Despite conceding a lion’s share of the possession in the first half (76 percent), it was Athletic who opened the affair 13 minutes in. A poor decision from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen—coming off his line to clear the ball—resulted in an early candidate for goal of the week. From 45 yards out, Mikel San Jose gifted the hosts a 1-0 lead.
More of the same followed in the second half. A 15-minute hat-trick from Aritz Aduriz sealed the improbable 4-0
