Athletic vs Barcelona: prediction for the Copa del Rey fixture

On January 20, Lions will host The Blaugrana in the Copa del Rey match. What to expect from this battle? The answer is in our prediction.

Athletic Bilbao

For another time Athletic reached the final of the Spanish Super Cup, which was held in Saudi Arabia last week. Basques put on a show in the first match - they scored an own goal, but managed to come back and eventually recorded a victory over Atletico (2:1). 

On Sunday, Lions played against Real Madrid in the final, but this time Madrid team celebrated a victory - The Blancos left no chance to the Red-Whites (0:2). 

In the first match of Copa del Rey 24-time holder of that trophy recorded a victory over Mancha (2:0) and advanced into the round of 32, where they will play today. 

Marcelino's men are not so successful in La Liga. In 21 rounds Bilbao team recorded only six victories and 10 draws, which brought 28 points and a 9th spot in the standings. In two most recent rounds hosts beat Osasuna (3:1) and drew to Alaves (0:0). 

Nunes won't be able to play in the match. 

Barcelona

On their way to that match Barcelona recorded a comeback victory over a modest Linares (2:1) side, after that team went to the new edition of Spanish Super Cup. 

Catalan side played only one match in Saudi Arabia, in which team put up a quality performance and a number of goals. The semi-final match against Real ended with a victory for Madrid team. 

Catalan side have eight victories and eight draws in La Liga, those results brought 32 points. After 20 rounds team is only at 6th position. After a draw against Sevilla (1:1) Xavi's men started the 2022 year with a victory over Mallorca (1:0) and a draw against Granada (1:1).

Team's offensive line is looking weak, they scored only 31 goals, eight of them were scored by Depay.

Araujo, Braithwaite, Wague, Garcia, De Jong, Demir and Umtiti won't feature in the match.

Prediction

It is a match between two teams, who recently played in the Super Cup. Athletic are playing well in cup matches, but today they won't have many chances for a success. Catalan side looked confident in recent matches and today Xavi's men will try to extend their success. On Sunday, Bilbao played against Real Madrid in the final of Super Cup, so team had less time for rest, which might be a key factor in this match. We offer to place a bet on the Blaugrana.
