Valencia vs. Athletic: prediction for the Copa del Rey match

Valencia got past the first round of Copa del Rey confidently. Will the Bats put up a solid performance against Athletic? The answer is in our prediction.

Match announcement

Valencia

Valencia secured a comfortable victory over Gijon (4:0) in the previous round of Copa del Rey, which probably satisfied the fans after an underwhelming performance by the Oranges in La Liga. The Bats are going through another unsuccessful season, but they are hoping that the victories will come with a new stadium.

Gennaro Gattuso's men currently have five victories and five draws in La Liga, delivering 20 points and a 12th position in the standings. After two consecutive defeats, team drew to Almeria (2:2). 

Correia, Nico and Domenech will miss the upcoming game. 

Athletic Bilbao

Athletic managed to beat Eldense (6:1) and Espanyol (1:0) at the start of Copa del Rey, but things are not looking good for the team in La Liga. Bilbao side is still unable to find the first victory after the World Cup break. 

After a November victory over Valladolid, the Lions had two draws and two defeats, the most recent one to Real Madrid (0:2). After 18 matches, the visitors have seven victories and five draws, delivering 26 points and an 8th position in the standings. 

Martinez will miss the upcoming game through injury.

Prediction

Both clubs have been unsuccessful in recent La Liga matches, but achieved positive results in Copa del Rey. Athletic have a more experienced squad, but Valencia have a home advantage and a huge desire to reach the final, just like in the previous season. We are expecting a success from the Oranges here.
