Match Preview

After a frustrating start to the season last weekend, will Athletic Club Bilbao claim victory this time around?

In Ernesto Valverde’s first game in charge of Athletic, his side could only draw 0-0 with Mallorca at San Mamés.

Even Mallorca head coach Javier Aguirre admitted his side were lucky to come away with a point as Athletic Club couldn’t convert any of their 23 shots on goal.

Scoring goals remains the biggest problem for the Lions, who have netted just 212 times since the start of the 2017/18 season.

That’s an average of 1.11 goals per game over a period of five seasons.

Meanwhile, Gennaro Gattuso made a winning start to life in charge of Valencia, with his side beating Girona 1-0 at Mestalla.

Carlos Soler’s penalty in first-half stoppage time was the difference, although Los Che held on for over half an hour after Eray Cömert was sent off.

Coincidentally, los Murciélagos also started last season winning 1-0 at home thanks to a kick from Soler, also finishing that one with ten men.

Valencia went on to finish ninth and, despite the continued sale of key players, better is expected with Gattuso now at the helm.

This one could go either way in San Mamés.
