LaLiga Matchday 14 | Athletic vs Valladolid
Athletic Is Going All Out in Every Game They Play
Athletic has delighted us with the best of their soccer every time it has taken to the field, and everything seems to indicate that these guys are on the right track. Until their seventh matchday, the Lions had already accumulated five victories and one draw in their favor, which allowed them to be comfortably seated in the number three position on the table, only behind Barcelona and Real Madrid.
They are a team that fights until the end, and when they set a goal, they give everything to achieve it. An example of this is their match against Rayo Vallecano, where they were behind after the 5th minute when their rival shot an early goal. Shortly after, Iñaki Williams scored at minute 14, Oihan Sancetles took the lead with a goal at minute 28, and then Nico Williams did the same at minute 33. And then, when a goal by the tiger Radamel Falcao threatened to close the gap, the Rojiblancos closed their defense and managed to hold on, taking the victory home.
Athletic vs Valladolid is another opportunity to prove the strength and determination that has characterized them this season.
Valladolid Is Driving Down a Road Full of Obstacles
This season, the Albivioletas have experienced nothing but a succession of upsets and disappointments. Their first games ended in defeat, then a draw, followed by another defeat. And when they finally sealed their first victory, it was overshadowed by two consecutive defeats. These defeats were very hard for the club until a hard-fought victory allowed the club to breathe after having walked the tightrope of relegation.
In this life-saving game, they started winning with a penalty goal by Sergio León at minute 20. Then, at minute 29, Borja Mallorar scored for Getafe, tying the match. After this, Damián Suárez scored another goal for the Blues at minute 31, but at minute 37, Sergio León equalized. Then, at minute 48 came the goal that would seal the match with a victory for the Pucelanos.
When they take the field in Athletic vs Valladolid, they must show the grit that was seen in the match against Getafe, where they did not let the victory slip away from them.
