Kick-off:
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar)
Prior to the campaign, we imagine Eibar’s board must have sat Jose Luis Mendilibar down in an interview to discuss the long-term goals of the club. They seem to be headed in the right direction, with an experienced manager to lead the way.

Even though they have not begun the new campaign in the finest fashion, Eibar still looked destined for greatness. They will be looking to pick form soon enough, starting with victory over tricky side Athletic Bilbao this weekend.

Eibar vs Athletic Bilbao Team News

Pundits have been very vocal about their contempt at Eibar’s style of play, reiterating that they are very lucky to still be plying their trade in the top echelon of Spanish football. With their rather boring football play, Los Armeros do not exactly excite fans.

Luis Mendilibar has hit back at critics claiming that he doesn’t care about how results come about, as long as they are favorable ones. For those criticizing Mourinho’s playing tactics, you may just cut the Portuguese some slack after watching Eibar play.

Clinching fourteenth-spot on the log, Eibar managed to escape relegation last season with 42 points from 38 games. Indeed, they were inches away from the drop-zone and could easy have lost their top-flight status with few more bad results.

Beginning the 2020/21 domestic season with a home game against Celta Vigo, the Gunsmiths put in a good shift to salvage a goalless draw. Despite suffering a numerical handicap, Eibar managed to frustrate Vigo’s attacking efforts throughout the match.

Following that decent result, they were condemned to a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of strong side Villarreal. Drawing first blood, the Gunsmiths were on the path to victory before a late rally from the Yellow Submarines sent Mendilibar’s charges sinking.

Once considered a top Spanish club, Athletic Bilbao have since dropped down the pecking order to become bottom-half candidates. They began the new season with a humbling defeat at the hands of Granada on the last matchday. 

This did not go down well with Bilbao’s supporters who are clamoring for some significant changes at the club this term. Their 11th-place finish last season was nothing to write home about, and must have left the club’s hierarchy devastated.

Now, a few signings have been made to bolster the squad as they target a return to continental football. If they are to make the cut for European football this time around, San Memes should never replicate the performance they put up in their previous game against Granada.

Despite their losing start, Bilbao are still one of the sides to keep an eye on this season. Surely, these lads cannot afford to lose this game as it could throw the club directly into panic mode.
