Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis Preview

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – San Mamés

Date: 5th May 2018

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

The fact that Betis will finish this season ahead of Athletic Bilbao has taken many La Liga followers by surprise.

What is even more shocking is that they could actually secure Champions League football if Valencia falters on the run-in.

Betis secured Europa League football last Monday when they defeated Malaga, and the 53,000 fans that came to watch that game showed their appreciation for what Quique Setién has done for them this season.

They have won seven of their last eight games, a record better than that of Barcelona and Real Madrid in the same period of time.

Athletic Bilbao have been underwhelming this season and they come into this game having collected just 8 points from their last 8 games with one point coming from their last four games.

In their last four home games, Bilbao have lost to Marseille, Levante and Deportivo La Coruna – their fans would be wishing this season can end now so the club can change their manager.

Athletic have a good record in this fixture with 4 wins from their last 5 games and 4 wins from the last 4 times they have hosted Betis.
