Athletic Bilbao take on the visitors Dinamo Bucuresti at “San Mames” in the second-leg clash of the Qualification semi-final of the UEFA Europa League 2017/2018. The game will be played in Bilbao on Thursday, August 3rd. The first-leg match finished with 1:1 draw.
There is still a plenty of time left by the start of a new football season in Spain, thus, the Basques had to prepare themselves to the Eurocups battles through the friendlies. This summer Athletic Bilbao participated in six encounters recording three victories, one draw and two defeats in them. In regard to their first match against the Romanians, the Spaniards had advantage, but only justified last season’s statistics: Athletic Bilbao had won on the road extremely rarely.

In 2016/2017 season Dinamo Bucuresti gained the Romanian Cup and occupied the third place in the Romanian Liga 1 standings. In summer “Cainii rosii” actively played friendly clashes: the side conducted six games resulting in two triumphs and four losses. The new football season has started already in Romania and the team picked up six points with four goals for and one goal against in three matched of the elite division. In the UEFA Europa League clash “Dinamovistii” performed on equal with the Spaniards. Concerning Dinamo Bucuresti’s results at away fields, in 2017 the side got six wins, three draws and two defeats in 11 encounters.
It is obvious that the Basques are the favourites of the home battle, in front of their supporters Athletic Bilbao are quite able to beat any team of the world. I presume that the Spaniards will succeed this time as well, however, it is going to be a low scoring fight.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
