Malaga Vs Athletic Bilbao Highlights:A 1-0 victory from Malaga over Athletic Bilbao ensures the hosts they stay in the top 5 spots of La Liga staying close behind Real Madrid.
Athletic Bilbao had 53% of possession with the ball although they could never really make any real goal-scoring chances or dangerous movements into the penalty box of Malaga. With only 1 shot being launched for Bilbao it was an overwhelming difference in comparison to the 6 attempts delivered from their opponents.
Isco and Weligton had some of the 1rst chances on scoring with the Spanish forward whipping a right footed strike just around the box of Bilbao but seconds later being saved by the goalkeeper Raul.
Weligton tried his luck with a 15th minute header but just going above the crossbar. Malaga however did not have to wait very long for them to find the opening goal.
Lucas Piazon was bursting down the left wing until slipping a pass over into the center of the box and Javier Saviola was there to smash it home.
It was the only goal of the entire match that saw Bilbao enjoying more time on the ball but not really doing anything that could cause trouble to neither Malaga’s defenders nor the goalkeeper himself who had a relaxing game.
