Barcelona News: Messi Sent Off As Barcelona Lose Spanish Super Cup to Athletic Bilboa

A pulsating end to a thrilling finale between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao. The game had everything a cup final deserved to have.

The passion, the fouls, the yellows and a first red card to the game’s greatest players. Sadly, Lionel Messi was denied his 35th club trophy by the referee who felt his childish tantrums deserved a red card.

Messi dismisses instantly ensured Athletico Bilboa were going to win the Spanish Super Cup after six years of waiting. But, it also announced the emergence of another superstars who outshined Lionel Messi at the Estadio Olimpico De Sevilla.

Inaki Williams was superb as he provided the assist to level Antoine Griezmann first half opener and then scored a stunner to clinch the victory for Bilboa.

Williams was the best player in the pitch Antoine Griezmann or the frustrated Lionel Messia but kudos must be giving to everyone for making the game lively to watch.

And congratulations to Athletic Bilboa who truly deserve it after beating Real Madrid 2-1 in the semi final and Barcelona 3-2 in the final.
