Xavi Hernandez Wary Of Athletic Bilbao Threat

Barcelona ace Xavi expects a massive test against Copa del Rey final opponents Athletic Bilbao.

Barca need victory to send coach Pep Guardiola away a winner.

Xavi said: “They are a very demanding opponent, because they mark man to man. They are a physically strong side, they run for 90 minutes and create a lot of pressure up front. Llorente, for example, never stops running. Such intensity doesn’t leave us with much time to think.”

He also commented today that “it’ll be a great match. I think it’ll be very tough and physical.”
