ATH Vs RB Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two sides in a soup take on each other looking to snap their horrid losing spree.
In 14th spot in the 2020-21 edition of the La Liga, Athletic Bilbao have gone off to a howler of a start in the new season. With just three wins in their 8 matches, the side has failed to emulate its defensive resillinace and perseverance from the previous sortie.
That plight paired with the club’s customary inability to craft the goals has seen the club emerge as an extremely easy opposition to ease past. What’s been a massive bone of contention is the fact that the club is yet to register a draw with the team failing to claw its way back into encounters after conceding the first goal.
While Real Betis haven’t done any better with the club tasting three defeats in their last five fixtures, this contest is one where they’ll be fanciful of their chances. Despite their 5-2 defeat to Barcelona the last time around, the club showed that when moving in unison, it can rattle the best of defensive setups.
ATH Vs RB Fantasy Probable Winner
This contest will be determined by Athletic Bilbao’s defence and Real Betis’ attack with the visiting unit emerging as the winner in this showdown.

While it could have been extremely easy to ignore Claudio Bravo after shipping in five goals against Real Betis, he emerged as an instant pick for us. The side’s shot stopper was the only source of solace in an otherwise appalling defensive display by his club.
While Athletic Bilbao are still yearning for reviving the defensive stability which saw them emerge as one of the finest defences last season, the club will still be represented by a trio in this docket. If there’s any club capable of recording a cleansheet today its them, a club which continues to have the basics in place.
We begin our set of picks with Ander Capa who has the one assist with Inigo Martinez and Yeray Alvarez linking up with him.
Real Betis’ top scorer with the four goals and one assist, Cristian Tello has been an entirely different pedigree for the club. William Carvalho who has helped himself to two goals will be his partner, two players capable of pouncing upon Athletic Bilbao’s jittery backline.
Joaquin Rodriguez who has strung together the one assist wraps up the set of picks from the side. Athletic Bilbao will see us rope in Unai Lopez who has thumped home the two goals with one goal man Iker Munian completing the partnership from the side.
The attacking set of picks from the club will be completed with the selection of Inaki Williams who has once again spearheaded the club’s attack to top score for them. Real Betis on the other hand will be represented by Antonio Sanabria who has the two goals in his kitty.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Inaki’s two goals and an assist see him captain our team while Tello is the vice-captain.
Bravo, Capa, Martinez, Alvarez, William, Tello, Rodriguez, Munian, Lopez, Sanabria, Williams
