I will make this brief, anything other than a home win, would be a major surprise to me.
Espanol have qualified for the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup and will target the rest of their season around those games. They will rest several players today after the very tough trip to Lisbon on Thursday, to play Benfica and no doubt a mini celebration on the journey home.
Their coach Ernesto Valverde, had two, pretty successful years at Bilbao and no doubt, still has a few friends there. As the hosts have just moved out of the bottom 3 and face Seville and Real Madrid next, I am not sure that he will want to be remembered as the man who helped in their relegation. Home win.
5 points Athletic Bilbao -1/4 ball 1.81 asian line. Result 2-1 + 4.05 pts
