Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao live match

Atletico Madrid host Athletic Bilbao at the Metropolitan Stadium on Wednesday for the first leg of the 2023-24 Copa del Rey semi-final encounter.

Los Rojiblancos have their sights on a first title in the competition since 2013, and with both Real Madrid and Barcelona already out, they will fancy their chances.

Unbeaten in their last six games – winning five – Atletico come into the fixture on a solid run of form. It all began with a stunning 4-2 defeat of their city rivals Real Madrid in the last round of the cup, avenging their 5-3 defeat against them in the semi-finals of the Spanish Supercup just days prior.

On Sunday, Diego Simeone’s side avoided a loss in stoppage time against Los Blancos in another derby, with Marcos Llorente scoring in the 93rd minute to rescue a point.

Atletico have enjoyed a terrific campaign on many fronts so far but can expect a tough night against a free-scoring Athletic Bilbao side that knocked out Barcelona in the last round. Los Leones defeated the Spanish champions 4-2 at home to reach this stage of the competition. They trailed 2-1 in the match early on but fought back in spectacular fashion to secure a memorable victory.
