Defending champions, Real Madrid lost all hope in reaching Sunday’s Spanish Super Cup final after suffering a shocking defeat against Athletic Bilbao on Thursday in Malaga.
Raul Garcia scored twice in the first half and Karim Benzema pulled one back but Zidane’s team were unable to put the ball at the back of the net before the final whistle.
“We are 90 minutes from winning a title,” said Athletic new coach, Marcelino Garcia Toral. “It would be amazing and even better to do it beating Real Madrid and Barcelona.”
The Spanish Cup Final between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao holds Sunday 17th.
