Athletic slowly began to build a rhythm and finally equalized in the 31st minute when Nico Williams assisted Manex Asategi. Unai Pérez was called on to make a few big saves before Nico Serrano scored the winner in the 82nd minute. Athletic will play the winner of Racing and Alavés in the final on Sunday.
