Sunday, 29 October 2023
Kick-off is at 19h30 
Athletic Bilbao will square off with a struggling Valencia CF side in a Spanish La Liga match at the San Mames Barria on 29 October.
Current Form
The Lions suffered a 1-0 defeat to FC Barcelona away on 21 October and it was their second defeat in their last three matches in the league.
However, Bilbao are undefeated in their last four home matches in La Liga having registered three wins and one draw at the San Mames Barria.
Meanwhile, Valencia drew 1-1 with Real Mallorca away on 7 October as they extended their winless run to four league matches. 
The Bats are also winless in their last four away matches having recorded two defeats and two draws on the road.
Team News
Bilbao have no suspension concerns coming into this game, but Mikel Vesga and Yeray are on the club's injury list.
While Betis will be without André Almeida, Jesús Vázquez, Mouctar Diakhaby and Alberto Marí who are all out injured and the club has no suspension concerns.
"We had it there at times. We got into the final third and did some damage," Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde said after his side's defeat to Barcelona.
"It's a pity because we played really well. We were good and we put Barcelona under pressure. We just needed to convert some of our chances and score to put a bit of fear into them. 
"Unfortunately, luck went against us at the end as the game was opening up."
Bilbao secured a 2-1 win over Valencia in their last meeting in La Liga in a match played at the Estadio de Mestalla on 11 February 2023.
The Lions are unbeaten in their last seven matches against the Bats in the league having recorded three wins and four draws.
