Athletic Bilbao vs Espanyol
In the first match of the semifinals in the tournament for the Cup of the King Athletic Bilbao welcomes Espanyol. Both teams will throw all the powers in their attempts to reach the finish line in the race, as this appears to be their only way to qualify for the European competitions next season. The hosts have won the Cup of the King in Spain 23 times and the guests have triumphed 4 times in the tournament. One thing is for sure - you`d better not skip that match, because it is going to be pretty interesting! You can watch it on the TV or live stream, it is all up to you.
The team was routed 5:2 at home over the weekend by Barcelona at a meeting of the Spanish Championship, thus cut off a series of four matches without a loss. Athletic Bilbao is very wobbly from the start of the season and is in the bottom half of the table in La Liga. In front of its fans recorded only one win in the last six games of 'San Mames`. Due to a penalty, the duel will be missed by one of the main advocates of the team Ajmerik Laporte.
The team lost with the final result adviced by www.soccer-stats.org of 1:2 to Valencia at the weekend at a meeting of La Liga, as this was the third consecutive loss for the team. Espanyol has a very poor performance in his previous visits, having earned only two wins - one in La Liga and one in the tournament for the Cup of the King. With punishment for this meeting are two of the major proponents of the team - Alvaro Gonzalez and Victor Alvarez. And the question remains the participation was Abraham.
See what has happened in the latest 6 direct meetings between both teams:

Athletic Bilbao vs. Espanyol - 1:2
Espanyol vs. Athletic Bilbao - 3:2
Athletic Bilbao vs. Espanyol - 0:4
Espanyol vs. Athletic Bilbao - 3:3
Athletic Bilbao vs. Espanyol - 3:3
Athletic Bilbao won once this season against the team of Espanyol with a 3:1 on 'San Mames`. This happened during the month of November at the Summit of La Liga. And before this match, guests from Catalonia were in a series of seven matches without a loss against the Basques. The hosts will try to take advantage before the second leg, and therefore the most reasonable bet is for their victory. And that is exactly our soccer forecast - 1.
