Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona live streaming: Preview
Who will win the 2021 Copa del Rey?
Just a fortnight ago, Athletic Club Bilbao were in Seville to play the 2020 Copa Final but were beaten 1-0 by bitter rivals Real Sociedad.
That was the first ever Copa del Rey Final to finish 1-0 with the only goal coming from the penalty spot.
This means the Lions still haven’t won a ‘major trophy’ since doing the double in 1984.
However, they have won two Supercopa de Españas since then, both won courtesy of victories over Barcelona.
One was in 2015 and the other in January of this year when Iñaki Williams’ stunning extra time winner saw Athletic claim the Supercopa.
Now, Marcelino’s side are looking to repeat that in this competition.
As for Barcelona, this’ll be their tenth Copa del Rey Final since 2009, winning six of them including four-in-a-row from 2015 to 2018.
However, they’re looking for their first trophy under Ronald Koeman and didn’t win any silverware last season.
Last weekend’s defeat to Real Madrid in El Clásico only adds to the pressure as they’re now third in the table.
Barça are the Copa del Rey’s most successful club, Athletic are second on that list, and they’re desperate to win the trophy for a 31st time.
Who will be celebrating at Estadio de La Cartuja?
Prediction: Athletic Bilbao 1-3 Barcelona
Athletic have lost their last six major cup finals, five in the Copa del Rey and the 2012 UEFA Europa League Final to Atlético de Madrid.
This includes losing to Barça in the 2009, 2012 and 2015 finals.
