Athletic Bilbao vs Rangers

Athletic Bilbao scraped past Birmingham in the first round and then took a tour of Europe, smashing Sampdoria 5-3 before beating Union Berlin 3-1 to qualify. They are the last Spanish team left in the tournament.

Rangers meanwhile beat Brighton in their first game despite a late rally from the South East side. They then dispatched Faroe Islands side B36 before an impressive 2-0 over Aston Villa. They are one of two Scottish sides left in the draw and must fancy their chances of a quarter final slot.

The match will take place in Canada, where Glen will play the game in his Subbuteo room. If you haven’t seen it, he has thousands of Subbuteo teams and it’s pretty spectacular.



West Ham vs Club Independiente

West Ham have been impressive in the Subbuteo Cup 2020. After surviving a scare at Glentoran they beat Bradford City comfortably before beating Borussia Monchengladbach in extra time.

They now face a tougher test against the Argentinian side, who have beaten Guadalajara, Leicester and West Brom. The only South American side in the tournament will be confident of another win here.


Burnley vs Wycombe Wanderers

Burnley have been incredible in their cup run so far after scoring a late winner against Scottish side Partick Thistle in the first round. They then comfortably beat Leeds 3-0 before demolishing Juventus 5-1 with four second half goals.

Wycombe are the cupset kings, knocking out Arsenal, Nottingham Forest and Wolves so far. Is another one on the cards? Dale will be doing this one.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Aberdeen

Sheffield Wednesday have not faced tough competition yet. After beating non league Garstang, they then scraped past Sunderland on penalties before beating Tranmere Rovers.

They now face tournament favourite Aberdeen, who beat Manchester United 2-0 then beat Parma by the same score before a clinical display saw them smash Racing de Santander 6-1 after a second half blitz.

Italian player Gabriele will be hosting this one.
