Aduriz reignites Athletic campaign

Aritz Aduriz’s strike twenty minutes from time ensured Athletic Bilbao lived to fight another day in the Europa League campaign.

The Basque club could potentially have been eliminated on Thursday night had they failed to beat Swedish side Ostersunds at the San Mames.

Jose Angel Ziganda’s side had only two points before taking on the group leaders but Aduriz grabbed the vital goal after a goalmouth scramble saw Inaki Williams and Raul Garcia efforts blocked.

Central defender Unai Nunez was shown a second yellow card late on for the hosts but they held on to victory, while Hertha Berlin’s win over second-placed Zorya has reignited the group.
