Athletic Bilbao hosts Leganes in round 37 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Thursday, July 16th at Estadio San Mamés (Bilbao)
Athletic Bilbao still has a chance to break into European cups. Only three points separate it from the sixth place providing a ticket to the Europa League. Some rounds ago, the Basques made a present to the upcoming rival, having beaten Mallorca that also wages the struggle for a place in LaLiga for next season.

Currently, Leganes leads the trio of outsiders. The team makes every effort to leave it. In the last three rounds, it managed to score 7 points by beating Espanyol and Valencia and gaining a draw with Eibar. There are four points to the saving 17th line, but Leganes will have to play only two more matches in the championship.
Both teams are super-motivated, and both did their best in the last matches. However, the two most important aspects are on the side of Athletic. It is the sixth team in terms of home games, while Leganes is penultimate in statistics of away matches. And don’t forget about the difference in the level of lineups. The quality of the Basques’ game is much higher than that of the Pepineros. Moreover, Leganes cannot count on all of the main defenders. Omeruo played 23 matches, Rodriguez appeared in 26 matches, and Bustinza took part in 32 matches, but all of them are injured. Avaziem (26 games) and Silva (32 matches) will miss the match because of disqualifications. If we look at the last four head-to-head meetings, the Basques won three times, and one game ended in a draw. Given all the circumstances, it is quite possible to expect another victory of Athletic Bilbao.
Prediction for the match: Athletic Bilbao to win
