Athletic had a successful conclusion to their weekend in Germany with an impressive 2-0 win against Borussia Monchengladbach.
Iñaki Williams had sat out the previous day’s draw with Paderborn, so he was fresh for this encounter and he opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the fifteenth minute. His strike partner Iñigo Córdoba doubled the advantage five minutes after half time and there was no coming back for the Germans.
Garitano had switched ‘keepers at the interval and he replaced all ten outfield players in the 67th minute as he continues to assess the fitness of his squad. Next up it’s Numancia on Thursday night.
The starting line up was as follows:
Simón – Capa, Núñez, Nolaskoain, Yuri Berchiche – Dani García, Unai López, Muniain – Córdoba, Ibai, Williams.
Substitutions: Herrerín (46’) for Simón. De Marcos, Vivian, Yeray, Balenziaga, San José, Sancet, Larrazabal, Raúl García, Vicente and Villalibre (67’) for everyone else.
