Athletic
Bilbao

After
the successful travel to Moscow the Lions’ visit to Madrid wasn’t
so successful. Till 67th minute of the match the score was 0:0 but at
first Basques were upset by Kevin Gameiro and then Diego Costa.

The
defeat of Athletic
with the score 0:2 became for the team of José
Ángel Ziganda
the second in three last matches of the championship of Spain.

In
the current season of La Liga Athletic
had lost only in two home matches of La Ligui out of 11. However, the
number of victories isn’t large too– three. More than in half of
cases the matches ended with the draw result.

At
a group stage of the Europa League Athletic
suffered one defeat. What is surprising, this happened during the
home game against Ukrainian Zorya (0:1). Other eight last home
matches were won by the Lions.

Spartak

The
team from Moscow before the match against Basques came to Spain for
the 4th meeting. The choice of the place is clear – close to
return leg of the 1/16 finals of the Europa League. If the team has
no qualitative game drive we wish that there won’t be any problems
with the journey.

Fans
of the Russian team don’t wait for anything good. If at home during
the group stage of the Champions League Spartak has ruined Sevilla
(5:1) and took some points from Liverpool (1:1). In Spain Massimo
Carrera’s team was destroyed (1:2) and in England was humiliated
(0:7). And here the team began with the defeat at home arena.

The
fact that Spartak didn’t win any of the last 11 guest fights in Euro
cups, six of which were lost doesn’t please anyone.

Head-to-heads

At
the first meeting Spartak wasn’t bad but mistakes and silly
accidents led to the defeat with the score 1:3.

Match
prediction


Carrera’s
football players need to score at least three goals in Bilbao. We
believe that this will lead to a productive result of return leg. It
would be possible to doubt but the defense of the Russian team is
depleted by Georgi Dzhikiya’s loss.
