Espanyol vs. Athletic Bilbao match will be played on Monday, November 5, at the RCDE Stadium, Barcelona. After ten La Liga games played, Espanyol is 5th on the table with 18 points, while Athletic Bilbao is 16th at the table with only 10 points at the moment.


  • Espanyol was defeated only once in their last six games in all competitions. That defeat came in this week's match in Copa del Rey against Cadiz. The result was 2:1. Espanyol is in a series of four matches without a defeat in La Liga.
  • Athletic Bilbao is in a series of nine games without a win in all competitions! Their last three matches ended in a draw. In four out of their last five games we saw under 2.5 goals.


In their previous ten meetings, Espanyol recorded three victories, Athletic Bilbao had four wins, while three matches ended in a draw. In their last four games we saw under 2.5 goals.


Espanyol is performing much better than expected at the start of the season. They haven't been in top five for years and it would be amazing if they keep performing like this and qualify for Europa League at the end of the season. Of course, that is easier said than done, with 28 matches to go in La Liga anything can happen. Espanyol will face Sevilla and Barcelona in the upcoming month and it is very important for them to beat Athletic Bilbao to keep their position near the top of the table.

Athletic Bilbao has numerous problems from the start of the season. They are very near relegation zone, which nobody expected. Bilbao was never relegated, but they will have to play much better in order to avoid finishing at the bottom.
