Valencia began its journey in the Spanish Cup with the last 132, where it easily outplayed the little-known Utrillas (3:0). Then came confident victories over Arenteiro (3:1) and Cartagena (2:1). The Bats reached the semifinals of the Copa with difficulties. In the round of 16, they faced Baleares and advanced to the quarterfinals due to the first-minute goal (1:0). In the quarterfinals, Valencia beat Cadiz 2:1.
Nothing can embarrass Athletic in the Copa del Rey. At the beginning of their way in this tournament, the Basques calmly defeated Mancho 2:0, but what happened next... The team showed their character in the last 16 and quarterfinals, knocking out the Copa Barcelona 3:2 and Real Madrid (1:0). We do not expect the Basques' hyperactive offensive game in the upcoming semifinals. Most likely, they will play in defense on the counterattack.
