Raul Garcia, the Bilbao midfielder, says the team needs to improve defensively as they look to qualify for a UEFA competition this season.
“We have to be aware that we have always been solid defensively and we have to be positive," Garcia said. 
"I believe we can move forward in terms of the important things we’re playing for. We always want to be in Europe because it’s an amazing and achievable goal.
"But we know that with the level of the other teams around there, it’s difficult."

The last meeting between Eibar and Bilbao in a league encounter was on 17 June 2020.

The encounter ended in a 2-2 draw and it was played at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa.
