Spanish Super Cup: Real Madrid loses, Barcelona to face Athletic Bilbao in final

Real Madrid are out of the Spanish Super Cup, after they lost 2-1 to Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night.

Raul Garcia scored twice in the first half, to give Athletic a deserved lead at the break.

Although Karim Benzema pulled one back, the holders could not find a second goal to drag the game into extra time.

Athletic had won only one of their previous 22 matches against the LaLiga champions. But beat them for the first time since March 2015 at La Rosaleda on Thursday to hand Marcelino his first victory.

They will now face Barcelona in the Supercopa de Espana final.
