Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao team preview
The two sides will meet on the 6tht of December at 21:00 BST.
Getafe have a tough history with Athletic Bilbao, winning 9, drawing 12, and losing 11 of their last 32 La Liga games against Athletic Bilbao. Athletic Club don’t have the best history against Getafe either as they have drawn 5 and lost 2 of their last 8 La Liga games against Getafe. However, Athletic Club did win by a 5-1 scoreline when both sides last met in January 2021.
Fortunes are contrasting as Getafe seat 19th, one point from bottom in the relegation zone. Meanwhile, Athletic Club had a bright display despite losing in their last match against Real Madrid and currently sit 10th on the La Liga table.
Unfortunately, Athletic Club can’t seem to find a win from anywhere right now. However, that could change when they clash against relegation-threatened Getafe tonight. Therefore, this will be an epic clash as Getafe will want to get 3 points as they try to battle their way out of the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Athletic Club will see this as an opportunity to get the win that has eluded them for so long. The win is much needed, and if they fail to get it tonight, it might dampen moods in the Athletic Club locker room.
