  • ATH vs ESL Dream11

    ATH vs ESL Dream11: Athletic Club have reached the last two Copa del Rey finals and this season they have now beaten both Barcelona and Real Madrid after their midweek 1-0 win before this one. It was a tactical masterclass from Marcelino, once again, as the Basque side look to continue their excellent cup runs. They come up against an Espanyol side that look set to avoid relegation back down to the second division, following their promotion last season. The Catalans have been impressive defensively this season and a low-scoring encounter in this one is expected.
