Espanyol vs Athletic Bilbao Live | Spanish La Liga | Date: Monday, 5 November 2018 | Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET | Venue: RCDE Stadium (Cornella de Llobregat)
Espanyol 1 : 0 Athletic Bilbao
Espanyol will host Athletic Bilbao in the final game on the 11th on Monday night at the Stade RCDE. The hosts are one of the most pleasant surprises of the season so far. They occupy fifth place after 10 games and enter this confidence after two wins and one draw in the last three outings of the league.
The Budgerigars had bad luck last weekend to send the tie against Valladolid Municipal Stadium José Zorrilla. The draw ended his two-game winning streak. The line of five consecutive games without defeat, however, ended in Cádiz. Although Rubi established a fairly solid field lineup for the first leg of the Copa del Rey first leg against the second division opposition, Espanyol lost 2-1 on Thursday night. Do they have the strength to recover four days later and pursue the League’s dream?

Espanyol vs Athletic de Bilbao: Prediction
Bilbao had a disappointing campaign in the last quarter of the competition but did not behave much better at the start of the new season. The Lions are without victories in nine consecutive starts.
They attracted up to seven people and lost two on the way. The lack of efficiency in the last third was the main reason for this thread, 1-1 is his best score this season.
Knowing the beautiful form of Espanyol at the start of the new season, we would like to have the qualification of 1.95 free for the local victory here. The Budgerigars have won four of the four games against the local audience. So far in the campaign, giving them a single goal.
