La Liga

Atletico Madrid 1-2 Athletic Bilbao

A pair of late finishes for Yeray Alvarez and Nico Williams inside five minutes ensures a remarkable comeback victory for Athletic Bilbao against Atletico Madrid in the Supercopa de Espana semi-final!

The underdogs will defend their crown after fighting back from Unai Simon’s own goal.

Delight and despair at the King Fahd International Stadium – at full-time, it finishes Atletico Madrid 1-2 Athletic Bilbao.

A shake of the hand from Diego Simeone, and the Argentine turns away, stony-faced. His side was on top and seized an innovative lead, but it always looked like they should have delivered more than they did.

They’ve paid the price for their efforts – they’ll head home empty-handed.

But for Marcelino, it’s a fourth final since he took charge of the club in January last year.

Two Copa del Rey defeats have not hurt his side’s hopes, though – and they will have a shot to add to their trophy cabinet against a rampant Real Madrid shortly. They’ll relish the challenge.

It’s one of the turnarounds of the season! Another corner is sailed in, and the ball crashes off a clutch of players before it falls to the replacement. He lines up a volley and drives home, nailing his strike at the left post. 2-1

So, what’s next for both the club?

Then, Atletico is straight back into the cup competition when they face Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey next week. But for Athletic, Madrid awaits in the Supercopa de Espana Final.
