Getafe v Athletic Bilbao Team News

It is to be the hosts' second consecutive league fixture on a Friday after they defeated Malaga 1-0 last week. And to be fair, Getafe, led by Pepe Bordalas, have returned stronger to life in the top-flight and over 19 games so far they have amassed 26 points (W7 D5 L7).

The visitors from Bilbao, three places and a point below El Gets in ninth, are on the course of a return to usual form following a largely unsuccessful start to the campaign. Nevertheless, the Lions head into the early clash on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run (W3 D5 L0).

However, Getafe's unprecedented success this season is mostly down to their great performance at the Alfonso Perez arena as 19 of the 26 points have been won there - the tally only bettered by Barcelona, Valencia and Sevilla, though. More eye-catching is that Los Azulones have edged five of the last six opponents they hosted (W5 D1) and managed to keep clean sheets in the previous four.

Despite performing just well at home, it's Athletic Bilbao who have run out winners at Getafe on each of the last three visits, although it was back in the 2012-13, 13-14 and 15-16 campaigns, the latter turning out to be a top-flight status-losing one.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Getafe: Vicente Guaita (Doubtful), Markel Bergara (Doubtful).

Athletic Bilbao: Iker Muniain, Óscar De Marcos, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Mikel Balenziaga.

Conclusion and Predictions:

Friday's game will also see these sides meet for the 26th clash, with Getafe managing seven wins to Bilbao's ten with eight draws.

And while Lions leading goalscorer Aritz Aduriz is on the eve of making his anniversary 350th appearance for the club, having already netted against 35 La Liga sides, Getafe's top scorer Angel Rodriguez will be keen to add a seventh goal to his name against a Athletic side after both were left out on the bench in their goalless stalemate on the opening day back in August.
