Athletic held by Hertha

Athletic Bilbao started their Europa League group stage campaign with a scoreless draw away at Hertha Berlin.

Having progressed past Dinamo Bucharest and Panathinaikos in the playoff qualifiers for the group stage, this was the Basque club’s fifth match of what can be a gruelling tournament.

The hosts edged the possession and shooting statistics but Jose Angel Ziganda’s set up to earn a point and ultimately will be happy with a scoreless draw in a tough encounter.

In the group’s other encounter, Swedish side Oestersunds FK triumphed 2-0 away at Ukrainian outfit Zorya.
