Disappointing for Real Madrid fans as the play tonight was shocking & worrying looking into the future.
ATHLETIC DE BILBAO lost 1-3 under the rain against FC BARCELONA who pulled away in the 2ºhalf of the match. The Bilbao stadium with its home team is always a difficult affair & things were equal until Bilbao defender Amorebeita received a red card for a dangerous tackle on Iniesta.
With 10 men Bilbao was at a sever disadvantage as Barça dominated proceedings. The goals finally came in the 59th min with a great goal by KEITA & later a second via XAVI in the 73rd min. Then in a "stupid" tussle David Villa was sent off in the 86th min after mixing it up with a Bilbao defender. This equaled the numbers & Bilbao counter-attacked to score their only goal in the 89th min with GABILONDO. However, Barça meidfielder BUSQUETS shut the door of any hopes of a draw when he scored Barça´s third in the 92nd min. Tweet
