ATHLETIC BILBAO star Inaki Williams stood up for younger brother Nico after being on the receiving end of a shocking challenge on Monday night.
In stoppage time at the end of the match, Nico, 19, was sprinting down the line when Osasuna man Chimy Avila came thundering in with a reckless lunge near the touchline.
Somehow the Bilbao winger managed to evade the hurtling scissor challenge of Avila and carry on his run.
The referee did not penalise the horror tackle with the Osasuna forward already on a yellow card.
But Inaki took matters into his own hands as he furiously reacted to the dangerous tackle his brother had been on the end of.
The older Williams brother confronted Avila, pointing to his head and appearing to tell the Osasuna man to think before making such a challenge.
But the 27-year-old Argentine did not take that advice.
He immediately went over to Athletic Bilbao defender Inigo Martinez and pushed him in the chest.
He also grabbed the Spanish international by the neck in a senseless act.
And that was the final straw for the referee as Avila was finally dismissed for a second yellow card.
It capped a dismal night for Osasuna as Bilbao left Pamplona with a comfortable 3-1 victory.
Kike Garcia had given the hosts the lead in the 10th minute but Bilbao levelled just six minutes later through Oihan Sancet.

The visitors then completed the comeback midway through the first half when Sancet netted a second.
And the 21-year-old Spaniard completed a superb hat-trick in the 68th minute to secure all three points for Marcelino Garcia Toral’s side.
Bilbao now sit 10th in the LaLiga table, while Osasuna are 14th – just six points off the relegation zone.
