Bilbao to show respect

Athletic Bilbao midfielder Oscar de Marcos insists his side will show giantkillers Mirandes total respect on Tuesday night as the two clubs battle at San Mames for a place in the Copa del Rey final.

Athletic, whose record of 23 Copa titles is second only to Barcelona (25), are favourites heading into the semi-final second leg after earning a 2-1 lead from last week's first meeting at Mirandes' Anduva stadium.

However, De Marcos knows they can take nothing for granted against the third-tier side, who have already knocked out top-flight sides Villarreal, Espanyol and Racing Santander on their fairytale run to the last four.

De Marcos said in Marca: "We need to have a lot of respect because Mirandes have earned it. They've knocked out three Primera Division clubs and that hasn't been by luck or accident.

"The (first leg) result is good, but we need to wait and see what happens tomorrow. We know that it will be difficult and, because of that, we are going to put all our effort into it.''

De Marcos also hopes his side's fans can help send Athletic through to the final, recalling the semi-final against Sevilla in 2009 when the Basque side overturned a 2-1 first leg deficit with a 3-0 home win to progress through to the final on aggregate.

He added: "They have to support and help us because we are strong at San Mames thanks to them.

"Even though Mirandes are a Segunda B side, we need the support of the fans, like in that semi-final against Sevilla.''

If Athletic do get through then they could face a repeat of that 2009 final against Barcelona, which they lost 4-1, as Pep Guardiola's men are in the other semi-final against Valencia.

That match is tied at 1-1 going into Wednesday's second leg at the Nou Camp, where Barca have been in stunning form this season and averaging around four goals per game.

Valencia have had a day less to prepare for the fixture after playing out a goalless draw with Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon last night, 24 hours after Barca beat Real Sociedad 2-1, but coach Unai Emery insists his side will be up for the cup clash nevertheless.

"We would've like more rest, but it's not to be. We are going to give it everything in the cup and we are going there highly motivated,'' said Emery.
