Friday dance

San Mamés opens on Friday for LaLiga. The Fridays are the new Sundays in Bilbao for those who want to follow Athletic. There is no better football client out of date for Athletic. The lions uncorked in the tournament on Monday and now, from the duel with Cádiz, they will link three consecutive matches on Friday. All Athletic matches in November will be on Friday. Marcelino’s men have been chosen by LaLiga to set a decoy for the championship. Either that or they are part of a study program on alteration of training sessions, planning of weeks or even in a statistic on the influx of the public to the stadiums. Who knows.

The fact is that tonight they cross an Athletic that dreams of Europe in front of a Cádiz that looks to the classification with the need to add to escape from dangerous positions. It is not a bad proposal for the 200 game since the new San Mamés opened its doors. The lions present remarkable success cardall since they lost to Rayo, in what has been their only defeat of the season: they have beaten Villarreal and Alavés at San Mamés and have drawn as a visitor against Valencia, Espanyol and Real Sociedad.

Those of Marcelino, with trouble making number on the center line, they are behind their third consecutive victory at home. Facing a Cádiz that has taken more points away from home (5) than at home (4) and that a year ago won at San Mamés in an epic match because it finished with 9 players. That game began to complicate Garitano’s future.


The Cádiz blew up San Mamés with excellent defensive capacity, which is not now sealed from the team. Only in corner kicks have they received five goals. “When we don’t fit in, we take the games forward. If we have to go towing it costs us a lotIt is not something that changes overnight, “said Álvaro.
