WATCH: Mikel San Jose Scores Against Barcelona From Midfield

In the 14th minute of Athletic Bilbao’s Spanish Super Cup first leg tilt with Barcelona, Mikel San Jose picked up the ball from midfield and fired a shot over the head of Barcelona goalie Marc-André ter Stegen.

San Jose, 26, grew up in Bilbao’s youth system but spent three years at Liverpool, signing there as an 18-year-old.

The goal gave Bilbao a 1-0 lead in the first leg being played at the San Mames Stadium. In the second half, the Basque club doubled their lead.

A goal by top scorer Aritz Aduriz came in the 53rd minute, and he wasn’t done. Aduriz scored less than 10 minutes later, and then converted a penalty to complete a 15-minute hat trick and give Bilbao an incredible 4-0 win against the treble winners. The hat trick was the first against Barcelona since Diego Forlan did it in 2005 for Villarreal.

Prior to the match, BIlbao were 250/1 to win the match 4-0.
