Athletic Bilbao vs FC Barcelona Prediction 20 January 2022

Tournament: Copa del Rey
Location: San Mamés Stadium, Bilbao
Match date: 01/20/2022 at 20:30

This Thursday, Bilbao will host the crucial Copa del Rey round of 16 match between Athletic and Barcelona.

Athletic made their debut in the Cup from the round of 32 beating Mancha, 2:0. In addition, the Basques deservedly lost 0:2 to Real Madrid in the final of the country's Super Cup. And in the championship, after the matches with Osasuna (3:1) and Alaves (0:0), the Lions feel fine on the ninth line of the standings.

Only 32 points in twenty games and a modest goal statistic of 31:23 - with such indicators, the recent hegemons of the championship, Barcelona, ​​are occupying only sixth place. The new year began for Blaugrana with duels against Mallorca (1:0) and Granada (1:1) in the league, Linares (2:1) in the Cup and Real Madrid (2:3) in the Super Cup.

More status Barcelona are predictably considered the favorites of this pair. But we would not discount Athletic, who, with the support of their native stands, are very motivated. We think there will be hits from both sides.
