Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad Preview

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – San Mamés

Date: 5th October 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

These two teams will look to get back to winning ways as well as kickstart their season as they languish outside the top half of the table in these early stages.

Athletico Bilbao almost pulled off a stunning win as they led Barcelona by a single goal until late into the second half at the Camp Nou last weekend, before the Catalans finally scored an equalizer through El Munir in the 84th minute.

Despite that spirited effort they have largely had a poor season in La Liga so far.

The hosts have won just one of their league games this season and they are currently 15th in the league table after picking up 4 draws from their first 6 games.

Bilbao have scored 8 goals in those games but they have a serious problem shutting teams out and as a result they have already conceded 10 goals.

They were beaten 3-0 by Villarreal in their last home game and Real Sociedad will look to add to that however the visitors are not in good form either.

Sociedad are currently 13th in the league table after winning 2, drawing 2 and losing 3 of their 7 league games this season.

They were beaten 1-0 at home by Valencia at the weekend and that was the 3rd straight time they have failed to win a home game, and the 5th time they have failed to win in their last 6 matches.

The visitors have scored 9 goals in 7 games this season while at the same time conceding 10.

Having won on their last away day, Sociedad will look to get another 3 points from this game.
