Athletic entered the Champions League qualifying zone

In this game, the Williams brothers, Iñaki and Nico, have continued against Rayo Vallecano in San Mamés with the party that they live in the family after their recent international calls with Ghana and Spain collaborating with the victory of Athletic, which thus reaches positions of Champions League.

The older brother, Iñaki, tied Oscar Trejo's initial goal after a gallop that put the redheads ahead and the little one, Nico, in another similar play, closed the 3-1 with which the first half ended .

The Colombian striker came on in the second half and closed the gap for Rayo Vallecano. 

Between both goals, Oiahn Sancet had made it 2-1 and already in the final part of the clash, after After Iker Muniain pardoned the 4-1 score twice, Falcao gave emotion at the end of the game by scoring the 3-2 as soon as he stepped onto the pitch.

All this within the great game that was predicted in the duel between the teacher, Ernesto Valverde, and the outstanding student, Andoni Iraola, who fulfilled the expectations of a great match at La Catedral. It was from start to finish.

Rayo got off to a better start, as by minute 3 they had already tried to tickle Unai Simón with a shot from Isi Palazón that the international goalkeeper had to clear for a corner.

It would not be the last time that Isi threatened Simón with a long shot, since with two others he was about to score. But one crashed into the crossbar, almost on the crossbar, and the second just went high.

But that was later, in the heat of madness that was the first half, in which four valid goals were scored and three more canceled for offside. The last of the three, by Iñaki Williams, very tight.

But, returning to the chronological order of things, Rayo sealed their best start with 0-1. Camello stole the wallet from Íñigo Martínez who was appearing for the first time in San Mamés after his unsuccessful transfer to Barcelona, ​​and gave it to Trejo so that the red-and-red captain opened the scoring in minute 4.

He reacted quickly Athletic, which by minute 8 had already tied. But in a play with Íñigo clearly offside at the start of the play.

Athletic did not give up, the Williams warmed up their engines and the clash already ran over the visitors. That they saw, first, how the greatest of the saga equalized after making a perfect control oriented to a good pass from Dani García behind the defense. Good final definition of Iñaki, something unusual.

A heads-up match after 1 -1

With 1-1 the clash became a give and take from which Athletic came out favored. That completed the comeback in a triangulation between Muniain, Berenguer and Sancet that the young midfielder finished off alone and at pleasure at the penalty spot. Navarre quality.

But not that the somersault at halftime stopped there because, in another ball behind the defense, Yeray found the run of Nico and the youngest of the Williams a precise mincemeat to make it 3-1 beating Dimitrievski Before, a possible 1-2 had fallen by the wayside, with a goal by Camello in an also clear offside; and then 4-1, from Iñaki to a pass from Sancet, invalidated by a much tighter offside.

The storm ceased, although it was not very calm. Because as soon as the second half began, Fran García tried to make it 3-2 with a cross shot and Athletic licked it 4-1 on two occasions that Dimitrievski aborted. The first, a shot by Williams to a center from a set piece by Muniain and the second a shot by the Atletico captain himself, at will on the penalty spot, which was cleared by the Macedonian goalkeeper. Good move started by Nico and continued, as in 2-1, by Berenguer.

Muniain had it again for the 4-1 but the Navarrese, who was about to be substituted, lacked steam to find a gap between the three posts after a good pass from Williams. The fourth local goal did not finish and the second visitor did, who left things much more even for the final stretch of the game. In which Ander Herrera had entered with two immediate actions, one defensive and one offensive.

Another old acquaintance of Athletic and La Catedral, Radamel Falcao, was the one who adjusted again in the match, going ahead in a cross from Fran García to Iñigo Martínez who did not have a good return to San Mamés.
