Will Joao Cancelo participate in Barcelona and Bilbao’s King’s Cup match?

Joao Cancelo is doing his best to catch up with his Barcelona team’s match against Athletic Bilbao in the quarter-finals of the Spanish King’s Cup next Wednesday.

The Portuguese international has been absent from the Catalan club since the beginning of 2024, when he suffered a strain in the inner ligament of his left knee against Las Palmas.

According to what was reported by “Mundo Deportivo”, Cancelo wants to participate in the match against Athletic Bilbao, whatever the cost, while Xavi Hernandez refuses to risk it.

Cancelo’s position regarding his presence in the match will be decided on Tuesday, when he will undergo a medical test to evaluate his injury and whether he is still suffering from pain.

In the worst case scenario, even if the flying full-back misses the Bilbao match, he will be present next Saturday in the Spanish League match against Villarreal.

In the event that Cancelo is absent from the match with the Basque club, it is most likely that Xavi will continue to rely on Jules Kounde on the right front after his good performance against Real Betis.
