Preview

Athletic Club and AZ meet at San Mamés Barria, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage). Athletic Club registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis Athletic Club

The home team is currently in the 1st position, with 12 points won, after 4 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against Partizan by (5‑1). In the last round, they have won an away match against Augsburg by (2‑3). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 20 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 31 goals scored and 12 conceded. They come to this match after a home draw against Málaga by (0‑0). Athletic Club registers 4 wins in the last 4 home matches for the UEFA Europa League.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 wins in the last home matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 13 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (16'‑30').

After an irregular season start, Athletic Bilbao are going through their best moment in the season and haven’t suffered any goals in the last 3 matches. They have already confirmed access to the next stage, as well as the 1st position in Group L. In this match coach Ernesto Valverde will have to deal with the absence of Ibai Gómez, Iñigo Lekue and Muniain, who are injured.

Confirmed Lineup: Iago Herrerín, Saborit, Bóveda, Elustondo, Gurpegi, Mikel Rico, Mikel San José, Susaeta, Eraso, Sabin Merino, Kike Sola.

Analysis AZ

The away team is currently in the 4th position, with 3 points won, after 1 win and 4 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Augsburg by (4‑1). In the last round, they have lost a home match against Partizan by (1‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 31 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 17 conceded. In their last match, for the Eredivisie, they got a home loss against ADO Den Haag by (0‑1). Their last away match was for the Eredivisie and ended in a loss by (3‑0) against PSV. In the last 4 UEFA Europa League away matches AZ has a record of 1 win and 3 losses. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 9 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 24 of the last 26 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 18 out of 26 have ended with Over 2,5 goals.

Unlike last season, in which AZ finish 3rd in the Eredivisie, the away team isn’t doing so well this season, so they come to this match with no chances of qualifying for the next stage. The only match in which they conquered any points was precisely against Bilbao, in the 2-1 home win in the previous match between these two teams. Coach John van den Brom should then try to end this group stage with a positive result, but he will have to deal with the absence of Lewis, Haps and van der Linden.

Confirmed Lineup: Gino Coutinho, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Derrick Luckassen, Thomas Ouwejan, Mattias Johansson, Thom Haye, Joris van Overeem, Celso Ortiz, Ben Rienstra, Guus Hupperts, Vincent Janssen.
