Athletic Announce November Friendly Against Eibar During International Break
Keeping with the club’s trend over the past few years, Athletic will continue to play friendly matches during international breaks. These games allow the team to keep a rhythm as well as work on things that have been addressed or introduced in training. So far this season, Athletic have played friendlies against Toulouse, Alavés, and Barakaldo and will be back in action during the stoppage later this month.
On Friday Athletic officially announced that they will host Eibar at Lezama on 15 November for a friendly. This match comes in the first week of the international break and will be played at 11:00am behind closed doors.
The friendly against Eibar will come just one month before the two Basque clubs face off in La Liga action. Athletic are scheduled to host Eibar at San Mamés on 15 December, but that date has not been firmly set at this point. In the meantime, the Lions will be singularly focused on their next two matches against Villarreal and Levante before the international break begins.
