Athletic Bilbao vs Elche
Spanish La Liga
Date: 3 April 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: San Mames Barria (Bilbao).
Athletic Bilbao will be looking to boost up their spirits after winning just one of the previous five games in all competitions.
They should have a nice chance to do so on Sunday afternoon when bottom-half Elche come to visit San Mames Barria for the 30th round clash in La Liga.
The Basques will rely on their tremendous home form going into the tie since they are unbeaten in seven successive outings in all competitions at San Mames Barria.
Marcelino’s men have scored eight goals in the previous three matches in their own backyard. They have won two and drawn one in the process.
The lone draw came in the very previous round when Bilbao missed a huge number of chances in a 1-1 stalemate against Getafe.
They should maintain the fine attacking form here against Elche who tended to allow lots on chances on the road lately.
Elche have lost three of the last four league games. They generally play much better at home than on travels.
The team led by Francisco have a dismal away record of 3 wins, 3 draws, and 9 defeats in 15 league fixtures away from Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero.
Elche have shipped at least two goals in three of the previous four away outings in La Liga.
