COPA DEL REY

Ath­letic Club v Sevilla

Sport360 - - Fixtures -

Be­fore the league ac­tion gets un­der way again there are cup fix­tures and Ath­letic host Sevilla in the first leg of the last 16 of the Copa del Rey on Thurs­day night.

The Basque team are cur­rently in a cri­sis in the league as they hover just above the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

A cup win could lift their spir­its ahead of their league en­counter against the same team this week­end.

If Sevilla are to bet­ter their Copa del Rey run from last sea­son, they need to go all the way and win it.

Pablo Machin’s men are favourites to pre­vail in all three games be­tween the two teams in the next seven days.
