Holders Barcelona 4/6 to win away to finalists Athletic Bilbao in tonight’s Copa Del Rey clash
Competition: Spanish Copa Del Rey
Market: Barcelona to win against Athletic Bilbao
Odds: 4/6 @ William Hill
Barcelona have a repeat of last season’s Copa Del Rey final with Athletic Bilbao standing in their way of the semi-finals. The visitors are favourites to come out on top once more, and could get the job done with a convincing first leg win over Bilbao tonight.
With the Catalans flying high in the Spanish La Liga, while their opponents are struggling for form in recent weeks, Barcelona could well take advantage and take an aggregate lead to the Nou Camp. Two defeats from 19 league games is a fearsome record for Bilbao to try and change tonight, and their poor run is likely to see them coming unstuck.
No win from their last three in the division, and their last result in the league was a 6-0 trouncing by Barcelona. It’s hard to see anything other than an away win, but Bilbao might put up more of a fight to avoid another embarrassment. Nevertheless, William Hill are giving odds of 4/6 for Barcelona to win against Athletic in the first leg of the Spanish Copa Del Rey quarter-finals.
