They will play in Europa League next season because they reached the final of the spanish cup (vs Barcelona)I love Bilbao, and they have a harder task than any other club in the world due to the basque rule. Adleast they wont go bankrupt. I will really miss tthem in europe next year:'(
They haven't been playing Llorente as he won't sign a new contract and is free to talk to other clubs about a free transfer in Jaunuary, so that explains a lack of goals. etc.I was just reading through the comments on this page, and what has happened to Bilbao this season? They are doing very poorly, much worse than last season, yet it's not like they have lost their whole team (only Javi Martinez)! Anyone know what's going on, is there a reason or are they just underachieving?
Hope you enjoy the 0-0 draw at your place before we beat you 1-0 at ours.
You obviously haven't seen us play in Europe then hehe! We have had 4 clean sheets in a row, looking to make it 6 against you lotBoth play very open and with a relatively fast tempo

I don't expect us to get through, surprised we even got this far. Our league position is fine, we won't get relegated, so we may as well go all out against you lot!
to be fair I was flicking throught the games and was some decent football, watched second half of salzburg and ajax was decent enough.Nobody gives a **** about this thread (or this competition...) but there's been plenty of surprises so far.
Shakhtar going out to Viktoriz Plzen at home.
Lazio going out to a Bulgarian team that scored a last minute equaliser to go through 4-3 on aggregate.
Dead-last Betis beating Rubin in Russia to go through.
Swansea giving Napoli a big *** scare.
Porto going through on away goals after a 3-3 draw against Frankfurt, 5-5 on aggregate.
Red Bull Salzburg raping Ajax and going through 6-1 on aggregate.
Sevilla having to work hard to make it past Slovenian side Maribor.
And there's more to come!
