Culinary delights, magical music & fabulous football come together in eighth stop on LaLiga Santander Experience trail

Celebrity chef Akis Petretzikis and influential music analyst Sebastian Cotofana, who are set to fly in from Greece and Romania courtesy of COSMOTE TV and Digi Sport, will take centre stage in a once-in-a-lifetime getaway that'll be rounded off with the eagerly anticipated showdown between Athletic Club and FC Barcelona.

Having served up seven successful instalments since the start of the season, this weekend sees the LaLiga Santander Experience roadshow hit Bilbao. The inspiring San Mames roar, Iñaki Williams' electric pace, Iker Muniain's eye for goal and the chance to see Lionel Messi strut his stuff are just a few of the major attractions in this latest edition of the programme. However, the LaLiga Santander Experience isn't just all about football.

On this occasion, cuisine and music will also come to the fore. Greek chef Akis Petretzikis is set to bring some culinary flair as he represents LaLiga's official broadcaster in Greece, COSMOTE TV, whilst journalist Georgios Pouliopoulos is also part of the travelling party. Meanwhile, music expert Sebastian Cotofana and reporter Ionut Angheluta will be flying the flag for LaLiga's official rights-holder in Romania, Digi Sport.

The quartet will share in this weekend extravaganza with a special guest, with former professional footballer and the winner of the fifth edition of Spain's MasterChef, Jorge Brazalez Lopez, set to join the group. The visitors are poised to be treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of Athletic's iconic stadium, whilst they'll also put their skills to the test in a range of fun challenges, before taking their places in the stands to lap up all the action as Los Leones and Barcelona go head-to-head.
