La Liga Football News – Athletic Bilbao Beat Osasuna Confidently
Athletic Bilbao midfielder Sancet alone scoring, in fact, netting three times, carried the guests to a 3-1 victory at Osasuna.
His treble came after he scored his first goal of the season, bringing his net goal scoring to 4 goals. That first 2021-22 campaign goal from Sancet was also recent – when Real Madrid beat them 2-1 before the winter break.
In this match too, it was the locals at Osasuna who opened the scoring early in the game. They did so through Kike Garcia scoring an opener in the 10th minute. But this early lead for the hosts was before Oihan Sancet woke up.
The Pamplona native responded to Osasuna’s thereat by scoring a hat-trick, at the 16th, 25th, and 68th minute respectively. He thereby gave his team a big victory in this game.
Athletic Bilbao then won a penalty hearing, which could have been heavier for Osasuna. But referees denied Inaki Williams his goal late into the game, in the 83rd minute, for an offside position.
