Our Athletic Club vs Mallorca prediction of a tight game is largely backed up by recent history with three of the last four meetings ending level. However Athletic were dominant 4-0 winners when the teams last met which was at San Mames in La Liga in February.

Athletic Club Preview: Centre-back doubtful

Central defender Yeray is a major doubt for the Basque side due to injury. Otherwise Athletic should be at full strength as they target major silverware.

Predicted Lineup: Agirrezabala (GK), De Marcos, Paredes, Vivian, Yuri, Prados, Ruiz de Galarreta, Iñaki Williams, Sancet, Nico Williams, Guruzeta
