With Gaizka Garitano’s charges dominating head-to-head encounters on this ground, the odds are strictly against the visitors as they stand very little chances of sculpting a win.

Athletic Bilbao v Valladolid Team News

Despite beginning the season on a rampage, the hosts have since fallen off the pace, remaining winless in their last three encounters. With Real Valladolid on the road to San Mames on Sunday evening, Bilbao will be presented with a golden opportunity to return back to winning ways.

The form at Bilbao has since dipped largely, beginning with a draw against Leganes. The fans will be forgiven for thinking that was just a one-off situation, with the team suffering two other losses on the spin.

Close margins 1-0 defeats to Valencia and Celta Vigo have suddenly placed so much pressure on head coach Gaizka Garitano. The manager must now return to the drawing board to try to figure out where his team’s problems lie.

Real Valladolid’s position on the La Liga standings might be deceiving but they have been on top form in recent weeks. They are currently unbeaten in their last three games, most notably a hard-fought draw against Atletico Madrid on home soil.

However, it should be pointed out that their overall record this season has been largely disappointing, managing just two wins so far. Also, they have been on the wrong end of humbling defeats twice already on their trips.

When it comes to head-to-head encounters, Bilbao have been totally rampant and the advantage lies easily within their court. The visitors have not been coping well on their visits to San Mames, having lost six of their last seven games on this ground. The last time they celebrated victory against this opposition on this ground came as far back as 2004.

Furthermore, despite the dip in form that the hosts have experienced in recent weeks, they have managed clean sheets in three of their last four clashes at the San Mames. With home advantage on their side, Athletic Bilbao should have this game in the bag.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Athletic Bilbao: Gorka Guruzeta, Yuri.

Valladolid: Rubén Alcaraz, Javi Sanchez, Sandro Ramírez.
