It has not been the night of Eric García, without place to doubts. In the tie of the FC Barcelona in front of the Athletic of Bilbao was one of the distinguished players and not even finished the crash in the field, after having been expelled in the discount to avoid that Nico Williams remained expensive to face with Net Walled. The Catalan, that had received a yellow in the first part, saw the red cardboard and Martínez Munuera commanded it to the street without doubting it.

It was a necessary action, of some way, because the player bilbaíno had in his boots the opportunity to achieve the so much that went to give the victory for the ones of Marcelino. The true is that it was not the only action of the party in which the ex of the Manchester City remained very distinguished. It was a night complicadísima in which it failed in almost everything; it was slower of the usual, imprecise and with grave problem in the labeling.

The last point is something that happened bill for the Barça, because in front had to an Athletic that wanted to do roar to his stadium for the first time from does a time. Iñaki Williams won him the position, one and again, to the central Catalan, very surpassed in his role of leader of the defence after the exit of Gerard Hammered in the first part by physical annoyances. Without place to doubts, today will have nightmare with all the attackers 'rojiblancos'.

Nevertheless, the most important action was the one of the goal of Íñigo Martínez to advance to his. When the clock brushed the 50 minutes of party, a kickoff of corner of the bilbaínos, finished with the balloon in the first stick, where expected attentive Íñigo Martínez, winning him also the position to Eric to connect precise head butt to win without complication some and open the tin in Saint Mamés.

Eric played conditioned

The reality is that Eric García came very conditioned before jumping in field. Minutes before, had received the news that his grandfather had died in this instant, something very difficult to digest. However, the central decided that equally it was prepared to play, but of some way the emotional factor finishes happening bill to all the footballers and he did not go to be the exception.

On the other hand, it would be very unfair to signal to Eric like the 'culprit' of the tie in Saint Mamés when the reality is that the team was too toneless and committed a lot of errors, from beginning to end. To the culés was missing him precision and capacity to place in front in front of the high pressure of the ones of Marcelino, that finished them drowning by more than an hour of party.
