Athletic Bilbao will take on Cadiz CF in a Spanish La Liga match at the San Mames Barria on February 3.
The Lions suffered a slender 1-0 defeat to Celta Vigo away in their previous league game which was played on January 29.
As a result, Bilbao are winless in their last five matches in this competition having recorded two successive draws and three consecutive defeats.

The Lions are also winless in their last two matches at home in La Liga having registered one defeat and one draw at the San Mames Barria. 
"There have been games where we deserved more, but this was not the case today, even if Celta weren't absolutely superior. If we want to aspire to be higher up the league, we have to improve," Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde said after the game against Celta.

 "They didn't dominate like in the first half. We weren't good in the second half. It's not that we were really struggling, but we weren't comfortable. In the first half we dominated and were more dangerous. We had a couple more chances apart from the shot which hit the post.

"If we had been a bit sharper, we could've hurt them. The reality is that in the second half we didn't create enough. They were strong in the duels and we weren't as strong as we wanted to be."

Meanwhile, Cadiz secured a well-deserved 2-0 win over Real Mallorca at home in their previous league encounter which was played on January 28.
The win ended the Yellow Submarine's two-match winless run in this competition having recorded one one draw and one defeat. 
Cadiz have lost two of their last three matches on the road in La Liga, while the other game ended in a victory as the away side.
The last meeting between Bilbao and Cadiz in a league match was on 29 August 2022.
Bilbao proved too strong for Cadiz as they ran out 4-0 winners at the Nuevo Mirandilla which has a capacity of 20,724 seats - the fifth-largest stadium in Andalusia.
