The 2021-22 edition of La Liga is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Valencia lock horns with an impressive Athletic Bilbao side in an important clash at the Estadio San Mames on Saturday.

Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia Preview

Valencia are currently in 10th place in the La Liga standings and have not been at their best so far this season. Los Che were held to a 1-1 draw by local rivals Levante in their previous game and will need to take it up a notch this weekend.

Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and have been fairly impressive this year. The Basque outfit stunned Atletico Madrid with a 2-0 victory last week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.
