Hot Athletic, melted Atletico and advanced to the final of the Copa del Rey!


Position for him 40th Copa del Rey final in its history – where it will claim the 25th relevant trophy and first after 40 years – closed the Athletic Bilpmao. And indeed, in a deafening way: Dissolving 3-0 her Atletico MADRID in the hot “San Mames”!

Thus, Ernesto Valverde’s team, leaving no room for doubt, she doubled her wins then the “double” (0-1) in the first match of “Wanda Metropolitano” and qualified for the big meeting in “Cartouche” of Seville. Where on April 6 will strike with the terrible Majorcawhich two days ago… thrashed Real Sociedad (thereby also preventing a… Basque civil war).

Before the cross of the game – in which it was scored attendance record for Athletic with 52,061 people – the friends of the home team created an impressive atmosphere on the one hand and on the other sad. And this because a portion of their fans attacked those of the “Rojiblancos”, with the president of Madrid, Enrique Serethosto state that a friend of Atlético’s was taken to hospital in serious condition.

As far as the competitive part is concerned now, the visitors were the ones who had the first moments, like that of Lino in the 6th minute. Nevertheless, it was Bilbao who scored and even twice before the end of the first half. Both strikes were… family affair. At 13′, therefore, o Nico Williams cross from the left, for o Iniaki Williams and send the ball into the net with a terrific volley. While, in 42′ the two brothers – and “wings” of Athletic’s attack – switched roles, with the first (and younger by eight years) making it 2-0.

The second half started with a delay due to a medical incident in the stands and while fainting episode had taken place and in the first part. In particular, the medical staff provided first aid to a fan who he drowned (as the hosts reported in their post) and who after several minutes left on a stretcher. The whole stadium applauded him, with the wish that he is in good health and that he does not have anything serious, while the latest news about his condition is expected in the next few hours.

Since the match restarted, Atlético took the initiative, having in front of them a… Calvary. Eventually, he became even bigger at 61′When the Gurutheta made it 3-0 from close range. A score that was also the final, as on the one hand there was no longer much time, on the other hand in the opportunities created by Atlético saw Arithabalaga to put a “stop” on him.
