SPANISH CUP FINAL | ATHLETIC CLUB BILBAO - FC BARCELONA | THE DAY BEFORE

The city of Madrid is about to be visited by 1000s of ATHLETIC CLUB BILBAO & FC BARCELONA followers as both are to play the Final of the SPANISH CUP ( Copa del Rey ) tomorrow at the "Vicente Calderon Stadium" (Home of Atletico de Madrid).

Spanish Cup Final 2012
At.Bilbao - FC Barcelona.

A huge game to officially close the Spanish Football season with plenty of angles & stories in play:

  • At.Bilbao looks to overcome their Europa League Final loss
  • It will be FC Barcelona Coach Josep Guardiola last match
  • Bilbao Coach Bielsa looks to crown his great season with a title
  • Barcelona will be without Alves, Puyol & Abidal, thus needs a re-make of the defense
  • The Bilbao youngsters - Muniain, De Oscar, Susaeta, Ander Herrera - look to consolidate themselves as players in the true sense with a mayor title
  • Barça wishes to give Guardiola a goodbye title & send a message that their "winning cycle" has not yet ended.

Both teams have kept their cards close to their chest & are not giving hints as to what the line-ups will be.

What is clear that it will be a match not to be missed & promises to be very intense, exciting  & a hard fought affair. May the better team win & good luck to both Clubs.
