CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2014 QUALIFIER

The first half already gave us signs of the intentions of Athletic Club with numerous chances of goal that were continuously being failed. The Italians shocked early in the second half when Hamski scored in the 47th min. However, for some unknown reason Napoli slowly deteriorated with some serious defensive mistakes & of course, great Bilbao Football.

The equalizer came in the 61st min when Aduriz slipped away from his marker in a corner & found space to score. The second was another Aduriz goal in the 69th min when the Napoli goalkeeper came out to attempt to clear a long Bilbao defensive clearance & messed up badly. The third came in the 74th min when Ubai Lopez scored after another Napoli defensive mix up. Surprising to watch Napoli in defence, especially being an Italian Club, the trip back home will be hard.

Special mention to Bilbao midfielder Iturraspe who was the driver & the main player that put Bilbao on their winning ways. Spanish Football Team selector Del Bosque was present tonight watching the game & the Bilbao midfielder certainly put in his candidacy for a call-up.


Congratulations to Athletic Club Bilbao!
