In the fifth round of LaLiga Deportivo Alaves won 1:0 at home against Athletic Bilbao.
The first half of the meeting was not impressive. None of the teams offered a risky chance to score a goal and did not make a single accurate shot per goal. Thus, until the break, the frameless tie continued. The hosts went to strike after the change of sides.
At 50 minutes, Lucas Perez had a great chance to score. But the Alaves player couldn’t finish the action. Six minutes later, the Spaniard again stood face to face with his rival goalie, but Unai Simon protected his shot.
At 74 minutes, his exact centering of the free throw was used by his defender-Rodrigo Ely. A few moments later, the hosts were able to increase the ranking. The team action was done with Joselu’s headshot. But Simon has once again successfully covered himself.
But Alaves held the lead, winning the first game of the season. This is also the third loss at this year’s Athletic Event.
The two teams did not launch the 2020/21 season very successfully. They’re at the bottom of the table so far. However, the victory of Alaves may signal their return to form. Pablo Machin is the first victory in the new club for the team trainer.
