Athletic Club will play against Barcelona in Copa del Rey and we got Soccer betting tips and predictions for the match. The game is on Saturday, April 17 from 20:30 UK at Estadio Olímpico de Sevilla.
Athletic Club lost their first chance to win Copa del Rey this season. At the beginning of the month, they played the delayed final from last year against Real Sociedad but lost it 0:1. In La Liga, the team is in 11th place with 37 points after 30 matches. The last 4 clashes of the Basque team in the league finished without a winner – draws. The last one was against Alaves 0:0 at their stadium. The last victory of Athletic was at the beginning of March at home against Granada 2:1.
Barcelona is in 3rd place in La Liga with 65 points after 30 games. The last match of the Ronald Koeman team was El Classico against Real Madrid and the team from Madrid beat them 2:1. That ended a series of 6 victories in a row in the league for Barca. It will be very interesting to see what will happen and which team will win the title because the club is only 1 point behind Real Madrid and 2 points behind the leader Atletico Madrid. The best chance for Barca to finish with a trophy will be in the upcoming final for Copa del Rey because in La Liga their chances are 33%.
Barcelona is the favorite in the upcoming Copa del Rey final. If we look at the form of Athletic Bilbao, it is very poor and we just need to say that the team only scored 2 goals in their last 5 matches in all tournaments. However, at the beginning of the year, Athletic beat exactly Barcelona after extra time and won the Super Cup. That is why it will be a very interesting match and given how Athletic Bilbao is playing I think the safest bet will be that we will not see more than two goals.
