  • Competition: Copa del Rey
  • Date: Thursday, 29th February 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:30 UTC / 21:30 CET
  • Venue: Estadio San Mamés (Bilbao)

On Thursday night at San Mames, we will have an exciting Copa del Rey match between Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid. The two teams met in the first leg of this semifinal three weeks ago, and in that game, the team from Basque stunned the favorites and took a 1-0 win. Now, Diego Simeone's team will have a hard task to win on Thursday and progress to the final. 

Athletic Bilbao are playing well lately. Actually, they were on the run of six games without a loss in a row until Sunday, when Ernesto Valverde's team lost 3-1 on the road against Betis. Guests were almost without chances in that game as they had xG of only 0.16 and three shots on the goal. 

Right now, Atletico Madrid are in the worst moment this season as they won only one of the last six matches. In the previous game, they played 2-2 on the road against Almeria. According to the stats, guests had xG of 1.34, while the home side had only 0.39. Still, that wasn't enough for Simeone's team to take all three points.

Athletic Bilbao team news

Nico Williams got a red card last weekend against Betis. Still, La Liga suspensions don't count for Copa del Rey, so we should expect Nico in the starting lineup on Thursday. That leaves Inigo Lekue and Ander Herrera as the only Athletic Bilbao players who are unavailable for the cup tie.
