Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Against all odds, Athletic Club failed to beat Formentera at Estadio Municipal in the first leg of the Spanish Cup last 32, but it has to be noted that the Lions coach Jose Angel Ziganda rested some of his first-team regulars in the 1-1 draw with the Segunda B side. The Lions are one of the team who always take Copa del Rey matches very seriously and we predict they will leave their hearts on the field in Wednesday’s football match against Formentera. Coach Ziganda should field the best possible side this time out and there is every chance the La Liga side will make it to the last 16. Formentera’s showings on the travels leave a lot to be desired and we do not believe they are capable of spoiling Athletic’s party at San Mames Barria. Experienced attacker Aritz Aduriz is likely to lead the line for the hosts against the Segunda B team.
Highlighted Player (Iñaki Williams):
Inaki Williams is one of the most talented Spanish players. The pacey winger, who plays as a centre-forward as well, started his senior career at Basconia, scoring seven goals in 18 appearances for the club. In 2014 he moved to Athletic Bilbao, but he played for the reserve team at the beginning. Inaki impressed in the 2014/2015 season with Athletic Bilbao B and, as a result, he was given a chance to prove his worth in the Spanish top flight with the first team. The Spanish footballer made his La Liga debut on December 6, 2014, replacing injured attacker Aritz Aduriz in a 1-0 loss to Cordoba. Inaki Williams represented Spain at the 2017 U21 European Championship in Poland and he played 20 minutes in a 1-0 loss to Germany in the final of the tournament. Speaking of the senior squad, the Athletic Bilbao footballer made his Spain debut in a 3-1 victory over Bosnia on May 29, 2016. Inaki Williams was born in Bilbao on June 15, 1994.
