Spanish professional football Primera Liga Real Madrid failed to qualify for the Spanish Super Cup (Supercopa) final in the 2020-2021 season.

Real Madrid lost 1-2 in the 2020-2021 Supercopa semi-finals against Atletico Bilbao at the Estadio La Rosaleda in Malaga, Spain on the 15th (Korean time).

Four teams participated in this Supercopa: Real Madrid, the winner of the Primera Liga in the 2019-2020 season, FC Barcelona, ​​the runner-up team, and Atletico Bilbao, the finalists of the Copa del Rey (Kings Cup) in the 2019-2020 season, and Real Sociedad.

Last season, Copa del Rey was unable to choose the winning team due to the aftermath of a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19).

Real Madrid, who raised the 2019-2020 Supercopa championship trophy, aimed for a second straight victory this season, but were caught by Bilbao, a relatively easy team.

Real Madrid, who had no defeat with 7 wins and 4 draws in the previous 11 matches, knelt to Bilbao after 12 games.

Bilbao took the lead with a right-footed shot after Raul Garcia infiltrated the left side of the penalty area in the 18th minute.

In the 38th minute of the first half, Garcia took responsibility for the final goal with a penalty goal.

Lucas Vasquez fouled Inigo Martinez in the penalty area, penalized for Bilbao, and Garcia, who played the kicker, shook the net.

Real Madrid, behind 0-2, hurriedly pursued it, but Marco Ascencio’s two shots in the 17th and 24th minutes of the second half hit the post.

Real Madrid managed to make up for a difficult goal by Karim Benzema in the 28th minute of the second half.

Bilbao, who defeated Real Madrid, will fight Real Sociedad at 5 am Korean time on the 18th and fight for the championship with FC Barcelona, ​​who finished in the final.
