After eight games with four draws and three wins to their name to go with the one loss. They finished last season as the tenth placed team in La Liga. They were decent throughout the league and even caused some upsets along the way. They are playing against Villarreal on Sunday away. Athletic Club’s recent form has been quite ok, they have won three games in the last nine and have lost one match in the lead up to this game while also drawing another five games in the process.

Inaki Williams, Raul Garcia, Nico Williams and Villalibre combined in the frontline. Iker Muniain, Alex Berenguer, Dani Garcia and Vencedor are all young and a great bunch of midfield prodigies to have in your team and if they happen to put in performances of substance, then this Athletic Club team could be in for some real haunt. Spanish coach Marcelino needs to balance this team out and try to get the best out of them by allowing them to play freely and see what happens from there on.

They won their first game in about ten games in the last game against Elche which would be the best confidence booster going ahead into the high-octane clash against Athletic Club

Gerard Moreno, Paco Alcacer and Boulaye Dia combined with Danjuma, Pino and Raba form the attack line. If they happen to put in performances of substance like how did they did in the last game, then this Villarreal team could be in for some real haunt. Spanish coach Unai Emery needs to balance this team out and try to get the best out of them by allowing them to play freely and see what happens from there on.
