As part of the 13th round of the Spanish Championship, Athletic met Celta on their field.
The teams watched each other for quite some time, but after Celta managed to open the scoring, the audience saw plenty of goals.
As already mentioned, the visitors scored first. The Celtic legend Iago Aspas scored a goal from a pass from ex-Barcelona footballer Oscar Mingueza.
Even before the break, the Basques leveled thanks to the efforts of Oian Sunset, but if you think that the teams stopped there, then you are mistaken.
In the 41st minute, Jonathan Bamba again put Rafael Benitez's team ahead, and in stoppage time for the first half, Gorka Guruseta tied the score again.
After such an eventful first half, the teams were not going to give a break either to each other or to the fans who decided to watch this match. In the 52nd minute, Guruseta gave Athletic the lead for the first time in this match.
In the 63rd minute, Jorgen Strand Larsen tied the score, but the goal was canceled by the referee. This verdict did not stop the Norwegian and after 3 minutes he scored a completely legitimate goal.
In the 72nd minute, Athletic was given a penalty, which Iago Aspas could not convert and it seemed that that was all, but Ernesto Valverde’s men had other plans. With just a few minutes left in the match, Alex Berenguer snatched victory for Athletic in this absolutely crazy match.
After 13 rounds played, the teams are in 5th and 18th place, respectively.
