Athletic Bilbao vs Eibar Preview

 

Athletic Bilbao vs Eibar

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – San Mamés

Date: 26th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This is a Basque derby and Eibar will be heading to Saint Mames with a desire to win their first ever Basque derby there.

A win would add another memorable episode to their already impressive stint in the La Liga since they got promoted against all odds.

They both exited the Copa del Rey early in the season and that has helped them get their league season in order with Eibar going on to win 6 of their last 9 games, losing just 1 and taking themselves to just within 1 point of a European place.

They are currently 8th in the league table.

Bilbao could go 7th with a home win here and that would be a major turnaround considering the fact that they were already being considered relegation candidates at some point last year.

They head into this game with no loss in 9 games and their defence has been in top form conceding just 4 goals in those games.

They have kept clean sheets in 67% of their home games this season and have conceded less than a goal per game at home all season.
