Elite Soccer Club Friendlies: Athletic Bilbao vs FenerbahcePublished July 17, 2017 by Sol FH
An incredible match-up today at 19:00 GMT between Athletic Bilbao and Fenerbahce.
Two of Europe's best soccer teams face-off in an Elite Teams Friendly match from Stade Municipal, Yverdon-les-Bains in Switzerland and both teams are shooting for the win. Bilbao started out their pre-season friendlies against Basel, the Swiss giants, and ultimately lost 3-2, but they looked incredible throughout the match, but they got hooked with a Red Card in the early minutes and just couldn't come back. On the 15th of July, Bilbao were back in action against Sion and won 2-0 after goals from Elsad Zverotic (an own goal), and Raul Garcia Escudero.
Fenerbahce have not yet found their best squad yet and they haven't yet won a single friendly this year. They lost to Marseilles and just do not look like they will be much of a challenge against Bilbao.
Athletic finished last year's La Liga season in 7th place, after a few bad matches at the end of the year. They have made some moves in the off-season, which should improve their squad for the coming season. They are the favorites to win today, with online sportsbook, bet365 Sports posting odds in their favor at 2.00, while Fenerbahce at just a little bit behind at 3.40.
