Hello guys, a wonderful morning to you all, we are here again to give you the review of the matches that were played yesterday Thursday February 6, 2020. Ride with us as we check them all out.
It’s no longer news that Barcelona and Real Madrid have both been dumped out of the Copa del Rey after falling to defeats in the hands of Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad respectively.
That leaves only four teams left in the competition who are now in the semi-final. They include; Mirandes, Granada, Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao.
Let’s break it down on how it went..
Inaki Williams scored a stoppage time goal, an header to be precise, a 93 minutes strike to give Athletic Bilbao the needed winner over Barcelona who have for the past six years reached the final of the competition, winning in four different occasions during those times. The likes of Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Ansu Fati who all fixtured in this match were all helpless as they watch another chance for a trophy this season slip off their hands.
Real Madrid meanwhile almost took the match beyond normal time but the damaged had already been done before they could salvage the situation. Real Sociedad who were later reduced to 10 men after defender Ander Gorosabel was sent off for a second yellow took a 4-1 lead with a goal from Martin Odegaard against his parent club Madrid, a brace from Alexander Isak, and another goal from Mikel Merino.
Marcelo, Rodrygo and Nacho all scored for Zinedine Zidane’s side but it was not enough to help them have a chance for another trophy this season.
Both teams, Real Madrid and Barcelona who lead eachother by three points on the La Liga table with the former first and the latter second now have their only chance to win a trophy this season in the La Liga. There is also a slimmer chance in the Champions League that is highly competitive considering that teams from different parts of Europes are still in the competition.
Kudos to Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad, it’s a wonderful achievement. The Spanish league is getting more interesting with teams outside the La Liga top four making the waves.
