Our football match prediction:
There will be fireworks when Athletic Club and Eibar face each other in the Basque derby at San Mames Barria. Athletic Club are undefeated in previous nine league fixtures, but they are sitting in the bottom half of the La Liga standings ahead of Matchday 21. The Lions are eyeing a place in European competitions and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the fellow Basque club in Friday’s football match. Eibar have been impressive at home ground this season, but they have already suffered five defeats on the road in the national championship to date. With only one point separating the two teams ahead of the local derby, a close encounter is on the cards and we predict that one goal is going to separate the two teams in the San Mames Barria clash. Athletic Club are a real force to be reckoned with at home and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Lions.
