SPANISH FOOTBALL - ROUND 25 FRIDAY RESULT | AT.BILBAO 1 - REAL SOCIEDAD 3

Round 25 of the Spanish League kicked -off with the habitual Friday Night match. A special game as it was the anticipated & big "Basque Region" derby between Athletic Club Bilbao & Real Sociedad ( city of San Sebastian ). This "derby" is always special & even more when played at Bilbao in the "Cathedral of Spanish Football" the "San Mames Stadium". The followers of both sides get on well & celebrate jointly in the streets before the match, but both Clubs & their fans are people with pride & the loser feels the pinch. Both teams wish to avoid a loss.

The end result was a 1 - 3 victory to Real Sociedad, a very felt loss for Bilbao on their "sacred" turf & with a convincing scoreline. What hurts more the losers is that this is the last derby in this ground before moving next season to the new Stadium  The last anticipated Bilbao hurray on their century long home ground turned sour.

But there is a reason for the Real Sociedad victory, they are simple better this season & the in Euro positions on the Spanish League ladder while Bilbao is having a very poor & inconsistent season full of internal problems on & off the field.

Bilbao got ahead first in the 19 th min with Ibai, but their Football glory & moment would soon end when Real Sociedad equalized via Griezmann in the 33 rd min. From here onwards the visitors took over & went ahead thanks to Aguirretxe in the 66th min & Mexican Carlos Vela got the third in the 76th min.

What made it even more sweet for Real Sociedad is that they have not won in "San Mames" for the last 12 years, & tonight they did in the night of derby farewells from the mythical home ground of Bilbao. Party poopers indeed.
