Athletic Bilbao will be desperately keen to stay in the race for a final Champions League spot as they host Osasuna at the Estadio San Mames for a Saturday night's LaLiga clash.

Athletic Bilbao vs Osasuna Betting Tips : ATHLETIC BILBAO TO WIN

With just 12 points remaining up for grabs before the curtain falls on the LaLiga 2023-24 campaign, Athletic Bilbao still hasn't waved the white flag in their pursuit of a top-four finish, but they'll need to be flawless in the final weeks and keep their fingers crossed for Atletico Madrid to drop significant points.

The Basque outfit last managed to make a top-four finish exactly 10 years ago, but the return of European football to San Mames for the next season is certainly viewed as a successful domestic campaign, considering they have finished eight or lower in the previous six LaLiga season.

Since confirming their appearance in the UEFA Europa League for the upcoming season, thanks to clinching their 24th Copa del Rey crown in early April, Valverde's troops have fallen out of rthythm, enduring four top-flight matches without a single success (D2, L2). Fortunately, a brace from Inaki Williams, set up by his brother Nico, helped Athletic to shake off a poor run of form with a comfortable 2-0 win at Getafe.

The return to San Mames brings a significant amount of positivity for the Lions, who have remained unbeaten in any of their previous 19 matches across all competitions (W14, D5), with the only side to leave this pitch with a full haul of three points this term being the newly-crowned champions Real Madrid, who defeated the Basques 2-0 on the opening day of the season.

The upcoming opponent, Osasuna, has been performing terribly in recent weeks, having only managed to scrape together a measly three points out of the available 21 in their last seven LaLiga matches, with their most recent outing seeing them condemned to their fourth straight loss after being beaten 0-2 by Real Betis in Pamplona.

Knowing they've long been ruled out of the race for a European finish, the 13th-placed Los Rojillos will at least attempt to snug themselves among the top 10, but their prospects of securing a positive result here look bleak, as they've only managed to claim all three points once in their last 14 visits to Basque territory, sharing the spoils four times and suffering nine defeats.

Moreover, Jagoba Arrasate's men, under the guidance of the departing coach bidding farewell to the Pamplona side after seven years, have looked blunt in the final third of the pitch, finding the net only once during an active four-game losing streak, so Athletic Bilbao, typically strong at home, should collect all three points and stay in the race for the final Champions League spot.

Athletic Bilbao team news

Key defender Dani Vivian was ruled out of last week's clash with Getafe with a back issue, so the 24-year-old will remain a question mark for Saturday's LaLiga contest.

Athletic Bilbao will not be able to call on backline duo Yeray Alvarez and Aitor Peredes after both were sent off in the 2-0 win over Getafe, meaning they face one-match bans.

Osasuna team news

Spain international Aimar Oroz has returned to club training after being sidelined for almost a month with a strain, but perhaps the Athletic Bilbao clash could come too soon for him.

A big headache for coach Jagob Arrasate, who will not be near the touchline after seeing red in last week's 0-2 loss to Real Betis, will be the absence of top scorer Ante Budimir, who is recovering from three broken ribs.

Jon Moncayola will miss Saturday's trip to the Basque Country after being shown a red card following a VAR review last Friday, meaning the midfielder faces a one-match suspension.
