In an exciting La Liga matchup, Athletic Bilbao is set to host Las Palmas at the iconic San Mam├ęs Barria. With both teams looking to secure crucial points as the season progresses, this game promises to be a thrilling encounter. Athletic Bilbao, currently sitting at 5th in the league table, will aim to capitalize on their home advantage and recent form to climb higher. Las Palmas, positioned at 9th, will be eager to cause an upset and improve their standing. The stage is set for a captivating match in Bilbao.

Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao has shown impressive form this season, with a strong record of 9 wins, 5 draws, and only 3 losses from 17 games played. Accumulating 32 points, they have established themselves as a formidable side in the top half of the table. Their goal difference of +14 is indicative of both a solid defense and a potent attack.

The team's recent performances have been consistent, with their last five games resulting in three wins and two draws. Notably, their last fixture saw them secure a convincing 2-0 victory over Atletico Madrid, underlining their capability to perform against top-tier opposition. Playing at home, where they have the support of their passionate fans at San Mam├ęs Barria, Athletic Bilbao will be confident in extending their positive run.

Historically against Las Palmas, they have had a mixed record with one win, two draws, and two losses. However, with the advantage of playing on home turf this time around, they will be looking to improve upon this record.

Las Palmas

Las Palmas enters this match in a respectable 9th place in the league standings with 25 points from 17 games. Their season has been marked by seven wins, four draws, and six losses. With a goal difference of +1, they have demonstrated an ability to edge out tight games but will need to be at their best defensively against an Athletic Bilbao side that has been scoring freely.

The team's form leading up to this match has been somewhat varied; their last five games have seen them win twice, draw twice, and lose once. In their most recent match, they played out a 1-1 draw against Cadiz. While not playing at their home stadium Estadio de Gran Canaria may pose a challenge, Las Palmas has shown resilience throughout the season.

Against Athletic Bilbao specifically, Las Palmas has had better historical results with two wins, two draws, and one loss. They will undoubtedly draw confidence from these past encounters as they prepare to face off once more.
