World news – Martinez leaves Copa in a tie


Gonzalo Melero scored the first goal in the middle of the first half when he came out of the box after a chance Athletic defense.

But Athletic, who still has to contest the 2019-2020 Copa final, returned back to a level just before the hour when Inigo Martinez reached the highest point in the penalty area to go home from a corner.

The game stayed on the field and the second leg – on March 4th in Levantes Ciudad de Valencia – must now produce a winner to face Seville or Barcelona in the April final.
