They are undefeated in their last three home matches in La Liga having registered three consecutive victories.
 
Gaizka Garitano, the Bilbao manager, believes that his side is improving as they are now undefeated in their last two matches. 
 
“That’s two matches in a row without losing and the team gave a good account of themselves," Garitano said.
 
“At this ground there’s no time to think. They get on top of you and it’s difficult to combine and link up.
 
"It was one of the most physically demanding games because there’s a lot of challenges.”
