First of all, I invite you to take a look at the other interesting Copa del Rey duel, Villarreal vs Real Sociedad. Barcelona will welcome Bilbao in the last 16 round of the competitions and it is going to be a very attractive duel, since Barca lost the first leg, 1-2 away from home last week.

By the way, last week has been a decent one, with many single bets won, including a final score. When it comes to combos, Saturday we had 3/3 winning tickets, but then Sunday was not impressive at all.


  • Barcelona faced Villarreal few days ago in LaLiga, dropping two points in the title race, after 1-1 away from home, Messi scoring the equalizer in the 90th minute.
  • The Catalans are on the third position in Spain now, with 35 points, five less than Real Madrid, their rivals having a match in hand too.
  • The Spanish Cup is a priority now for Barcelona, so the hosts have to give their best, otherwise we can say that Jose Enrique's position is not so safe anymore.
  • Barcelona need to win this game with 1-0 or by a margin of at least two goals to qualify. It is not impossible at all, since we are talking about one of the best teams in the world.
  • Even Barca lost the first leg, 1-2 away, they are big favourites to qualify in Quarter Finals, with odds around 1.22.

Athletic Bilbao

  • Athletic Bilbao conceded no fewer than nine goals in the last two trips at Camp Nou, losing 0-6 and 1-3.
  • Their recent form is really good, coming here after three wins and one draw.
  • More than that, The Basques are riding high in the home games, struggling away from home, proof that they won only one of the last seven official trips.
  • The odds for Bilbao to win this game are around 17.00 at the moment, while for Bilbao to qualify are around 4.25
  • The visitors failed to win any game at Camp Nou in the past 15 years.
  • Their last victory here took place in November 2001, 2-1 in a LaLiga match.
