Athletic Bilbao Vs Eibar Match on March 20, 2021
As Athletic Bilbao welcomes current 18th- placed Eibar to the San Mamés, they will be looking for a win. They have shown significant improvement under Coach Marcelino. Overall, recording 11 defeats, 9 wins, and 6 draws so far. They have gathered 33 points and are in 8th position on the log.
The new coach has brought with him a more positive set of results, only marred in recent times by a loss to Atletico Madrid, a game where Los Leones were quite impressive, even in defeat. The only other loss the Brazilian coach has suffered was against an in-form Barcelona team since he took office in January 2021. The headman also has a Supercopa de Espana under his belt, beating the Barca team in the finals.
Bilbao also boasts an average of 2.0 goals and 1.5 points per game in their last eight (8) games and won’t mind pushing these stats in their clash with their more lowly placed adversaries. Alex Berenguer, Iñaki Williams, and Iker Muniain will want to improve their goal tally in the upcoming game. SO Eibar has lost 12, won 4, and drawn 10 of their 26 league games, sitting two places away from the bottom of La Liga. Team Gaffer, Alvaro Ceverix, who hasn’t been having a rosy time, may be forced to face Bilbao without the services of two of their defensive players, Pedro Bigas and Roberto Correa.
They have been winless in their last ten (10) games, currently struggling in their relegation battles in games against fellow bottom-half teams. Their goal per game average is below 1, and they have conceded as much as 26 goals this season.
