Messi had it first, in a hand in hand with Unai after a spectacular pass from Athur, but the Argentine in those who in good times would have gone inside failed when the decisive goal was sung. Also Williams in a center before 90 who did not finish well. But the striker would still have one left, when everything was ready to go to extra time.Ibai, who had just entered looking at overtime, faced Jordi Alba, abated him and put a measured center in the heart of the area where the ‘9’ appeared against all odds and on Busquets to close ranks. A shot, or rather a hairstyle, which Ter Stegen could not reach and was gradually entering the network for madness of San Mamés. Garitano’s plan had triumphed again, Athletic had taken advantage of Barcelona in the discount and this time to eliminate him, get into the semifinals and delve into the crisis.The Biscayns will be the fourth team in the semifinals draw.
