Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona Prediction 17 April 2021

Tournament: Copa del Rey
Location: Estadio de La Cartuja
Match date: 04/17/2021 at 19:30

Sevilla will host the Spanish Cup final on the upcoming Saturday, where Athletic and Barcelona will advance.

Athletic are a strong middle-level team in La Liga, so their only chance to make it to European competition is to win Copa del Rey. On the way to the decisive battle, the Basque Lions defeated Ibiza (2:1), Alcoyano (2:1), Betis (2:1) and Levante (1:1, 2:1), showing their trademark fighting character.

At the same time, Barcelona eliminated from the tournament Cornella (2:0), Rayo Vallecano (2:1), Granada (5:3) and Sevilla (0:2, 3:0) - and in all cases it was not without additional time. Until recently, Blaugranas had a serious claim to the La Liga title, but last week's 1:2 fiasco against Real Madrid threw them down.

As for us, Barcelona will not miss almost the only chance to end 2021 with at least one trophy. Such a scenario is quite realistic, since the level of the Catalan club is still higher than that of Athletic.
