Athletic Bilbao are back in action with another important La Liga fixture this weekend as they lock horns with Getafe on Monday. The two teams have experienced contrasting fortunes this season and will want to win this game.

Getafe are in 19th place in the La Liga standings and are facing an impending relegation battle this season. The Madrid-based outfit played out a 0-0 stalemate against Mallorca last weekend and will want to take it up a notch in this match.

Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and have slumped in recent weeks. The Basque giants suffered a 1-0 defeat against Real Madrid in their previous game and will look to bounce back this weekend.

Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao Head-to-Head

Athletic Bilbao have a good record against Getafe and have won 11 out of 30 matches played between the two teams. Getafe have managed seven victories against Athletic Bilbao and will want to cut the deficit on Monday.

The previous meeting between the two La Liga outfits took place in January this year and ended in a 5-1 victory for Athletic Bilbao. Getafe were ripped apart on the day and will need to be more robust this week.

Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction

Athletic Bilbao are yet to hit their stride this season and will need to solve a few issues ahead of this game. The likes of Inaki Williams and Iker Muniain have been important to their side's fortunes and will need to step up on Monday.

Getafe have struggled to impose themselves this season and face an uphill battle to survive in the top flight. Athletic Bilbao are the better team on paper and should be able to win this game.
