Athletic Bilbao could win two Copa del Reys in two weeks after beating Levante 3-2 on aggregate on Thursday to book their place in this season's final against Barcelona.

Bilbao's 2-1 win after extra-time means they will face Barca on April 17 at La Cartuja, shortly after playing Basque rivals Real Sociedad in the postponed final of last season's tournament at the same venue on April 3.

It will be the fourth time this century that Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona have met in Spain's domestic cup final, with the Catalans winning all of those previous meetings in 2009, 2012 and 2015.
