|Javi Martinez for Athletic de Bilbao|
It is never an easy task for the visiting team when they play Bilbao. A traditionally tough & physical clash that did not disappoint with ATHLETIC DE BILBAO & SEVILLA FC fighting it out for the three points. There was plenty of yellow cards & physical clashes with Sevilla forward Negredo being taken off in the first half after clashing heads for an aerial ball & Bilbao forward Toquero being also injured.
It was a battle ground in the midfield with very little chances happening as both sides cancelled each other out. However everything occured mid second half when Bilbao got ahead via an own goal from Sevilla player FAZIO in the 66th min & then the sealer via a penalty in the 88th min via IRAOLA.
Final result 2 - 0 for Bilbao in the battle of "San Mames"
