Beside scoring the winning goal, Athletic Bilbao’s Inaki Williams also received attention due to the duel against Gerard Pique that ended up leaving the Barcelona defender injured.
Inaki Williams scored a header in the final moments of the match at San Mames Stadium, eliminating Barcelona from the King’s Cup and continuing the Catalans’ troubles in away games.
That defeat was a major blow for Barcelona, which has recently gone through a difficult period – the cause of the lack of attack, Lionel Messi’s problems with Eric Abidal and Quique Setien’s problematic start.
Last night’s match was difficult for Barcelona defender Gerard Pique, who was booked with a yellow card after trying to stop Williams with his a\hands , but williams ragged Pique.
Pique was taken off due to a knee injury. The video of the incident went viral on social media.
However – to the fate of Setien, who is facing major problems in the squad, such as that of Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele – Pique said after the match that his injury is not serious.
