On April 27, Estadio San Mamés (Bilbao) will host the match of the 31st round of the La Liga, in which Athletic will compete with Sevilla. The battle will start at 22:00 CET.
The club returned to cooperation with Valverde in the current season. This coach successfully worked with “the Basques”, and moved to Barcelona from there. Last summer, Ernesto was not employed, and he was willingly called again. Generally speaking, the team’s pace is unstable. Still, it achieves relatively good results. Only an extra-time goal helped Osasuna to overcome the team in the semi-finals of the Cope del Rey. The La Liga can be characterized by a strong start, but then there was a rather protracted decline. April was spent at a good level again. The representative of Bilbao limited itself with a goalless draw in the match against Getafe, but, nevertheless, both Espanyol and Real Sociedad were beaten after that. The battle with Almeria resulted in a confident victory – the opponent lost with a 2-1 score, achieving only a goal of prestige at the 90th+ minute of the game.
The team plays under the rule of the third mentor in an incomplete season. Lopetegui was replaced after a disastrous start, and Sampaoli did not make any impression during a half of a year, failing to provide sufficient and expected progress. It is noteworthy that Jorge reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League with “White Andalusia”, but this fact did not save the coach. Manchester United competed with the team, which was already headed by Mendilibar, who had become the successor of the Argentinean specialist. The Spanish club incredibly managed to get away from the defeat in England – the own goals of Malacia and Maguire really helped in that case. The battle at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán that was last Thursday unexpectedly became easy and bright – 3-0. The new mentor did his best in the Primera. It goes without saying that the team lost the home victory in the match against Celta, although it was leading with a 2-0 score. At the same time, it beat Cadiz and Valencia at the away arenas, finally removing the risk of relegation to the Segunda. However, Villarreal was also defeated in the previous round.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
