Copa del Rey final: Barcelona - Athletic Bilbao in Camp Nou Stadium. In this post betting tips and match preview.
BARCELONA - ATHLETIC BILBAO
These are the clubs with more Copa del Rey titles (26 Barça and 23 Athletic) and both teams are going to play their 37th final.
Barcelona is obviously the favourite, not only for its superiority but also because the match will be held in "Camp Nou", since spanish football federation decided it on last March.
In its home matches, Barcelona has lost only twice (both times 0-1 against Celta and Malaga), while Athletic has won only 10 of the 28 away matches played.
Barcelona has won both Liga clashes of the current season vs Athletic (2-0 in Camp Nou and 2-5 in San Mames Stadium).
2 important absences for Athletic, the left winger Iker Muniain and the lateral back de Marcos, while Barcelona has all its best players available, the only doubt was Suarez due to a little knee injury but it seems the uruguayan will be fit for the match.
In our opinion Barcelona will have the best.
BARCELONA: Ter Stegen; Alves, Piqué, Mascherano, Jordi
Alba; Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitic; Neymar, Messi, Suárez.
ATHLETIC BILBAO: Herrerín; Balenziaga, Laporte, Etxeita,
Iraola; San José, Beñat; Mikel Rico, Susaeta, Iñaki Williams; Aduriz.
