2021 Copa del Rey Final - How to watch Athletic Club vs Barcelona

April 16, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
Los Blaugranas will want to get back against Los Leones, who defeated them in the Super Cup final earlier this year.

What has been Athletic Club and Barcelona's form ahead of this match?

Athletic Club will make it to this game on a five, game streak without a win, but curiously, only one of those games has ended in defeat. Their last win in all comps came against Granada in La Liga on March 7. Since then, Los Leones lost once (vs Atlético) and drew four matches, the last one of those taking place against Alavés last week.

On the other side of the pitch, Barcelona will enter the Copa del Rey final after losing El Clásico last week. Prior to that, Los Culés had won four out of their last five games, with the only exception being their draw against PSG in the UEFA Champions League. During that run, Koeman's side has scored a whopping 15 goals, while their defense has conceded only five times.

How did Athletic Club and Barcelona get to the Copa del Rey final?

Athletic entered the tournament in the Round of 32, where they defeated U.D Ibiza with a 2-1 score. Then, Los Leones faced Alcoyano in the Round of 16, eliminating them with a similar result. Their Quarterfinal match against Betis ended in a penalty shootout, which they won 4-1. Then, the Basque sideh earned their ticket to the finals by beating Levante with a 3-2 result after extra time.

On the other hand, Barcelona started their run in the tournament with a 2-0 score in the Round of 32, where they needed extra time to beat the lower-tier side. Then, Los Blaugranas won their Round of 16 clash against Rayo 2-1. The Catalan side would go on to beat Granada 5-3 after extra time despite trailing 2-0 at one point of the game. Their semi-final clash would also be filled with drama, as an extra time goal by Martin Braithwaite helped them eliminate Sevilla with a 3-2 score to make it to the title clash.
