Athletic Bilbao – Espanyol

Athletic Bilbao meets Espanyol in the first match of the 12th round of La Liga, Spain. Both teams are neighbours in the standings. Athletic Bilbao takes the 11th position with 12 points, while Espanyol are 12th with a point less. The match will be played at the stadium "San Mames Barria" this Friday.

Athletic Bilbao are in better shape than his rival. "Lions" are unbeaten for four consecutive rounds in the Primera and even managed to win two of them. Unlike for example, at the Champions League the team have no win and their only point gained leaves them without a chance of ranking forward. In the last round of Primera, Athletic had a dangerous rival in the face of Valencia, but eventually meeting not determine the winner and both teams shared the point after a goalless draw.
Against Espanyol, Ernesto Valverde will not be able to rely once again on its first striker Aduriz and the defender Iraola. Markel Susaeta and Iker Muniain missed the game against Valencia, but have already recovered and will be online.

Espanyol is in a series of four consecutive meetings without a win. It looks very difficult for them when they play away from home; where there is still no single win. In the last round against Villarreal escaped with a large dose of luck, having managed to catch up in the extra time given by the judge. Coach Sergio Gonzalez definitely has problems with his team. He tried to make changes in the composition, but never came to a positive result. Anyway, against Athletic Bilbao all players will be online including the defender Hector Moreno and his colleague Alvaro Gonzalez.

Athletic Bilbao rightly defined as the favorite by bookmakers and their victory comes with coefficient at 1.75. For Espanyol is 4.80 and the equality is estimated at 3.50.
