Ander Capa “We Got Back Into The Game Against A Strong Team”
Qualifying for Europe became even more difficult for Athletic following Wednesday’s 2-2 draw against Eibar. The Lions took an early lead through a Raúl García penalty, but needed a late equalizer from Asier Villalibre to salvage a point. Although the final result was fair, Athletic needed more from their trip to Ipurua.
“After we went down 2-1 we reacted instantly,” Ander Capa told Athletic TV after the game. “We went for a draw and we got back into the game against a strong team and on a very difficult field. It was a difficult game. Now to recover and on Saturday go for all three points at home against Betis.”
For now Athletic are still five point off of Europe but with only nine games remaining time is running out. The Zurigorri will welcome Real Betis to San Mamés on Saturday needing a win to stay in the race for the top seven.
