Copa del Rey: Sevilla’s late show downs Bilbao in the first leg

Sevilla  2 – Athletic Bilbao 1 (Copa del Rey, February 4, 2009) Athletic kept up their recent good form by taking the lead, Fernando Llorente scoring with a header from a corner. On the hour mark Bilbao repeatedly failed to clear a corner and Aldo Duscher slammed home the equaliser. With seven minutes remaining Freddy Kanoute was rewarded for taking a tumble in the box, but karma came back to bite as Kanoute hit his spot-kick against the post and then missed the rebound too. Sevilla stole the victory in the second minute of injury time courtesy of Lautaro Acosta.
