Athletic will play at home with Real Madrid in the 18th round of La Liga 2022/23.
Athletic Bilbao are still chasing their first La Liga win since the World Cup in Qatar. Last weekend, the team lost in a derby against Real Sociedad (1-3), which was already the fifth in the tournament.

After losing (1-2) to Villarreal in La Liga and then (1-3) to Barcelona in the Super Cup final, head coach Carlo Ancelotti admitted his team was going through a “difficult moment”.
Such setbacks and a string of injuries to leading players came to light in the first half of Thursday’s Copa Del Rey, where the team went on halftime 0-2 to Villarreal.
