King’s Cup | Direct: Follow Athletic – Mallorca here


Athletic Club and RCD Mallorca seek this Saturday (10:00 p.m.) the title of the Copa del Rey 2024 in the final at the La Cartuja Stadium (Seville). On the one hand, the long-awaited quest to lift a trophy again in the Basques, a team that was ‘king of Cups’ but has not tasted it for 40 years, with six lost finals in this time. On the other hand, a Mallorca that wants to take advantage of its opportunity.

Ernesto Valverde’s men have proven to be one of the most powerful teams in the League, fighting for the ‘Top 4’, in addition to reaching their third final of the last five. Although Bilbao’s love affair with the Cup has become something of a curse, Athletic Club continues to boast a special relationship with the Ko tournament and is determined to win it back.

It has been 40 years since the last time the Gabarra left and Mallorca will try to keep it docked. Javier Aguirre’s men, a brave and well-made team, earned the right to dream of the second Cup in their history, despite the fact that in the League they are fighting for permanence. The vermillions barely concede behind and have quality and goals, in search of the story of the humble one who won the Cup.

Welcome to the story of the Cup final.
