ATHLETIC BILBAO 1-0 BARCELONA: Barca out of Copa after last-gasp Athletic winner

 

Barcelona have been knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Athletic Bilbao at the quarter-final stage!

 

Williams, who had a first-half goal ruled out for offside, made the breakthrough for Athletic against the run of play with an impressive deft header three minutes into added time.

 

Barca built pressure throughout the second half and wasted two big chances, with Griezmann and Messi both being denied by the legs of Simon.

 

Athletic can now look forward to Friday’s semi-final draw, which also contains Granada, Real Sociedad and Segundo Division side Mirandes.

 

A bad week for Barcelona gets even worse, and they now three days to pick themselves up before heading to Real Betis in their next LaLiga outing.
