Williams Brothers Inspire Athletic Club To Dominant Atletico Win

GTBCO FOOD DRINL

March 01, (THEWILL) – Athletic Club cruised past Atlético Madrid with a 3-0 win in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final tie. The dominant victory sets up a clash with RCD Mallorca in the 2024 final, with Los Leones seeking a record 24th cup triumph.

The Williams brothers proved decisive, combining twice in the first half to give the hosts a two-goal lead. Nico Williams delivered an inch-perfect cross for Iñaki Williams to volley home and double Athletic’s aggregate lead. The duo linked up again soon after, Nico this time applying the finishing touch to extend the advantage.

Athletic remained firmly in control throughout, Oihan Sancet spurning a great chance before substitute, Gorka Guruzeta, rolled in the third just after the hour mark. Despite late pressure, Athletic goalkeeper, Julen Agirrezabala, ensured a fifth clean sheet of the campaign to frustrate the visitors.

While Atlético’s hopes ended in disappointment, Athletic stand one win away from Copa glory after a 40-year wait. On current form, ending that long drought seems a formality.
