Inaki and Nico Williams lead Athletic Bilbao to Copa del Rey glory after 30-year wait

Inaki and Nico Williams etched their names in Athletic Bilbao’s history books as they played pivotal roles in the club’s long-awaited triumph in the Copa del Rey final against Mallorca.

The Williams brothers showcased their talent and resilience on Saturday evening at the Estadio Olímpico de Sevilla.

Despite Mallorca taking an early lead through Daniel Rodriguez in the 21st minute, Athletic Bilbao fought back fiercely, with Oihan Sancet leveling the score in the 50th minute, assisted by Nico Williams.

As the game remained deadlocked at 1-1 after regulation time, the tension soared into extra time. With neither side able to break the deadlock, the fate of the match was decided by penalties.

Athletic Bilbao held their nerve in the shootout, prevailing 4-2 to clinch their 24th Copa del Rey title, ending three decades of anticipation and breaking a streak of six consecutive final defeats.

Inaki’s substitution in the 91st minute and Nico’s full-game contribution were integral to the historic victory, marking a momentous occasion for the club and its passionate supporters.
