Athletic Bilbao looking to secure three points at home 

A surprise defeat at home to Rayo Vallecano in round six saw Athletic Bilbao slip down the table. In fact, had they grabbed the three points against Rayo, Bilbao would be in the top six now. Nonetheless, the Lions are having a fine season with just one defeat so far.

In spite of losing points through their four draws but three of those came against Barcelona, Ath. Madrid, and Valencia. Surely, they are considered good results. However, coach Marcelino will make sure his team grabs all three points in this one. In addition, Bilbao must show a better display than the Rayo match at San Mames in which they had just one shot on target.

Bilbao Key Points

  • Bilbao are winless in three matches
  • Four of Bilbao’s last five matches saw under 2.5 goals
  • The average number of goals scored by Bilbao in their last five matches is one

Can Alaves build on their last win?

With just three points from six matches (W1, L5)  this season, Alaves are having their worst season start in three years. Having spent most of last season battling to avoid relegation, coach Javier Calleja wants to away from that experience. Hence it is important to get good results in the coming games.

Incidentally, Alaves haven’t lost to Bilbao in their last three meetings. As a result, the Glorious Ones will play at Sam Mames with some confidence. Similarly, their last win over champions Atletico will serve as a morale-booster. Furthermore and in order to keep their position among the top flight, Alaves can’t afford to drop points.

Alaves Key Points

  • The last three matches of Alaves saw under 2.5 goals 
  • Alaves have not scored in their two away matches this season
  • BTTS did not happen in any of Alaves’s last five matches

Athletic Bilbao vs Alaves Prediction

We saw many surprising results in La Liga this season. In fact, even the top clubs faced defeats and lost crucial points. As a result, some of the matches had very unpredictable outcomes.

In that sense, we think it’s best to bet on the total goals market in this match. The reason for that is the statistics of both teams in recent games which saw a low number of goals. In addition, the h2h matches saw under 2.5 goals in five of their last six meetings.

Accordingly, we will back a double chance and under 3.5 goals combo from Vbet to make the bet even more secure. Certainly, another option is not to back BTTS to happen as the chances are 34% for it to be realized.
