    The 6th placed Athletic Bilbao were handed a 3-2 defeat away at Real Betis last weekend in La Liga which ended a promising 5-match sequence without a defeat in the Spanish top flight.

    They have a good opportunity to redeem themselves on Saturday evening when they entertain lowly Eibar at their San Mamés Barria.

    Although they lost last time out in La Liga, Athletic Bilbao will still remain confident as they head back to more familiar surroundings for this clash especially as they’d won 4 of their last 5 matches prior to the loss, and all three points here could send the hosts up into the top four of La Liga.

    Plenty of incentive then for Gaizka Garitano’s boys as they look to rekindle the recent form which saw Athletic Bilbao pick up wins against Espanyol, Levante, Osasuna and Granada as well as a point away from home at Villarreal.

    On home turf, Athletic Bilbao have won 6 of their 8 matches to date this term and have won their last 3 home matches on the trot with the likes of Williams and Muniain (4 goals apiece) looking the most likely up front.

    Onto Eibar and the visitors find themselves wallowing in the lower regions of the Spanish top flight following 4 defeats on the trot in La Liga which has left them in 16th place and just 2 points above the bottom three prior to this weekend’s action.

    Losses to Real Madrid 4-0, Deportivo Alaves 2-0, Real Sociedad 4-1 and Getafe 1-0 mean that Eibar have conceded 11 goals and scored just 1 in reply during this recent disastrous spell of games, and have failed to score in 3 of these 4 losses too.

    With just 2 wins out of their last 9 matches overall in the Spanish top flight which were wins against Villarreal and Leganes, both of whom occupy positions in the bottom half of La Liga, a trip to face high-flying Athletic Bilbao looks it can only go one way, and that’s to the hosts.

    Throw in just 2 away wins for Eibar out of their last 23 matches on their travels in La Liga and it all seems to add up in Athletic Bilbao’s favour for this upcoming clash at the San Mamés Barria.
