  • Sun 29/09/2019 15:00 – Athletic Club Femenino v Deportivo Abanca(Estadio de Lezama 2)

Athletic Club face Valencia in the early kick off on Saturday with the chance to provisionally go back to the top of the La Liga table if they can get a win and maintain their 100% home record so far this season. They will have high hopes of achieving that as the visitors are currently struggling at 13th in the table and have yet to pick up a point on their travels in the league, with two defeats at Celta and Barcelona to date.

The reserves, currently in third place in the Segunda Division B, could also end the weekend at the top of the table, but they face a tough assignment on Saturday evening against an Osasuna team who are only a point behind them. Bilbao Athletic go into the game on the back of three wins and three clean sheets in a row, so they ought to be full of confidence.

The Athletic Club women’s team are looking to get back to winning ways against high-flying Deportivo Abanca on Sunday afternoon, having lost to Valencia last time out in the Primera Iberdrola. They have one win and just the three points to show from their three opening fixtures, so they really need a win here to kick-start their league campaign.
