The Real Madrid has finished the season with a summary of what has been his walk in LaLiga: an irregular team that has gone back to characterise for committing too many defensive errors and that, in this opportunity, has cost him the second square of the classification. It was an important afternoon for the madridistas, by all the farewells (especially the one of Benzema), Thibaut Courtois was the only that took the crash seriously in front of an Athletic that benefited of the 'relajos' of the madridistas. The '9' French finish empatando the marker before his last ovation in Santiago Bernabéu.

The White House was not at all comfortable, and this that Carlo Ancelotti did not leave at all at random in the last clash of the season, against an Athletic that played the possibility to play in Europe. In spite of having a XI 'titularísimo', the Madrid showed very uncomfortable in the first compasses of a meeting in which the Basques presionaron very high and planted in the area of Thibaut Courtois, until the point that to the 9' had a penalti in favour.

Without tarpaulin of Madrid and Athletic in the first 45'

Some hands, very questionable, of Toni Kroos in the area left to the ones of Valverde with the opportunity to open the marker, but the guardameta Belgian detained the shot of Vesga after reading his intentions. It was the first intervention of a Courtois that, beside Unai Simón, eregía like the protagonist of the party with several key interventions so that the marker followed without goals. The Real Madrid knew to answer to the requirement, with Vinicius and Rodrygo very enchufados by the bands and the constant research of Benzema.

It was an afternoon for the goalkeepers, if it is necessary resumirlo. They lived an internal competition to improve what did the another and in the first 45' left several important, like the stop to 'Vini' after a shot to the short stick from the frontal or the hand saviour in the hand manually against Rodrygo. In the side of the '1' madridista, a shot of Yuri from the balcony of the area diverted it and went back to appear in two times for blocar a centre of Nico Williams from the corner that had escaped him .

Benzema Sacks with goal

In the resumption was the Athletic the one who went out to look for the goal and, in front of the desaciertos defensive that they were so common in this season, the ones of Valverde achieved to advance in the marker. Of Marcos had stolen the balloon to Ceballos in rival field and gave the pass backwards to Sancet so that it finished in front of a Courtois that in first instance repelled the danger, but the Lynx hunted the refuse and finish commanding the balloon to the deepest of the network. Courtois Could not do all the miracles of the afternoon.

The ones of Valverde believed the superiority and looked for the second with several important approaches, but a penalti by fault to Militao inside the area finish with the last goal of Karim Benzema in his stage like player of the Real Madrid: it launched to the half to deceive to Unai Simón and put brooch of gold to a history of fourteen years like madridista.
