Athletic Club de Bilbao’s women’s team earned an impressive away win against Valencia in the Liga F on Saturday evening. They bounced back from the previous weekend’s disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Madrid CF to beat Valencia by the same scoreline.
Clara Pinedo opened the scoring for Athletic Club in the 43rd minute with a penalty kick but the home side levelled the scores through Pauleta in the 68th minute. The game looked to be heading towards a draw until substitute Patricia Zugasti struck a winner with just four minutes or regulation time remaining.
The victory takes David Aznar’s team up to seventh place in the Liga F table with twelve points from their first nine matches. Next up they face league leaders Barcelona at home (26th November) and will attempt to become the first team to take any points from the reigning champions this season.
