Athletic Club host Cádiz in Bilbao at San Mamés this evening in the 20th round of La Liga.
Los Leones will be hoping to bounce back after suffering a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Celta Vigo in Galicia last Sunday. Sitting six points below Real Betis, who are occupying the final spot for Europe, it feels as though Athletic Bilbao must win this game if they want to stay in the race to play in a continental competition next season.
Ernesto Valverde is not expected to make many changes to the side that played last week. Dani García and Ander Herrera will most likely make way for Oihan Sancet and Mikel Vesga in midfield.
Predicted Athletic Club lineup against Cádiz
AS predict that Valverde will field the following starting XI against Cádiz: Unai Simón – Óscar de Marcos, Yeray Álvarez, Daniel Vivian, Yuri Berchiche – Oihan Sancet, Mikel Vesga, Iker Muniain – Nico Williams, Gorka Guruzeta, Álex Berenguer.
The match is set to kick off at 9 pm local time.
