In another fixture filled with fraught promises, Athletic Bilbao meet head-on with Almeria this weekend and it looks like we may be in for another thrilling encounter. Having returned from international break, Ernesto Valverde’s bulldozing squad may be in for anoher beautiful evening. However, regardless of the intimidating girth of the opposition, The Rojiblancos would in turn gird their loins in a bid to prevent the home team from a glorious weekend, even as the home team set thier sights on the third position.
Athletico Bilbao (4th)
A stockpile of 13 points from 6 games puts Ernesto Valverde’s side in a very good spot as they roar into the weeked with a catalogue of twelve (12) goals and 3 games with no goals conceded.
A few players have had their mettle tested and lived up to the hype. An example is the blooming Nico Williams, who just earned his call-up to the Spain National team, under the tutelage of the 58-year-old manager.
Athletico Bilbao are more than capable to make this an easy win, especially with the presence of maestros like Muniain, siblings Inaki and Nico WIlliams, and Oscar de Marcos.We have seen the hosts snatch a win , lose points and share spoils in the past weeks, however there is a big beam of poisitivity in the air for this game.
Los Leones are faced with injury challenges from five (5) players viz: Mikel Balenziaga (Sprained ankle), Yuri Berchiche (Foot Injury), Mikel Vesga (Muscle Injury), and Dani Vivian (Ankle Injury).

A measly 4 points gathered from the last 18 available puts Los Rojiblancos in a desperate position as they plummet towards the bottom three of the table if they fail to regain momentum. Having enjoyed the perks of promotion into the Liga Santander, they have failed to keep up appearences after a series of loses in the past weeks, before the international break.
However, they have managed to scavenge a win from Sevilla - who in no doubt are experiencing a rough patch, and a lousy draw from Elche. Losing to the Madridistas, Real Valladolid, Osasuna and Mallorca in the past weeks.
The side also struggle with 7 injuries viz: Carlos Mosquera (Sperained ankle) Leo Baptistao (Muscle injury) Cesar De la Hoz (Ankle injury) Alex Centelles (Ankle injury) Ivan Martos (Ligament Injury) Juanjo Neto (Ligament injury) Chumi (Muscle Injury).
