Valencia CF vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction 26 January 2023

Tournament: Copa del Rey
Location: Mestalla Stadium, Valencia
Match date: 01/26/2023 at 19:00

One of the pairs of the Spanish Cup quarter-finals will be ambitious Valencia and Athletic.

Only one win in the previous five league matches has seen Valencia fall to twelfth position with a slim chance of getting into the European league spot. But in the Copa del Rey, the Bats feel more confident. Triumphs over La Nucia (3-0) and Sporting Gijón (4-0) are a clear confirmation of this.

Athletic have won many cup finals, but that was back in the twentieth century. And on the way to today's quarter-final, the Basques defeated Alzira (2-0), Sestao (2-1), Eldense (6-1) and Espanyol (1-0). Prior to the match, Valverde's men capitulated to Real in La Liga (0-2), thereby dropping to eighth place.

Both teams are not in the best condition right now, but at the same time they are at the same level of development. We think that on the way to the cup semi-final, both Valencia and Athletic will make careful defensive play a priority.
