The ATH vs ESL match preview –
In a game played in the Spanish La Liga, Athletic Bilbao will be taking on Espanyol FC on Monday.
Athletic Bilbao are going through the most unusual season the club has seen in the recent years. Formations changing, players shuffling along with no attacking threat has been the agenda of the team since the season has started. Coach Eduardo Berizzo has made a lot of questionable calls this season and his job has been thought to in risk because of that. He needs to find the right balance in the team or else will be shown the door before 2018 ends.
On the other hand, Espanyol FC are only three points shy of being on top of the table. They are in a healthy mix of teams who are contesting for the top four spots in the La Liga standings. The team has positioned itself by playing smart football and being extremely consistent. Manager Rubi is getting a lot of plaudits for the way he has transformed the club since arriving and would be eyeing an even better side in the near future.
