Real Betis Makes History Against Athletic Bilbao

What a day! What a match! What an incredible bit of La Liga history! At the ripe “old” age of 38, the Real Betis team captain, Joaquin, did something no one of that age has ever accomplished. He scored three goals, commonly called a hat trick, against league rival Athletic Bilbao in a game on 8th December that Betis went on to win by a score of 3 to 1.

The Veteran Comes Through

The amazing feat makes Joaquin the oldest competitor to score a hat trick in the long history of La Liga football. It only took two minutes of play for the mid-fielder to get busy racking up the points. With one strike already on the board, the team leader waited just nine more minutes before zapping another ball into the net for his next goal.

Liverpool ran them close last year but Pep Guardiola’s men were too good in the end. After five games, unsurprisingly, it’s a Liverpool-Manchester City one-two at the top of the table but a surprise defeat away at Norwich has left Guardiola’s troops five points behind Jurgen Klopp’s Merseysiders.

If anyone doubted Liverpool’s mental state after such a grueling season in 2018-2019, perhaps leaving them deflated coming into the new year, the Anfield outfit have quickly dispelled those concerns. The terrific goalscoring capabilities of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have shown no signs of waning, leading the north west club to five wins from five.
