Winning at Atlético de Madrid always supposes a boost of morale for many reasons. You show that you can compete against the leader despite the losses, you take half a league from a club that has become a black beast since the arrival of Simeone, who is not very fond of Bilbao, and helps to re-engage fans who had drifted away from the team after the disappointing Cup finals.
Hopefully we can return to San Mamés soon, as the CSD points out, to gradually recover normality. Today, for the moment, Athletic is playing again in their stadium. The lions are visited by a Valladolid in the relegation zone.
