The ATH vs RS match preview –
In La Liga two teams who are struggling to get to the top half of the table battle each other as Athletic Bilbao play hosts to Real Sociedad.
Athletic Bilbao will be looking to get a win in five games via this upcoming fixture. It has been a tough task for the player to perform on the pitch. Even though they are good enough to play in Europe, Athletic Bilbao has been unable to do anything significant in their own domestic league. Coach Eduardo Berizzo needs to do something to freshen things up for the players. Maybe a formation change is required to unlock the potential of this team.
Similarly, Real Sociedad are not going as strong as they would’ve liked. After having a decent start to the season, the team is having a difficult time winning games. They too have an equally strong squad, capable of beating most of the teams in Spain, but for some reason, the luck hasn’t been on their side. Real Sociedad has a pattern of going through such patches, and that will help them be calm in the storm.

Players to look out for-

Real Sociedad forward Jose has been the leading goal-scorer for the team this season. Even though the team hasn’t been able to support him when it comes to sharing the burden, he is still expected to pull through and make his presence felt on the pitch.
- Raul Garcia
The Spanish midfielder has been the talisman for Atheltic Bilbao this season. Not only has he created goals but also scored one. His influence on the pitch is pivotal to the success of his team.
Gambling India Info Match Prediction Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad –
Neither team has been impressive lately, and we expect this game to be a lacklustre draw.
ATH vs RS Dream 11 Team Predictions-
This game is going to be a boring draw. To protect ourselves from having a top-heavy team, we will rather choose players who are going to do well defensively. The lone striker Willian Jose is the only player who has a real chance of scoring a goal.
Inaki Williams might be rested in this game, but if he does play, this particular team will have him. Still the approach of having a defensive team is taken as we believe safeguarding against a 0-0 draw is better than being over dependant on strikers to score the goals.
