Athletic Bilbao is having a strong season sitting in fourth place in the Spanish Primera Division, La Liga, table. They’re just one point ahead of fifth place and only two points ahead of sixth place. Athletic Bilbao will be looking for a win to stay ahead of those clubs right behind them when Almeria comes to town.
Bilbao is coming off two losses, but club captain Carlos Gurpegi says it was just luck.
“I think that (against Betis) we did everything possible to try and get a better result,” Gurpegi said, via ESPN FC. ”I think we are on the right path and just like at Anoeta, against Betis we tried to take the initiative, and although both were negative results, the team deserved to get a lot more from the games than we did.”
