Spanish Super Cup: Bilbao Beat Real Madrid 2-1 To Play Barca In Final

Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night, defeated Real Madrid 2-1 in the second semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup, where they will now face Barcelona in the finals of the competition.

The final will take place on Sunday in Seville.

The goals on the night, were scored by Raul Garcia for Athletico Bilbao and Karim Benzema for Real Madrid. Raul Garcia netted a brace while Karim Benzema had to settle for a late consolation goal which was too little too late for Real to advance to the Spanish Super Cup final.

Athletic will meet Barca after the Catalans beat Real Sociedad in a penalty shootout on Wednesday.

Garcia put the visitors in front after latching on to a through ball and slotting home in the 18th minute and he got his second from the penalty spot seven minutes before the break after Lucas Vazquez had hauled down Inigo Martinez.

Benzema pulled one back for Real with 17 minutes to go when his goal was initially ruled out for offside, but awarded after a VAR review.

The French striker then had another goal disallowed for offside but Athletic held on for the win.
