    Mason Greenwood loan

    Manchester United loaned Mason Greenwood to Getafe during the summer transfer window.

    That was after a six-month internal investigation over charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control.

    The charges against Greenwood were dropped but United opted against having him in Erik ten Hag's squad this season.

    The striker hasn't managed to impress so far at the Alfonso Perez.

    Athletic Bilbao and Getafe's first ever encounter took place back in 2004 when the latter won 3-1 at home.

    Since then, the two sides have faced off 36 times with Valverde's side winning a small majority of 11 times across all competitions.

    Bordalas' team have picked up nine victories along the way.

    Their last four meetings finished in a draw after Bilbao's 5-1 victory at San Mames in 2021.

    Getafe haven't won since 2020 when they prevailed with a score of 2-0 away.

    Team news

    Athletic Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde will be without Nico Williams.

    Williams is set to miss a third consecutive game due to a muscle injury he sustained while on international duty with Spain.

    Peru Nolaskoain is also sidelined with a knee problem, while Inigo Ruiz de Galarreta is dealing with a calf injury.

    Getafe boss Jose Bordalas, on the other hand, has no fresh injury concerns.

    However, Bordalas will still be without Luis Milla and forward Enes Unal who are out with a muscle and knee injury respectively.

    But the Spanish tactician could welcome Real Madrid loanee Juanmi Latasa back to the starting line-up after he came off to score against Real Sociedad last time out.

    It is currently unknown whether Mason Greenwood will start for the visitors tonight at San Mames.
