To be played @ Anoeta on Friday...

Valverde recovers San José and Aduriz but will probably miss Ekiza and Iraizoz. Seems like Gorka played in Valladolid without being fully recovered and... Also, Athletic has managed to avoid Laporte going with France u-20 and therefore missing this game.

Probable XI

Iago Herrerin

Andoni Iraola - Carlos Gurpegi - Aymeric Laporte - Mikel Balenziaga

Beñat Etxebarria - Ander Iturraspe

Markel Susaeta - Ander Herrera - Iker Muniain

Aritz Aduriz

Great squad for the game with very good subs! Even with great players like San José, Ekiza and Rico missing.

When was the last time we did not suffer from two injuries at the back? :excited:

79th minute: Athletic blows a huge chance. Ibai should've had an empty net on the counterattack but tried to change direction and allowed enough time for the defense to recover. Still 1-0 Athletic.

82nd minute: Athletic again with the counterattack as Osasuna sent all their men to the box. Aduriz on the left wing with a smooth low through ball and De Marcos outraced the defense to finish coolly.

2-0 Athletic! Top of the table if we can hang on!!!!!!!!

That was a bloody awful performance but since we bought their only goal threat we held on after being completely overrun in the second half.

Zero communication between keeper and the back line who seemed like they had never played together before...no alignment or congruity in their collective play and little sign of understanding re the midfield.

Still,another 3 points in a game that was as much a home game for them as us if we sre being geographically honest...I fear for Pamplona if their coach is as volatile off the pitch as on.
