News for the hosts
Athletic Bilbao is in a very weak form lately, with one win in its last 6 games. Three of them suffered defeats and twice ended in a draw. Their last match was at home against Villarreal in La Liga, with the match finished 1-1. Bilbao will now have to look for victory to keep his chances of leaving the group high. Mooney is injured. Alvarez, Saborit, Isscaria and de Marcos, who are unlikely to take part in the meeting, are also in trouble. Unani Nunez is punished.
Hertha Berlin is also not in very good shape. Their position in the group obliges them to win something in the upcoming match if they want to keep their hopes of going forward. The team has 2 wins, losses and draws in their last 6 clash of all tournaments. Over the weekend Hertha lost 2-4 home from Borussia M’glidbach. Niklas Stark is injured in the guests, and Darija and Stoker are in question.
Bilbao vs. Herta
Just one match so far between them, which was played in mid-September. The Berlin meeting ended 0-0. Now there is a strong clash in the upcoming match that can keep the winner’s chances of being ranked. The Spaniards have won 7 of their last 8 households in European tournaments. They lost once. Hertha Berlin has 4 losses in its last 4 European visits. Surely both teams are not in shape, but Athletic Bilbao has the support of their fans. The team is not very convincing lately in their households from the example, but in Europe things are different. Our opinion is that the hosts will win this game. As a second option, you can risk with over 2.5 goals in the game.
