Athletic Club and Espanyol square off against each other at Estadio San Mames on day 4 of the new La Liga campaign.
The Lions aim to build on back-to-back wins over Valencia and Cadiz, and the bookies see them as favourites to win Sunday’s showdown.
Inaki Williams should continue to lead the line for the Basques despite the fact that his replacement Gorka Guruzeta scored a brace in the 4-0 crushing over Cadiz.
Los Periquitos, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid, and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that they are capable of shocking Athletic at San Mames.
Both Sergi Gomez and Benjamin Lecomte are banned for the match, while defender Adria Pedrosa remains in the recovery room.
Pol Lozano is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
This match will be played on 04/09/2022 at 15:15
Prediction: Home Win.
