Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
After surviving Tenerife in the Copa del Rey last 16, Athletic Club will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Barcelona in the quarter-finals. The Lions head into the match following a 2-0 loss to Getafe, but the good news for the fans is that experienced attacker Aritz Aduriz have overcome his long-term injury. The veteran is likely to play some part against Barcelona, who booked their place in the Spanish Cup quarter-finals by beating Leganes 5-0.
Since Barca have been showing signs of improvement of late, new boss Quique Setien can breathe easier, but the game against the Basque outfit will be anything but a walk in the park for the Catalan giants. Considering that Quique Setien’s troops are still without influential centre-forward Luis Suarez, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals.
