Player Ratings: Athletic Bilbao 1 - 0 Real Madrid; 2022 Copa Del Rey

Real Madrid have once again been knocked out of the Copa Del Rey. Carlo Ancelotti made the bizarre decision to start Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes, and Casemiro despite all three Brazilians arriving back from South America less than 48 hours before the match. Their performance was lackluster and the entire Real Madrid team performance was sub-par. There were no excuses for Real Madrid’s lack of a cohesive game plan and Carlo Ancelotti will take much of the blame for that along with his personnel choices.

Athletic Bilbao strike late to send Real Madrid crashing out of Copa del Rey

Athletic Bilbao sent Real Madrid crashing out of the Copa del Rey thanks to a stunning last-minute strike by substitute Álex Berenguer at San Mamés. Berenguer’s goal in the 89th minute secured a surprise 1-0 victory in the quarter-finals, as Marcelino’s side followed up their last-16 win over Barcelona with another unexpected result. It was a deserved breakthrough for the hosts, who had been the stronger side for much of the contest, and made up for defeats to Real in the Spanish Super Cup final and two recent La Liga matches.

Immediate Reaction: Athletic Bilbao 1-0 Real Madrid

Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Real Madrid. Here is the immediate reaction to the cup defeat. Up next: press conference details, player ratings and the ManagingMadrid podcast. After recent SuperCup success and with the club still sitting at the top of La Liga - victory over Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey quarter finals would send Los Blancos on their way to a domestic treble. Rumours had it that both Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale might get the nod for this one, but those were quickly quashed when Rodyrgo Goes, Casemiro and Vinícius Júnior took a late flight home from Brazil just in time. All three were listed in the line-up, with Luka Jović left on the bench in favour of no recognised striker in Karim Benzema’s absence. Dani Carvajal did return on the bench, but Lucas Vázquez was still preferred ahead of him for now. Nacho Fernández captained the side today after being called in at left-back in place of the injured Ferland Mendy.

Ama Maria was the happiest woman in the world. That was her little boy down there, scoring the goal that took Athletic Club -- the only team he had ever wanted to play for -- to the Supercopa de Espana final. And that, that was her little boy too, down there with him. Nico Williams' mum was there to see the moment the 19-year-old guided a gorgeous shot past Jan Oblak, tears welling up in her eyes; his brother was there too, right there. Inaki Williams plays with him, as he always has.
