Estadio Municipal de Ipurua will host the Basque derby between Eibar and Athletic Club. Los Armeros are eyeing their first win of the season, but you should bear in mind that it has been four years since they recorded their last triumph over their local rivals. Eibar suffered a 2-1 loss at Villarreal at the weekend, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Friday’s football game. To date, Sportpesa offers the best odds for this match.
Athletic Club, on the other hand, kicked off the new La Liga campaign with a 2-0 loss to Granada, but they were not in action at the weekend. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards in the Basque derby, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Ibai Gomez remains in the recovery room for the visitors, while experienced midfielder Pape Diop returns from suspension for the hosts.

HIGHLIGHTED PLAYER (MARKO DMITROVIC):
A Red Star Belgrade youth prospect, Serbian goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic never got a chance to shine at his boyhood club. The talented shot-stopper was forced to take a longer road to prominence and travelled through Hungary, England and Spain to find his place under the sun. Spells with Ujpest, Charlton Athletic and Alcoron brought nothing but disappointment for the Serbia ‘keeper, who rose to full prominence at Eibar.
Dmitrovic was voted the best player of Eibar for the 2017/18 season after not missing a single league appearance for Los Armeros. Apart from his footballing exploits, Marko Dmitrovic remains remembered for saving Angel Rodriguez Diaz’s life in a game against Getafe.
Dmitrovic was the one to unintentionally knock Angel to the ground after a duel in the box and was also the first one to pull his tongue out when it became apparent that Angel was lying still on the ground. Marko Dmitrovic is Serbia’s second choice goalkeeper who made his debut in 2017. The Eibar custodian was part of Serbia’s World Cup expedition in Russia but did not get a chance in goal with Vladimir Stojkovic being favoured between the sticks.
