Athletic Bilbao – Elche Preview: Team News, Possible Lineups, and Current Form

You can find all the latest info on both teams ahead of their duel here, including our predicted Athletic Bilbao vs Elche lineups:

Athletic Bilbao

The Basque team is having a solid season, although they are likely end it without securing a spot in the European competitions for next season since they are currently eight in the league and six points behind Real Betis who is sixth. They were also eliminated in Copa del Rey semi-finals, which was probably their best chance to secure continental football.

Meanwhile, Ander Herrera, Dani Garcia, and Jon Morcillo are out with injuries at the moment, while Aitor Paredes and Dani Vivian are questionable.

Athletic Bilbao Predicted Lineup:

Simon – De Marcos, Yeray, Martinez, Berchiche – Sancet, Zarraga – N. Williams, Munain, Berenguer – I. Williams

Elche

With just one loss in the last five games, along with two wins and two draws, Elche has been in solid form recently. In fact, that is their best stretch of results for the entire season. Unfortunately for them, it's all too little too late since the team has been relegated already after spending almost the entire season in the last place in the standings.

When it comes to team news, Jose Angle Carmona remains on the sidelines with an injury, while Diego Gonzalez, Omar Mascarell and Helibelton Palacios are also doubtful.

Elche Predicted Lineup:

Badia – Morente, Magallan, Bigas, Clerc, Blanco – Gumbau, Donald, Fidel – Nteka, Boye

Since we can see the home team winning this game, our player to watch comes from Athletic Bilbao side team and it is Inaki Williams, the older Williams brother.

The experienced striker scored ten goals in La Liga this season and also added three assists to his tally, so Elche will have to keep a close eye on Williams in this duel.
