Real Sociedad defeats Athletic in classic and is champion

Real Sociedad is the great champion of the King’s Cup of the 2019-20 season. Today, coach Imanol Alguacil’s team won the Basque classic against Athletic Bilbao 1-0 at the empty Olympic Stadium in La Cartuja, Seville, to take the title. Oyarzabal scored the only goal of the game.

The two clubs preferred to postpone last season’s final to today’s date with the idea of ​​having fans at the stadium. However, the decision was not attended by the public because of the situation of the coronavirus pandemic in Spain.

Real Sociedad will only have the title for two weeks, as the final of the 2020-21 King’s Cup, between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao, is scheduled to take place on April 17.

Today’s first half was truncated, with little clear chance of scoring on both sides. The second stage, on the other hand, was busier.

In the 13th minute of the second half, Íñigo Martínez knocked Portu into the box. The referee gave the penalty and expelled the defender from Athletic. After reviewing the VAR, the penalty was maintained, but the red card turned yellow.

In the collection, Oyarzabal displaced goalkeeper Unai Simón and opened the scoring for Sociedad.

The goal secured the title for Real Sociedad, which had been without a major title for more than 30 years. The “drought” ended just in the final against the biggest rival.
