Athletic Bilbao president Josu Urrutia believes that his side will benefit from having the return leg of their Champions League playoff against Napoli in front of their own supporters.
The first leg of the tie will take place in Naples on September 19, before Napoli travel to Bilbao for the second leg on September 27.
"We'll play the return at San Mames which gives us a slender advantage," he told reporters at a press conference.
"Personally, I am quite glad that we will be at home for the return but that doesn't guarantee you anything in this tournament."
The two teams were paired together in the draw on Friday.
