Match Preview

  • Athletic Bilbao will look to draw first blood in this Copa del Rey semi-final first leg, but having conceded first in the three previous rounds, the Spanish Super Cup winners may make things hard for themselves from the outset. As a result of that tendency to concede, Athletic have now witnessed both teams score in nine straight games, as well as three of the last four H2Hs (W4).
  • The 23-time champions and this competition’s first-ever winner have a rich history in this tournament, and with six wins from their last ten home matches (D1, L3), and seven from their last ten Copa del Rey home fixtures (L3), they deserve their favourites tag here. Notably, five of those seven cup wins saw Athletic take a lead into HT.
  • Levante will be no pushovers however, and travel here unbeaten in nine games – and that’s despite conceding in eight, and letting in the first goal in four! The visitors are vying for their first-ever ‘official’ Copa del Rey title after spending decades arguing that a Republican football competition they won in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War is the equivalent of the Copa del Rey. Unsuccessful so far, and desperate for the trophy, Levante may believe this is their year after already negotiating four Copa del Rey away fixtures this term.
  • They led at HT in all four, and scored during both halves in three – including a 4-2 win at Valladolid last month. They’ve now scored before HT in five straight competitive away matches, including an impressive 2-1 win at Real Madrid in their previous road trip.
  • Players to watch: Raúl García has been Athletic’s first goalscorer in two of their three Copa del Rey games, whilst Levante’s Sergio León has already scored five away goals in the 2020/21 tournament!
  • Hot streak: Nineteen consecutive H2Hs have seen the game’s final goal netted after the 60th minute.
