KICK off: 25 January 19:00
Information: Athletic will again be without the services of Peru Nolaskoain through injury, but Inigo Martinez should shake off a minor knock to feature at the heart of the defence. Head coach Marcelino will make wholesale changes from the side that started against Ibiza in the Copa del Rey, with the likes of Iker Muniain, Raul Garcia, Inaki Williams and Oscar de Marcos all set to return. Unai Simon will also be back between the sticks, while Dani Garcia and Unai Vencedor are likely to get the nod in the middle of the park, with Mikel Vesga expected to drop to the bench. As for Getafe, Erick Cabaco and Mathias Olivera should have overcome knocks to start, but Enes Unal, Victor Mollejo and Cucho Hernandez are unlikely to be involved for the visitors. Mauro Arambarri has overcome an adductor injury and should continue in midfield, while recent signings Alena and Kubo are again expected to feature in attacking positions for the visitors. Head coach Bordalas has options for change in the final third of the field, but Jaime Mata should again get the nod over Angel despite the fact that the latter has more league goals to his name this term. Athletic Bilbao possible starting lineup: Simon; Capa, Alvarez, Martinez, Berchiche; De Marcos, Vencedor, D Garcia, Muniain; R Garcia, Williams Getafe possible starting lineup: Yanez; Suarez, Cabaco, Dakonam, Olivera; Arambarri, Maksimovic; Kubo, Alena, Cucurella; Mata
