They will have to overcome Barcelona if they are to proceed to the semi-finals of the competition.

Barcelona are second in the league and maintain a home record of 8 wins, 0 draws and 1 loss which has granted favorite odds 1.50 (1/2) against Diego Simeone’s men.

A win for Bilbao stands at 3.40 (12/5) and a tie between the two sides has been set at 3.20 (11/5), but judging the recent performances of both teams, a win for the hosts seems to the more realistic bet.
