ATH Vs OSA Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: A win for Osasuna takes them level on points with Athletic Bilbao.
For Athletic Bilbao, 2020 has been anything but kind to the club. Callous displays, appalling performances and angst filled results have seen them lose massive ground in their fight for the top 4 with the club going on a five match winless spree as things stand.
Defeated 2-1 by Real Sociedad the last time around, Athletic Bilbao’s whirlwind spiral down the league standings continued with the side stumbling all the way into 10th position. It’s been a drab outing for them across the course of the last month, a plight Osasuna will be looking to capitalise on when they take on the home side in this one.
Athletic Bilbao’s unravelling has meant that only a three point gap separated them and 12th placed Osasuna at the moment. However, Osasuna have not endured the most solace filled time in the league either with the side on a two match losing spree at the moment after being ripped apart and cut short by Real Madrid in a 4-1 thumping the last time around.
ATH Vs OSA Probable Winner
Osasuna’s defence has massively let them down this season and their backline will end up defining this fixture. Their inability to shut down oppositions from scoring past them will lead to their demise today to see Athletic Bilbao come out of this tie with the a gruelling and closely contested win.

ATH Vs OSA Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Unai Simon from athletic Bilbao joins our side as the custodian of our goal for this one. He’s shown his acumen on ample occasions, providing unstinted support to safeguard his side’s sticks and ensure they have been able to keep themselves in encounters despite having a paper thin defence.
ATH Vs OSA Dream11 Defenders
Athletic Bilbao have tried to compensate for their lack of goals by bolstering things up defensively. And its paid rewards for them as well with the side emerging as one of the stringiest defences in the league with a mere 19 goals let in all season.
And they’ll be turning to their staunch backline to pull out yet another astute display today, something the side is more than capable of fabricating. It’s down to the myriad ability of Ander Capa and Yuri Berchiche to see us bring them both in while the opposition will be represented by Pervis Estupinan.
ATH Vs OSA Dream11 Midfielders
The fulcrum of Osasuna’s attack, Ruben Garcia with the six goals and two assists was always going to be a regulation selection for us for the day’s contest. We are pairing him alongside Roberto Torres who has supplied an impressive four goal and 6 assists with the two making for an indomitable partnership.
Darko Brasanac is brought in as well as we opt for a trio of picks from the visiting setup while from the home side we are moving in for the guile filled Ibai Gomez for the day’s contest.
ATH Vs OSA Dream11 Strikers
At a time when Athletic Bilbao are facing a massive dearth of options in the attacking slot, the onus lies squarely on six goal man Raul Garcia-Ecudero to compensate for the void the side are suffering with at the moment. And given his capabilities, he’s all too adept at living upto the expectations accorded from him to make an instant pick.
He’s joined up by Asier Villalibre who put in a strong showing against Espanyol along with Inaki Williams who scored for the side in their previous fixture.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Osasuna’s tottering defence and Williams’ astute skill set makes him our captain while Garcia is the vice-captain.
