- Athletic Bilbao may have lost four of the last five La Liga (LL) H2H Basque derbies (W1, L4), but they still edge the overall historical top-flight record over Real Sociedad (W59, D37, L50). However, they’ve also won just one of their last six LL games (W1, D3, L2), and can pin some of the blame on slow starts as they’ve failed to score before HT in 11 of 15 LL fixtures this term.
- Home form is encouraging though, with mid-table Athletic winning four of their last five LL home games (W4, L1), three of which came ‘to nil’. However in a similar fashion to their overall form, four of Athletic’s six LL home games this season were goalless at HT.
- Despite starting this match in LL’s top five, Sociedad have picked up only three points across their last six games (D3, L3), and have lost their previous three. This sequence saw Sociedad drop points in three matches after scoring first (D1, L2) which is in sharp contrast to their corresponding record in the previous matches (W7).
- A distinct drop in defensive standards has played a part, as Sociedad have conceded eight goals across their last six LL games after letting in just four in their first ten. As a result, the visitors are winless in three LL road trips (D1, L2), including two consecutive losses that came via a 2-1 scoreline after they netted the opener.
- Players to watch: Athletic’s Iñaki Williams has scored four goals against Sociedad – which is his joint personal-best against one team – and netted his team’s first goal in the previous two H2Hs. For the visitors, Willian José has scored all three of his LL goals this term on the road.
- Hot stat: Athletic are unbeaten in their last five LL home games against Basque teams (W3, D2), although Sociedad have won three of their last six such away games (W3, D1, L2).
