The Copa Del Rey final will be contested between Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad, both from the Basque region of Spain.

Real Sociedad booked their place first in the Copa Del Rey final. They beat Mirandes 3-1 on aggregate.

Now Athletic Bilbao has beaten Granada on away goals to join their basque rivals.

After his side victory, Athletic Bilbao boss Gaizka Garitano spoke to El Chiringuito TV. He was not only thrilled to have made the final, but also the significance of who the opponents will be.

He said:

“It is going to be a beautiful final, a beautiful Basque final.”

Bilbao was last in the final back in 2015, but Sociedad has not reached the last round for 32 years.

If you go back even further, the last time the two Basque teams contested a final between them is way back in 1910.
