Athletic Bilbao – Statistics & Current Form

Athletic Bilbao is definitely a very special club in La Liga. But that is not only because it is a founding member of the highest Spanish league. What’s special about Athletic Bilbao is that the club only bet on players from the Basque Country.

This does not necessarily make the work for the coaches at this club easier, because the number of available players is very limited. Nevertheless, the club adheres to this tradition and is therefore very successful in terms of the possibilities.

In the last season, however, had in Los Leones in the initial phase, significant problems and that led to the dismissal of Eduardo Berizzo after the 14th matchday. As a successor, they decided for the Basque then for Gaizka Garitano, who led the team at least still on the eighth place in the table.

However, Bilbao should have been a little annoyed that they narrowly missed qualifying for Europe. Gaizka Garitano has been in charge of Athletic Bilbao’s 26-game spells throughout the season, with just six defeats overall. For the fans in the last season, especially the 2-1 defeat at the unloved neighbor Reals Sociedad was annoying.

“Everyone would have signed this league start, even if they had not signed a draw before the game against Getafe.” – Gaizka Garitano

In the current season, Athletic Bilbao made a dream start and celebrated a 1-0 home win against Barcelona at the start. The man of the evening was Aduriz, who after his substitution in the 88th minute just one minute later with a great Seitschneher made for the acclaimed winner. Athletic Bilbao had to play at Getafe last weekend.

There, the Los Leones were in the sixth minute with a goal by Raul Garcia 1-0 lead, but only six minutes later, Athletic Bilbao had already taken the equalizer. Then the lions could achieve no further hit and so it remained thanks to a decent defensive performance in a performance-based draw.

Before the derby against Real Sociedad, the coach has some battered players. It therefore remains to be seen if, for example, Inigo Cordoba and Oscar de Marcos will be operational again by Friday evening. The lions also hope for their immense home strength compared to Real Sociedad. After all, Athletic Bilbao has been unbeaten at home 15 times in a row.

Real Sociedad – Statistics & Current Form

Real Sociedad can look back on a weak last season. The team had great difficulties, especially in the first round under the coach Asier Garitano. This led to the dismissal of Garitano in December. Once again, La Real did much better in the wake of Imanol Alguacil.

Under the new trainer, the table went up significantly and at the end, despite the catastrophic start of the season, the ninth place in the table finally jumped out. In the season 2019/2020, the team from the Basque city of San Sebastian but wants to place significantly better.

Ideally, it should be enough for Real Sociedad to return to international business. For this, the club has strengthened considerably within its capabilities in the transfer market. For example, Real Sociedad paid around 20 million in transfer fees to Portu (Girona), Isak (Dortmund) and Sagnan (Lens).

In addition, the executives were able to get Martin Ödegaard from Real Madrid on loan to San Sebastian. The start of the season Real Sociedad has succeeded despite already two away games. On the first day of the match, La Real showed a good performance in the Champions League in Valencia and was able to draw a 1-1 draw from the Mestalla despite a late penalty penalty.

“It was a good pass from Portu, an easy goal. I am very happy.” – Ödegaard

Although Real Sociedad struggled on Mallorca last weekend, Ödegaard’s late strike gave them a tight away win. For particularly much enthusiasm should not worry the game plan with the Basques, because now you have to compete once again away. It comes to a derby at the damn home strong Athletic Bilbao.

Certainly, the coach knows that the Basque rival is already unbeaten 15 home games. It was Real Sociedad that Bilbao taught in October 2018 the last home defeat. In the upcoming derby between Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad brings a tip on an away win with up to 4.20 fairly high odds. Missing the coach in this particular game may be the ailing Sagnan, Rodrigues and Portu.
