Athletic Bilbao has been on a winless streak for their past five games and will attempt to end their run of poor form in a La Liga match against Real Valladolid on Friday.

In their previous match, they drew against the bottom team, Elche.

Real Valladolid has performed impressively at home this season, having earned 20 points from 12 games. They will be facing an Athletic team that has only collected 13 points from their 12 away games. Having previously defeated Real Valladolid 3-0 at home in November, Athletic will be keen to achieve a league double over their opponents.
Although Athletic has only lost one of their last five top-flight games against Real Valladolid, they have been struggling with form lately, failing to win any of their last five games in all competitions. Apart from their upcoming La Liga fixtures against Real Valladolid and Getafe, they will also play against Osasuna in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final at home.
