Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad – Form, news, and probable lineups

The Basque derby is one of the biggest ones in Spain, so let's take a closer look at both teams ahead of it:

Athletic Bilbao

The Basque team has been in great form in the past month or so, both in the league and in the cup. The team has reached the semi-finals of Copa del Rey, although they failed to beat Valencia at home in the first leg that ended in a 1-1 draw. Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao has three wins, one draw, and two losses in the last six games in La Liga and they are currently eighth in the standings.

Athletic Bilbao remains without Ander Capa and Nico Williams, who are injured, while Oier Zarraga is out of the upcoming game through suspension. On the bright side, Inigo Martinez will be back in the lineup after serving a suspension of his own.

Athletic Bilbao predicted lineup:

Simon – De Marcos, Alvarez, Martinez, Berchiche – Berenguer, Vencedor, D. Garcia, Muniain – Williams, R. Garcia

Real Sociedad

It's been a while since Real Sociedad sat at the top of the standings, but the team finally seems to be over their long-lasting crisis. After all, Real Sociedad is undefeated in their last five La Liga matches. Furthermore, the team had a tough mid-week duel against Leipzig in Europa League and they managed to secure a draw before the second leg they'll play at home.

When it comes to team news, Real Sociedad has a few issues with injured players since Ander Barrenetxea, Nacho Monreal, and Adnan Januzaj are all out, while Carlos Fernandez is doubtful.

Real Sociedad predicted lineup:

Remiro – Gorosabel, Elustondo, Normand, Munoz – Merino, Silva, Zubimendi – Oyarzabal, Isak, Portu
