Athletic Bilbao have now gone five games without a win. Their most recent slip-up was a 2-0 defeat to Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano. Ziganda’s side cannot afford to let their guard down if they want to stay out of trouble. “It’s now a question of hard work and effort. We’ve got to keep working and pushing ourselves. In the end hard work and effort will make the difference, but we’ve got to get moving, time’s running out, other teams are on our backs. We’re well aware that it’s absolutely vital we change things round.” They’re up against the bottom team in the league, Malaga. They went down to Valencia last time out, have lost their last three games and have a mere 13 points in the table. Ignasi Miquel was sent off against Los Ches, and will miss the encounter.
