The Basque giants stunned Southampton with a 3-1 victory earlier this week and will be confident going into this fixture. Liverpool, on the other hand, had two good outings against Bologna this week and will want to experiment with their combinations in this fixture. Jurgen Klopp has excellent players at their disposal and will want his side to step up this weekend.
Liverpool are back in action with another pre-season friendly at Anfield this weekend as they take on Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. The Merseyside giants have been impressive under Jurgen Klopp and hold the upper hand going into this game. Athletic Bilbao have been inconsistent over the past year and will need to improve their record against Europe’s better teams.
Liverpool return to Anfield to take Athletic Bilbao this afternoon, representing a penultimate pre-season fixture. The Reds impressed in two hour-long matches against Bologna on Thursday and will be looking to maintain this form with the new Premier League season just around the corner.
The 3pm kickoff saw Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane put the Reds two goals to the good before the 15-minute mark in a comfortable 2-0 win, and two hours later, a new-look Liverpool side also notched up a 14th-minute goal through Takumi Minamino before Divock Origi failed to convert from 12 yards.
