Athletic de Bilbao: Berenguer and the Rainbow

“See the goal as the Rainbow.” With these words he perfectly defined Marcelino the state of grace through which it passes Alex
Berenguer. The Navarrese scored the winning goal against Granada on Sunday in minute 91, when he had only been on the San Mamés pitch for seven minutes. He had been one of the players chosen by the Asturian coach to enter the rotations and stay on the bench with most of the starters, but it was to go out on the field and solve the game with a left-handed shot that slipped into the goal defended by Rui
Silva. It was his eighth goal this season, seven in the League and one in the Cup, all of them with the added bonus of scoring points or being decisive, such as that of the Ciutat de València last Thursday, when he scored in extra time the target that gave the pass to the final of the KO tournament on April 17 in La Cartuja.

The former Torino player began his love affair with the goal on matchday six, scoring 1-0 against Levante in Bilbao (2-0). He scored his second goal of the course in the win against Betis (4-0) and with the Asturian as coach he has seen the door with Getafe, Cádiz on two occasions, Villarreal and Sunday. All of them have added to win or tie the game. “I had just entered, I was able to help the team with a goal to add three little points at home that were escaping us lately. We were drawing a lot. Now we have to continue with this dynamic, “said the versatile footballer after defeating the Nasrid in a victory that brings Athletic closer to the fight for European positions, something that seemed quite complicated for a few dates.
