Marcelino García Toral carries less than a month in the bench of the Athletic of Bilbao and the team already has lived a change more than positive regarding his game and the results. In the five parties that have contested from his arrival, add four victories and an alone defeat, in front of the FC Barcelona in the first party of the 'lions' under the orders of the trainer of Asturias.

The Getafe has been the last victim of the rojiblancos, after his victories in front of the Real Madrid and Barça, in the Supercopa of Spain, and in front of the Ibiza in the dieciseisavos of final of the Glass of Rey. The 'azulones' fell in Saint Mamés by five goals to one, after having advanced in the marker through a goal to the 19 seconds of party, after a spectacular centre of the culé Carles Aleñá and head butt of Cucurella to beat to Unai Simón, without options to answer.

The Getafe grew in the field, but the 'effect Marcelino' produced shortly after and the rojiblancos adueñaron of the spherical and therefore, of the clash. A centre from the left of Iker Muniain that Raúl García finished of volley sealed the tie, with a golazo that reaffirms that the one of Navarra has reencontrado with his best version. The club azulón, still very put in the party, had the opportunity to restart the advantage from the eleven metres, but Unai Simón dressed of hero and detained the shot of Jaime Kills.

There it began the way to the 'manita'. The command of the ones of Marcelino was evident, but the electronic finished equalised in the first part, but in the second act the Athletic did of his and Yeray Álvarez, Raúl García, Alex Berenguer and Óscar of Marcos sentenced the goleada in Saint Mamés, a day before visiting to the FC Barcelona on 31 January in the Camp Nou.

It will be the third time that the culés and 'lions' cross this month. To beginnings of the year, the Barça visited Saint Mamés and signed one of his more complete parties of the season, that finished with a marker of 2-3. Later, they saw the faces in the final of the Supercopa of Spain in which the Athletic took advantage of of the errors of the blaugrana to raise the title in The Cartuja. Now, after contesting the eighth of the Glass of Rey, will confront again by LaLiga.

The Barça has to study to Muniain, Williams and Raúl

Although it is true that the 'lions' took advantage of two very clear errors of the defence to force the extention, the Athletic did merits to carry the first trophy of the season. The pressure in the attack and defensive order were the two keys to win him the party, deservedly, to the blaugrana. In this sense, the Barça has a lot that study so that the three points remain in the Camp Nou.

For this, will have to take in account and study each one of the movements of three players of the Athletic that already have showed to be very dangerous: Iker Muniain, Iñaki Williams and Raúl García. The three have been key part of the approach of Marcelino and his influence from the half of the field until the rival area is evident. The last, for example, sum five goals in the last three parties.
