Malaga vs Athletic Bilbao

Markel Susaeta has called for Athletic Bilbao to play better away from home when they face Malaga next week.

Los Leones travel to La Rosaleda on Monday to play the Costa del Sol outfit, but the winger has asked for his team to up their levels away from San Mames.

“We have to start playing better away from home,” he told reporters. “It has to come sooner rather than later – and what better way than to win in Malaga.

“Malaga aren’t the team they were a few years ago, but I’m sure they’re going to make it very interesting for us.

“We know that Schuster’s teams make it very hard, and it’s certainly going to be a challenge for us on Monday.

“We’re fifth at the moment and playing well. But we’ve had chances to get into fourth, and haven’t given what we should have.

“Hopefully we will get that opportunity again, and will seize it.”
