All Spanish Europa league final


The Europa league final will be an all Spanish affair with Athletic Bilbao facing Atletico Madrid.

Bilbao arrived at the game a goal down to Sporting Lisbon after the first leg, but soon brought themselves level courtesy of a goal by Susaeta in the 17th minute.

After trading goals again the teams were three all on aggregate close to the end until a strike by Llorente in the 88th minute devastated Sporting, and saw Bilbao through to the final.

They will be facing Atletico Madrid who saw off Valencia. The only goal came from Adrián López in the 60th minute to give them a 5-2 agregate win.

Tempers flared towards the end the match when Atletico’s Mendes received a red card for slapping Soldado in the 79th minute and will play no part in the final.
