The visitors are currently fifth in the table with 45 points from their 23 La Liga matches this season, while Almeria are bottom of the division, 14 points adrift of safety.

Almeria need a minor miracle to avoid relegation this season, with a very difficult campaign seeing them pick up just six points from their 23 matches to sit 20th, and they are still in search of their first league win of 2023-24.

La Union are 14 points behind 17th-placed Mallorca, while they have comfortably the worst defensive record in the league this season, conceding 51 times.

Gaizka Garitano’s side have the worst home record in the league this season, pickingup just five points from 11 matches, and they will be hosting an Athletic Bilbao side with the fifth-best record on their travels.

Meanwhile, Athletic will enter the contest off the back of a 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final on Wednesday night.

Alex Berenguer scored the only goal of the game to put Ernesto Valverde’s side in a strong position to finish the job in front of their own fans later this month.

The Red and Whites have also impressed in La Liga this season, recording 13 wins, six draws and four losses from 23 matches, which has left them in fifth position in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Atletico.

Athletic claimed a 4-0 victory over Mallorca in La Liga last weekend, and they boast the second-best defensive record on their travels this season behind Real Madrid.

Almeria vs. Athletic Bilbao Head to head

In the 15 previous meetings between these two teams, Almeria have claimed two victories while Athletic have won 10, and they have drawn in three. Athletic have scored 34 goals and conceded 13 in the process.

Almeria Team News

Almeria will be without the services of Luis Suarez and Arnau Puigmal on Monday through injury, while Cesar Montes, Ibrahima Kone and Aleksandar Radovanovic are major doubts.

Iddrisu Baba is expected to benefit if Montes is unavailable, while Leo Baptistao’s absence in the final third of the field will open the door for Anthony Lozano to start following his recent arrival from Getafe on loan.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Athletic are sweating over the fitness of Nico Williams, who did not feature against Atletico in the Copa del Rey due to a thigh problem, and he is a major doubt for this match.

Inigo Lekue and Berenguer are definitely out through injury, but Inaki Williams is fit despite a recent foot issue, and he is expected to be named in the starting XI.
