All eyes will be on Estadio San Mames when Athletic Club and Barcelona take on each other in the Copa del Rey last 16.
The Lions did well to make it to the Spanish Super Cup final, but Real Madrid eventually prove to be a big catch for the Basque outfit.
All Nunez, Vencedor, and Villalibre should miss out with injuries for the hosts.
Barca, on the other hand, aim to make amends for yet another heart-breaking loss in “El Clasico”. Since Xavi’s men have slim chances of winning the La Liga title, they will surely take Thursday’s clash seriously.
Considering that tired legs could prove to be a big problem for the Basques, we are tempted to put our money on the Catalan outfit.
Fit-again Dutch striker Memphis Depay is widely expected to return to the starting XI, as well as pacey winger Ansu Fati.
