Are Athletic Bilbao destined to ever lift the Copa del Rey trophy again? The 23-time winners – only Barcelona are more successful in Spain's premier cup competition – last emerged triumphant in 1984 and despite reaching the final on six occasions in the interceding four decades, los Leones have never tasted glory. The Basques knocked out Barça and Atletico Madrid en route to the final, brothers Iñaki and Nico Williams scoring in a 3-0 semi-final rout of the Colchoneros. 

Mallorca are six points clear of the relegation zone in La Liga but they have reserved their best form for the Copa del Rey, beating high-flying Girona at San Moix in the quarter-finals, then disposing of Athletic's Basque rivals Real Sociedad in a semi-final penalty shootout. Regular cup goalkeeper Dominik Greif was the hero in saving Mikel Oyarzabal's spot-kick and it seems the Slovakian will keep his place after keeping a clean sheet last weekend against Valencia.

Can the 23-time winners Athletic end 40 years of hurt? Read on as we explain all the ways to watch an Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca live stream today where you are.
