Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona face against each other in the final of the Copa Del Rey. The match at the "Camp Nou" is on Saturday evening, May 30 2015. The battle for the trophy opposes two successful teams, as the Basques have won 23 Cups and Barca triumphed 26 times. Athletic Bilbao took the trophy last in 1984 and Barcelona in 2012. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmakers are as follows: 13.00 for Athletic Bilbao, with a draw at 7.00 and as were expected Barca is determined as the favorite with odds of 1.20.
Athletic Bilbao finished the season in La Liga in seventh place. Last week the team won with 4:0 at home against Villarreal and ensures its place in the Europa League this autumn. "Basques" are unbeaten in seven consecutive games and enter in this meeting in high spirits. Midfielder Oscar de Marcos is suspended and will miss the most important match for his team this year. With injuries are Iker Muniain and Ander Iturraspe, as their absence would open gaps in the midfield of the composition of Athletic Bilbao. Their place will be occupied by Ager Aketxe and Inaki Williams.
Barcelona won the Primera Division, and also except this forthcoming final, the team will play in the final match of the Champions League on June 6 against Juventus. The boys of Luis Enrique have a unique opportunity for a treble, but it goes through tough victory against Athletic Bilbao. Barca lost once in the last 21 games in all competitions in the King`s Cup and is in a process of eight consecutive wins. The statistics from the direct matches is also on its side, as Barcerona lost only once in the last 24 direct meetings against Bilbao. The only player with issues is the striker Luis Suarez, as his place probably will be taken by Pedro Rodriguez.
