Spanish champions Atletico Madrid take on last season’s Copa del Rey finalists Athletic Bilbao for a place in the Spanish Super Cup showpiece when they meet in Saudi Arabia on Thursday at 7pm (UK time).

Both clubs will contest the semi-final in Riyadh a day after Real Madrid clash with Clasico rivals Barcelona, so Diego Simeone and Marcelino will know what lies ahead when they converge on the King Fahd Stadium.

Atletico Madrid team news

Stefan Savic and Antoine Griezmann are Simeone’s only major injury concerns ahead of this clash, and with Atleti not playing until next Wednesday, there will certainly be a temptation from the club’s vociferous tactician to go full strength and potentially set up a clash with either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Atletico Madrid predicted XI: Oblak; Vrsaljko, Felipe, Hermoso, Lodi; Carrasco, De Paul, Koke, Lemar; Cunha, Felix.

Athletic Bilbao team news

Asier Villalibre and Yuri Berchiche have been out for a while now for Bilbao, and they have been recently joined on the treatment tables by Ander Capa, Unai Nunez and Unai Vencedor, the latter of whom came off injured against Alaves at the weekend after only four minutes, so his replacement on the day, Oier Zarraga, will likely deputise in his absence.

Athletic Bilbao predicted XI: Simon; De Marcos, Alvarez, Martinez, Balenziaga; Berenguer, Zarraga, Garica, Muniain; N Williams, I Williams.

Scoreline prediction: Atletico Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao
