The Athletic Bilbao vs. Eibar match will be played on Friday, January 26, at the San Mames Barria Stadium, Bilbao. This is the first match of La Liga round 21. Athletic Bilbao is currently 12th on the table with 26 points, while Eibar is 8th on the table with 28 points at the moment.
These teams have played nine times against each other in the 21st century. Athletic Bilbao recorded five victories, Eibar had only one win, while three matches ended in a draw. In seven out of those nine games we saw under 2.5 goals, but in January 2016 the result was 5:2 for Athletic Bilbao.
Athletic Bilbao is extremely unhappy with the season so far. However, they stabilized their form and they are slowly climbing up the table. Currently, they are six points behind sixth-placed Sevilla, and they will try to qualify for the next season edition of Europa League. In their last league game, they led against Getafe twice, but the match ended 2:2. Latest matches: Athletic Bilbao

Eibar is one of the smallest teams in the league, but they are easily avoiding relegation for the couple of seasons already. Their fighting spirit and excellent team composition led them to the battle for the place which leads to European competition, which would be a tremendous success for the club. However, they will probably be happy with a mid-table finish, and they will be defensive in the upcoming game against Athletic Bilbao.
