Mancha Preview – Can Mancha put up resistance?

Segunda Division outfit, Mancha, face a mountain to climb when they come up against La Liga side, Athletic Bilbao, despite holding home advantage in this upcoming cup-tie in the Copa del Rey on Thursday evening.

Mancha have reached this stage of the domestic cup competition thanks to a 2-1 win against Inter de Madrid and most impressive of all, a 1-0 home win over La Liga side, Granada, so they will be hoping that they can replicate that result this evening.

However, Athletic Bilbao are an unknown quantity to Mancha as these two teams have never met before in any competition.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Athletic Bilbao Preview – Can Bilbao make quality count?

Athletic Bilbao will have been boosted by their recent 3-1 win away from home at Osasuna last time out in La Liga and the visitors will be seeking back-to-back wins in this evening’s Copa del Rey clash at Mancha.

Bilbao had also picked up a 3-2 home win over Real Betis recently too but these have been Bilbao’s only two wins out of their last 11 matches overall in all competitions.

However, Bilbao have been a tough nut to crack on the road as the visitors have suffered just one defeat out of their last 12 away games in all competitions and that was at Real Madrid.
