Spanish Super Cup holders, Real Madrid crashed out on Thursday after losing to Athletic Bilbao on a day VAR had lots to say.
Raul Garcia of Athletic Bilbao scored twice in a 2-1 win over Real Madrid on Thursday to knock the holders out of the Spanish Super Cup and set up a final against Barcelona, setting up a make or mar grand stand for the Catalans.
The Catalans dumped Real Sociedad 3-2 in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw in Wednesday's first semifinal and beat Athletic 3-2 last week in La Liga.
