RED CARD!
The referee initially produces a yellow card for Gimenez who is going for the ball but raises his foot too high as he challenges Inigo Martinez. He is advised to watch the replay and after doing so, upgrades it to a red.
It goes from bad to worse for Atletico Madrid.

WHAT A TURNAROUND!
What a moment for the 19-year-old Nico Williams, who has been excellent since he came on. Atleti thought they had won this game but they've gone to sleep, conceded twice and are now staring at another defeat.

GOAL! ATLETICO MADRID 1-2 ATHLETIC CLUB (NICO WILLIAMS)
The substitute Nico Williams holds his nerve to fire Athletic Club in front!
It comes from another corner! Atleti fail to deal with it convincingly, the ball bobbles around and falls kindly to the teenager, who, cool as you like, side-foots it into the corner of the net!

WHAT A SAVE!
Oblak keeps the scores level! The Athletic Club Williams brothers combine in a terrific move and Nico closes in on goal even if it's from a tight angle. However, his shot is somehow kept out by Oblak!

Alvarez heads Athletic Club level! Having conceded from a corner, they've only gone and scored from one of their own!
Atleti's vulnerability at set-pieces is highlighted once again as Alvarez climbs highest to power a header past Oblak.

SAVE ON WILLIAMS!
Nico Williams gets plenty of power behind his shot but it's straight down the throat of Atleti goalkeeper Oblak who parries clear and his team mates clear the loose ends.

ATLETI CHANCE!
Lodi takes down a diagonal ball and carves in off the flank. He has team mates in support but selflessly opts to shoot and drags his shot wide. Joao Felix, who was in a great position, is left fuming!

BIG SAVE!
Athletic Club have finally come to life! They almost score with a set-piece of their own. Martinez's bullet header is saved on the line by Oblak - great stop!

GOAL! ATLETICO MADRID 1-0 ATHLETIC CLUB (UNAI SIMON, OWN GOAL)
Finally! That's just what this game needed!
Joao Felix, the smallest player on the pitch, is left unmarked to meet a corner delivery with a downward header. Unai Simon is at full stretch, the ball hits the post and cannons off his back and across the line!
A scrappy goal but Diego Simeone won't care!
60'
SLOW TEMPO
You would not believe a place in a cup final is at stake here. The game is being played at a snail's pace. There are so many players with great technical ability but it's been a huge disappointment so far.
