Raúl García Suspended For Sevilla Match

Raúl García will miss Athletic’s match against Sevilla (AC)

Sunday’s match against Real Madrid didn’t go as planned. Athletic knew that getting a positive result would be a difficult challenge, but the Lions put in an impressive performance and deserved to take something away from the game. Ultimately, VAR would give Real Madrid a penalty in the second half which proved to be the winner.

Coming away with nothing was a disappointment, but so was Raúl García’s yellow card in the first half. The midfielder jumped while trying to avoid a clearance and fell into Marcelo. García was immediately booked for the play and will miss the next game due to suspension.

Athletic will host Sevilla on Thursday night at San Mamés in what will be a must-win game for the Basques. Without Raúl García it’s likely that Iñaki Williams will be moved up top, or Asier Villalibre could get the start as a result of his excellent performances as of late.
