Athletic Bilbao has given a lot to talk about this season. They come from a streak of 3 consecutive games in the Spanish League without knowing the wrong side, the last one was on November 4 when they were defeated by Girona FC by a score of 2-1, after which they have achieved one victory and two draws. In their last 5 games they have achieved a 60% performance, which speaks highly of the work that the team and their coach Ernesto Valverde have been doing. Their main weapon this season has been their striker, who, led by Iñaki Williams, has managed to score 24 goals so far this season. For this game, Athletic has its central defender Inigo Martinez in doubt. Athletic Club de Bilbao is in seventh position with a total of 26 points.
The Real Sociedad team has undoubtedly been the big surprise this season. They are currently on a 4 game unbeaten streak. The last time they fell was against Real Betis by a score of 0-2 on October 30. Its strongest point this season has been its defense, which has only allowed a total of 14 goals, that is, an average of 0.82 goals per game, one of the lowest averages of the season. The attack has also been a key element for the team, adding a total of 23 goals scored, where players like Brais Mendez, Alexander Sorloth and Takefusa Kubo have been their main scorers. Real Sociedad is third in La Liga with a total of 32 points.
There is no doubt that the great favorite to win the game is the Real Sociedad team, however, the Athletic Club team will not make it easy for them, since with a victory they could climb to fourth position in the standings.
