Athletic Club weekend fixtures

Athletic Club follow their magnificent opening day win over Barcelona with their first away trip of the new season, a visit to Getafe. The match is scheduled to kick of at 21:00 local time on Saturday night at the Estadio de Alfonso Pérez.

Getafe started with a 1-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid last weekend. It was a fixture they were expected to lose, so it’s hard to assess their form at this early stage of the season, but this is the sort of match that Athletic Club will hope to get something from if they are to challenge for a European place this time around. A draw would probably be a decent result to maintain their unbeaten start.
