FC Barcelona out of Copa del Rey after Athletic Bilbao's remontada

In a dramatic Copa del Rey quarter-final clash at San Mamés, Athletic Bilbao's Williams brothers orchestrated Barcelona's 4-2 defeat in extra time. Inaki Williams, coming off the bench, broke the deadlock at the end of the first additional period, while Nico, eight years his junior, sealed the victory with the last kick of the game. Barcelona, previously defeated in the competition in 2020 and 2022, suffered an early setback as Gorka Guruzeta gave Bilbao the lead within 36 seconds. Despite a quick turnaround with goals from Robert Lewandowski and Lamine Yamal, Bilbao's Oihan Sanchet's equalizer paved the way for a historic win. The encounter marked the 46th Copa match between the two teams, with Bilbao gaining payback for Barca's previous final victories. The Williams brothers' stellar performance, including Inaki's fortunate rebound goal and Nico's sublime strike, showcased Bilbao's determination in a memorable clash.
