The hosts are unbeaten in six competitive matches, while the visitors have avoided defeat in each of their previous three games.

Atletico will head into the midweek cup tie off the back of a 1-1 draw against their local rivals Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.

They will now turn their attention to Wednesday’s Copa del Rey tie as they begin to dream about winning the competition for the 11th time in their history and the first time since lifting the trophy in the 2012-13 season.

Due to their participation in the Spanish Super Cup, Atletico have only had to negotiate two rounds to reach their first Copa del Rey semi-final in seven years, beating second-tier side Lugo in the last 16, before eliminating current holders Real Madrid in the quarter-finals.

Diego Simeone’s side will be confident about making home advantage count in Wednesday’s first leg, having avoided defeat in each of their last 28 competitive matches at the Metropolitano since losing 1-0 to Barcelona in a league game in January 2023.

In contrast to their hosts, Athletic Bilbao have had to beat five teams to secure their spot in the semi-final, including Rubi, Cayon, Eibar and Alaves.

Ernesto Valverde’s side went on to beat record winner Barcelona in the quarter-finals last month, as they fought back from 2-1 down to secure a 4-2 victory after extra time.

Athletic Bilbao are sitting second in the list of record Copa del Rey winners, but they have not lifted the trophy since winning the competition for the 23rd time in 1984.

Since beating Barcelona in the final 40 years ago, Athletic have gone on to finish runners-up on six occasions, including defeats in successive finals in the space of a month in 2021 after the 2020 showpiece event had been pushed back a year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

After reaching the semi-finals in the last two seasons, Athletic are now preparing to make their fifth successive appearance in the last four, and they will certainly head into the first leg in a confident mood following Friday’s 4-0 home victory over Mallorca in La Liga.

Atletico Madrid vs. Athletic Bilbao Head to head

In the 61 previous meetings between these two teams, Atletico have claimed 34 victories while Athletic have won 18, and they have drawn in nine. Athletic have scored 70 goals and conceded 101 in the process.
