Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao
Primera Division
Date: 1st October 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mestalla.

Valencia will host Athletic Bilbao in one of the most interesting fixtures of the Matchday No 7 in Primera Division on Sunday evening at Estadio de Mestalla.

Valencia

Los Che have been super inspired in the final third in the recent weeks as they will come into the clash with the Basques on the back of netting eight goals in consecutive wins over Malaga and Real Sociedad.

Marcelino Garcia has been doing a phenomenal job at the start of the season with the team which has been struggling a lot throughout the entire campaign in the last term of La Liga.

Valencia hold the fourth position after opening six rounds and they are looking to continue their fine displays at Mestalla where they are yet to concede a goal after three opening games (two wins and a draw with Atletico Madrid)

Athletic Bilbao

It’s time for the alarm bells to ring in the Basque county since Athletic Bilbao started to miss their long-term manager Ernesto Valverde.

Jose Angel Ziganda’s reign at San Mames Barria is on thin ice after a poor streak of three losses and a draw in last four matches in all competitions.

The latest of the failures for Los Leones came on Thursday evening when they suffered an embarrassing 0-1 defeat to Zorya at San Mames.

Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao: Head to head

Valencia lead the head to head tie by seven wins ahead of their 51st encounter with Bilbao.

It is interesting to note that five of last six H2H meetings between the two sides saw home teams snatching victories.
