WBY is weak, should never ever start, Berizzo at fault for this. WBY is used to tap-ins and having fun vs. teams like Maribor. Muriel should start in important matches as he’s the only one who can do a lot of damage. Missing sitters goes for both, but Muriel works way harder. He should have started as he didn’t play 1 minute for Colombia, only traveled.
Banega should’ve also started in this very important match, so that we don’t lose foot of top 4. With a loss today, we can start thinking about the EL places. Valencia is in an extremely great form and we all know Atletico won’t get below top 3.
A pity that N’Zonzi is injured, but hopefully not for a long time. Carole looking good there, but Escudero should’ve started. Berizzo underestimated Bilbao and overestimated the bench players. We can’t reach top 4 with B teams. Field the A team players and win the important matches, that’s the sane logic that should be used. Rotation doesn’t mean not playing the first team players ever together, or once a month, that just doesn’t work.
Bilbao wanted the goal way more and they had at least 1 penalty not given (that Lenglet hold of Aduriz was 90% a penalty), though they scored with a lucky flick.
Hoping for at least a draw and hoping not to see WBY ever start an important match again, in his career.
