Messi sees red as Athletic Club comes from behind to win Spanish Supercopa

2 min read

Inaki Williams scored a stunning extra time winner and Lionel Messi was sent off as Athletic Club fought back from 2-1 down heading into stoppage time to win the Spanish Supercopa in extra time against Barcelona.

Messi returned to the Barca lineup having missed the penalty shootout victory over Real Sociedad on Wednesday through injury and looked somewhat short of match fitness throughout.

This didn’t stop the Argentine from creating the opening goal after 40 minutes, spreading a pass out to Jordi Alba and then setting up Antoine Griezmann for the shot, which the Frenchman swept home from 12 yards out.

However, Athletic Club responded only a matter of seconds later as Oscar de Marcos ghosted into the box to convert a cross on the half volley with Barcelona caught asleep at the back.

Raul Garcia had a header chalked off for a marginal offside call in the second half before Griezmann scored what looked to be the winner 13 minutes from time, diverting a low cross from Jordi Alba into the back of Unai Simon’s net.

Athletic Club weren’t finished, though, and equalised for a second time when Asier Villalibre came off the bench to finish an Iker Muniain freekick in stoppage time, sending the match into extra time.

Williams netted the winner in stunning fashion three minutes into extra time, cutting inside on to his right foot to lash home a powerful strike off the inside of the far post with Marc-Andre ter Stegen nowhere close.

Barcelona finished the match with 10 men after VAR was used in the final moments of extra time to spot Messi struck Villalibre with an arm off the ball, compounding a miserable collapse by the Catalans.
