Athletic Bilbao lifted the 2015 Supercopa de España at Barcelona’s Camp Nou, defeating the La Liga and Copa Del Rey champions 5-1 on aggregate.

Having led 4-0 after a remarkable first leg in Bilbao, Athletic defended valiantly against the efforts of their attacking opponents and Aritz Aduriz’s 74th minute goal ensured they lifted their first title since 1984.

On a personal level, this evening’s game saw me fulfill a lifelong dream of witnessing a match at the largest stadium in Europe and, as an extra bonus, seeing four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi play and score for Barcelona.
