Athletic Schedule Preseason Friendly Against Eibar On 5 September At Lezama
Since the Athletic first team began preseason training on Thursday the club has been working diligently to put together the friendly schedule for the summer. Two matches were already on the calendar before training started and a third was added which will see Athletic travel to face Kuko Ziganda’s Real Oviedo.
Today, the club announced a fourth friendly. Eibar will be visiting Lezama on 5 September in what will be one of the toughest games of the summer. The fixture will come just one day after Athletic travel to Oviedo, meaning most players likely won’t feature in both.
For now Athletic’s first preseason friendly will be played on 29 August when the team travels to Logroñés. With just four games confirmed there are sure to be more as the team will be preparing to challenge for the Copa del Rey title this season as well as a top seven finish in the La Liga table.
