Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao Preview

Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Anoeta

Date: 28th April 2018

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

This game brings together two of La Liga’s biggest Basque sides who are fighting to see who will be the region’s top dog this season.

It has been an underwhelming campaign for both of these sides and a win for either side could be the only major achievement they can get with the season drawing to a close.

Athletic who have been the region’s pride for the past few years have been struggling this season.

They have been brilliant at times like in their 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu recently, however, they have also suffered from poor form, losing at home to relegation-threatened Levante and Deportivo La Coruna who both netted 3 goals each against them.

Real Sociedad’s former defender, Inigo Martinez will know he won’t be getting the warmest of welcomes in this game after moving across town in the last transfer window.

Sociedad’s defence has improved since he left which is a credit to their new manager.

Interim manager, Imanol Alguacil has done a great job at the helm, keeping 4 clean sheets in his 5 game in charge so far.

Prior to their shocking loss to Malaga last time out, Sociedad won 3 on the spin and that should give them confidence ahead of this game.
