Athletic Bilbao is coming to this match after defeat in season opener in Spanish Primera against Barcelona 0:1. Before that in first official match in new campaign they managed to defeat Barcelona in first leg in Super cup 4:0, and in rematch they managed to stay undefeated and got a draw 1:1, so they won Super cup against one of the best teams in a world at this moment. In first match of final round in Europa league qualifications they suffered defeat against Slovakian Zilina, although they were leading 2:0, Zilina managed to overcome that result and in the end win 3:2, but it's important that Bilbao had a lot of changes in squad for that match and their team was not even close to their strongest lineup. They finished last season in their domestic league at seventh place, they also played in Champions league group stage and they finished on third place in group, and after that they were eliminated in 1/16 finals in Europa league. They have quality for sure to recover result from first leg and reach Europa league group stage. For this match defenders San Jose, Balenziaga, Etxeita, midfielders Iturraspe, Muniain and striker Williams are injured and won't play in this match.

Zilina, on the other hand has only one defeat since new season started, and they are in very good shape. After five rounds in their domestic league they have three victories and two draws. In first match against Bilbao they managed to come back after conceding two goals an win that match, now they come to this match with advantage but it will be very hard for them to stay undefeated against such a strong team as Bilbao. They started Europa league qualifications from a first round, where they eliminated Glentoran from Northern Ireland, in second round they were better against Moldovian Dacia in both legs, and in last round they managed to eliminate Ukrainian Vorskla Poltava. Now they have a very hard task in this match, to stay undefeated, they must play on very high level if they want to achieve good result and reach Europa league group stage. For this match defender Mabouka won't play due to an injury.

Bilbao is favorite for this match, they have quality and experience to achieve positive result in this match, they play this match in front of their own fans, and they will for sure give their best to win here although they have problems with injuries, Zilina on the other side will try to stay undefeated, but I expect that Bilbao will win in this match despite all the problems they have with injuries.
