Copa del Rey: Real Sociedad Wins First Major Trophy After 34-years of Trophy Drought

  Real Sociedad have finally won a trophy after 34-years of trophy drought after they defeated  Athletic Bilbao to win the  Copa del Rey.

Real Sociedad beat local rivals Athletic Bilbao 1-0 in the rescheduled 2020 Copa del Rey final on Saturday.

Captain Mikel Oyarzabal netted the winner by sending keeper Unai Simon the wrong way from the penalty spot in the 63rd minute after strike partner Portu was felled in the area by Athletic defender Inigo Martinez.

The match was postponed by a year at the request of both clubs to ensure fans could attend but continued coronavirus restrictions in Spain meant the showpiece in Seville’s La Cartuja stadium took place without any supporters.

Athletic have now lost their last five Copa finals but have another shot at the trophy when they play Barcelona in this season’s showpiece back at La Cartuja on April 17.
