Athletic Bilbao’s poor run of form this season continued as they were shocked by BATE in the Champions League on Tuesday, losing 2-1.BATE vs Athletic Bilbao highlights.
Full time in Belarus. BATE record their first win in this season’s Champions League and their first every victory over Spanish opposition as they overcome Athletic Bilbao 2-1 in Group H. The hosts went two goals up in the first half through Polyakov and Karnitski, but an Aduriz goal for the visitors just before the break promised a fightback. In the end no goals were scored in the second period and the Belarusian champions held out for the vital win. Athletic not looking good in the group now! I’m Martin Macdonald, thanks for joining us, see you next time!
45′Goal Aritz Aduriz Zubeldia
45′GOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL FOR ATHLETIC!! A RAY OF HOPE FOR THE VISITORS!! Muniain takes the ball down with an impeccable touch 30 yards out and threads a pass in to Aduriz, who takes a touch past the defender before lashing a right-footed strike across the keeper into the bottom corner! Two-one! GAME ON!
41′Goal Aleksandr Karnitskiy
GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLL FOR BATE! THE BELARUSIAN SIDE DOUBLE THEIR LEAD, AND IN FORTUITOUS FASHION! Signevich gets in behind the Athletic defence before laying a pass inside to Karnitski, who hits a speculative shot at goal. The strike deflects horribly off the foot of Iraola before nestling in the corner! Iraizoz was completely wrong-footed!
19′Goal Denis Polyakov
GOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL FOR BATE BORISOV!!! THE HOSTS OPEN THE SCORING!!Volodko whips a corner kick into the box and the ball is flicked on at the near post by Signevich! Polyakov is standing totally unmarked at the back post to blast home! One-nil!
