Draw in the morbid derby , which looked a lot like the Cup final because football failed. When the first part of the Anoeta clash was on its equator, it began to seem that what was seen on the grass was only a continuation of last Saturday's appointment, which ended with two shots on goal, one of them the penalty he scored Oyarzabal to take Real through the front door. Marcelino even repeated La Cartuja's line-up, which was disrupted when Yeray requested the change due to a muscle injury in the 13th minute
A more dynamic and dominating Athletic appeared, in front of a crouching Real, like the one in the second half of Seville. Imanol found the formula in front of the Bilbaoans, far from his principles, which he said he would never renounce, but the words are carried away by the wind, and even the most romantic of coaches knows that they pay him to win. The football was extinguished when arriving at the areas, forbidden territory for the forwards, a minefield. The attackers were chipping stone in the mine looking for a seam, but the gold was missing.

A couple of skirmishes, one per side, and little else. Only the setting was different, otherwise it seemed the same play performed over and over again. No changes to the script. Williams appeared on the last play of the first set, in a counterattack that ended in something halfway between a center and a shot that Remiro neutralized with merit, more due to the lack of habit of throwing himself for a ball than anything else. Athletic with more chicha in the second half, and Real recoiled as if it were not for more parties, which is still normal after the celebrations, but it preserved order on the field. He did not need to make too much effort, because despite the greater intensity of the rojiblancos, his lack of imagination was evident.
Berenguer made himself the first clear chance of Athletic, in a ball that fell from the sky and controlled without bouncing to put your foot in. Le Normand sent her to a corner, then Real caused a couple of dangerous counterattacks, especially after the departure of Portu, and in 84 came Athletic's goal, in a Villalibre header to the center of Berenguer and that of La Real, shortly after, in a monumental mistake by Unai Simón, who swallowed the distant launch of Roberto López.
