Following a 2-0 loss to Osasuna in the Basque derby, Athletic Bilbao will look to climb to the Conference League berth when they host Elche to their San Mames on Sunday.
The Lions are determined to represent Spain in European competitions next term and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course.
Midfielder Oihan Sancet is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while all Ander Herrera, Dani Garcia, and Jon Morcillo remain in the recovery room. Both Yeray Alvarez and Inigo Martinez are major doubts.
Los Franjiverdes, on the other hand, do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team failing to secure the Primera Division survival. Given Elche’s poor away record, anything but a routine home win would be a big surprise.
All Alamo, Carmona, Gonzalez, Mascarell, and Palacios have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away team.
This match will be played on 28/05/2023 at 18:00
