so far this season, who have decisively sought the goal defended by Unai Simón.
With the Andalusians playing very comfortably and Ramazani creating more than one headache, Athletic had a hard time giving rhythm to the game and creating dangerous chances. He The lions’ first shot between the three sticks came in the 35th minute, with a weak shot from Villalibre, after a good pass from Iñaki Williams, which the Almería goalkeeper caught well.
In the 40th minute the great chance came for the people of Bilbao in a corner kick that Paredes headed the ball and Maximiano responded spectacularly. In the 45th minute, Gaizka Garitano’s team had it, in this case, with a very centered header from Lozano, which Unai Simón caught well.
After the break things haven’t improved. Almería was on the verge of scoring in the 51st minute in the face of red-and-white passivity. In ’53, Garitano’s men were left with 10 players per double yellow to Ramazani. But the people of Bilbao have not been able to take advantage of that numerical superiority and have continued playing without clarity of ideas and without rhythm.
Raúl’s chance and final scare
With Desperate Valverde In the band, the lions have followed incapable of creating real danger until Raúl García’s header in the 86th minute that hit the post. It was one of the very little that Athletic did in attack throughout the second half, despite their numerical superiority.
In ’89, it was the Almeria the one who has had a last very clear occasion to score and take the victory, but Marezi, inexplicably, sent the ball over Unai Simón’s frame. In the end, points were distributed in a bad game against the bottom team.
