Athletic wins the Supercup by defeating FC Barcelona

Athletic Club has managed to restore its laurels in a great Spanish Super Cup that it conquered brilliantly this Sunday on the grass of the Seville stadium of La Cartuja. A goal by Iñaki Williams to FC Barcelona in extra time gives the Biscayan team its third victory

Marcelino García Toral’s team kept their faith against FC Barcelona, who took the lead twice, but finally finished runner-up thanks to a late goal and another one in the first minutes of extra time by the lions.

The azulgrana team has suffered at the beginning by the insistent Basque pressure, but the internments by the left side of Jordi Alba served to take danger to the rival goal. In one of them and after it rejects, Griezmann advanced to the Barça to five of the rest and only a minute before De Marcos equalized the things taking advantage of a good service of Iñaki Williams.

After the restart, the tonic was maintained until the final stretch when another assistance from the left wing meant another goal by Griezmann, which was not definitive due to Villalibre’s shot in extremis after a lateral foul.

Messi was expelled at the end of the match

The final was going to extra time, where Iñaki Williams uncovered the jar of essences with a goal by the team after three minutes, well managed by the Marcelino Garcia Toral against FC Barcelona who suffered at the end of the first red card in the career of Leo Messi.
