Aduriz scores 5 goals in a Europa League match

Like wine, getting better with age.

It sounds a cliché but just the adjectives used to describe the capacity goal of Aduriz, who has scored many more goals since he turned 30 years old than before.

The fact that three of the five achieved before the Genk were from the penalty spot you can’t subtract one iota of merit to the outstanding work of Aduriz. The margin of the perfect execution of the three releases since the eleven metres, the striker opened the scoring to be in the place where it should be a battering ram and his fourth was heading to a perfect clear with a great pass in depth of Yeray.

The Genk caused a good impression and perhaps he was hurt in San Mames, but two of the three penalties that he drew in against do not support discussion. The victory allows the Athletic to continue to live in the Europe League even though the team of Valverde should improve because you may not always be able to live exclusively from Aduriz. Anyhow, he has been again rewarded by being called to take part in the next national team’s squad.
