Athletic Club has lost the Copa Final by three goals to two against Sevilla. The end of regulation time was reached with a two-all draw and at that time and the later injury time the referee made two debatable as decisive decisions in view of the final outcome.
At first he indicated four minutes of injury time and in the end they were almost six minutes. In that interval of time Sevilla equalized the match. In the injury time, after the draw, and already with a 3-2 favourable to the Andalusians, which despite the fact the Nerja ground was catalogued as neutral and were playing almost at home, the referee avoided a clear penalty favourable to the rojiblancos, who are left with the consolation of having disputed a great Copa championship leaving in the ditch teams of the level of Celta, Espanyol, FC Barcelona and being superior, despite the defeat, to the Sevillian team who has revalidated its previous title.
On their return home and after a fourteen-hour bus trip, the expedition was entertained on Sunday, 28 June, in Laudio by the Dani-Muller Supporters’ Club which flattered them with a dinner before starting their well-deserved holiday.
