FilGoal | News | Little Williams? No … the great Williams? Yes .. Athletic Bilbao pushes Sevilla out of the title fight


Athletic Bilbao defeated its host Seville with a single goal at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, at the end of the 34th round of the Spanish League.

Inaki Williams scored the only goal of the match in the final moments of the match.

To raise Athletic Bilbao to 45 points in ninth place, and thus ensure that it remains in the Premier League officially and mathematically.

Athletic Bilbao is 6 points away from the qualifying places in European competitions, a difficult task, but it is computationally possible until the moment.

On the other hand, Seville received a painful blow in the struggle for the Spanish League title, with its score frozen at 70 points in fourth place, 6 points behind leaders Atletico Madrid.

And Sevilla is a guest to Real Madrid in the next round of the Spanish League.

Sevillas winning streak has stopped at 5 consecutive matches, while Athletic Bilbao has completed 8 matches without defeat, including 6 draws.

Athletic Bilbao has not beaten Sevilla at the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium in the league since December 2011, and coincidentally, the current Basque Lions coach Marcelino Garcia Toral was the coach of the Andalusian team at the time.

Marcelino was forced to make an early change in the 15th minute after his star, Raul Garcia, was injured, to replace him with the young Uian Sanset.

In the second half, Marcelino called on Nico Williams in the 63rd minute from the bench, and then put his older brother, Inaki Williams, in the 69th minute.

The younger brother had already scored in the 88th minute, but the assistant’s flag was raised, announcing an offside.

Although the goal was canceled, the Williams family was not satisfied, and were determined to take out Athletic Bilbao in victory, so the older brother Inaki took off on a brilliant rebound and finished the attack beautifully in the 90th minute against Seville.

To practically remove Julien Lopetegui’s squad from the title fight that will be confined to the trio of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
