Defeat at the new San Mamés stadium (3-0)

Málaga Club de Fútbol had a number of players absent for this match at the new San Mamés ground.  Jesús Gámez, Sergio Sánchez, Samuel and Kameni were all out of the line-up through injury, whilst Flávio and Duda were both suspended.  Eliseu occupied the right wing tonight, with Weligton, having overcome injury, accompanying Angeleri in central defence.  Juanmi was back in action tonight in midfield.
 
Athletic Club were quick to score the first goal.  Aduriz headed the ball into the back of the net just three minutes into play to put the home side 1-0 up very early on.  Despite this initial setback, the ‘Malaguistas’ began to feel more at home on the pitch as time went on.  However Bernd Schuster’s men found it incredibly difficult to overcome the rival in midfield and barely made it near Iraizoz’s goal area.  Another chance came for Aduriz to increase Athletic Club’s lead, but he missed the target.
 
Bernd Schuster made some changes to the line-up at the start of the second half, with Iakovenko joining the match in place of Pablo Pérez.  However history repeated itself and Athletic Club scored again at the start of the second half.  Following an assist from Susaeta, Aduriz scored again to put the locals 2-0 up.
 
Málaga CF maintained a strong determination to get on the score board.  Juanmi set up a chance for Iakovenko, but couldn’t get a goal.  A Sergi Darder header towards the target following a precise pass from Amrabat looked promising, but again the Blue and Whites were unlucky.
 
The visitors didn’t give up, but Athletic Club’s victory was sealed as Ander Herrera scored the third goal of the game from outside the area, which was impossible for Willy to save.  The score board showed a 3-0 win for the home team.
