Atletico will do everything in their power to overturn the deficit when they head to the San Mames on Thursday. Athletic Club will just need a draw to advance to the final, where the winner of Real Sociedad and Mallorca awaits.

Both sides warmed up for the game with winless La Liga weekends, as Atletico Madrid were held to a 2-2 draw by rock-bottom Almeria, and Athletic Club lost 3-1 at Real Betis.

H2H / Stats 

Overall, teams have played 50 games with each other. In the games, Bilbao won in 16 matches, while Atletico Madrid managed to win in 26 meetings with 8 games ending in a draw. 

Team News 

Ernesto Valverde will make late fitness checks on certain players in the coming days but he faces issues at full-back.

Right back Inigo Lekue is already out with a hamstring injury and veteran left back Yuri Berchiche could also miss out. As per the latest update from Mundo Deportivo, Berchiche was forced off against Real Betis, and the 34-year-old will not be rushed back. Imanol García de Albéniz is set to replace Berchiche in the starting lineup as Athletic Club aims for a first Copa del Rey final since 2021.

Atleti has injury worries of their own as Antoine Griezmann isn’t still expected to feature in the game and is joined on the sidelines by Cesar Azpilicueta, Thomas Lemar and Machin Perez

Probable Line-Up

Athletic Bilabo XI: Simon (GK), de Marcos, Vivian, Paredes, Berchiche, de Galarreta, Prados, Sancet, Berengeur, Williams, Guruzeta

Atletico Madrid XI: Oblak (GK), Savic, Gabriel, Mandava, Molina, De Paul, Koke, Barrios, Lino, Depay, Correa

Verdict 

This will be a closely contested affair going by the recent form of both teams. While Atletico Madrid may have the historical edge in head-to-head matches, Athletic Bilbao’s strong home record and goal-scoring ability make them a formidable opponent.
