20:00, Feb 21 2021
Athletic Bilbao vs Villarreal predictions for this La Liga Santander battle on Sunday at Estadio de San Mamés. Villarreal (In sixth position) and Athletic (In tenth position) are looking for Europa League positions. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Athletic Bilbao

Since the arrival of Marcelino García Torral, in January of 2021, the Basque team clearly has improved in their game and after winning the Spanish Super Cup vs Barcelona they are a lot more confident in themselves.

Two defeats for Marcelino’s men in their last five games in La Liga, both against Barcelona.

Mikel Vesga Vesga and Unai Nuñez won’t play this game due to accumulation of yellow cards.

Villarreal

Villarreal appears in this game in a low mood, however, maybe the win in their Europa League match can motivate the team to change this negative attitude in La Liga. The Submarino Amarillo hasn’t won any of their last five games in La Liga.

It’s highly likely that there will be player changes in the starting XI for this game, thinking on their next week game of Europa League vs Red Bull Salzburg.

Iborra, Alberto Moreno, Coquelin and Mario will be on medical leave for this game.

Key Stats

  • In four out of five Athletic’s last games they finished with over 2.5 total goals
  • Villarreal has conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games
  • Athletic’s goal for and against in the last five games is 13-7
  • Villarreal’s goal for and against in the last five away games is 9-5

Athletic Bilbao vs Villarreal Predictions

As we said, Athletic is now in a good mood, in the past couple of weeks they are one of the teams who score more goals and they will play against a team which in away games they used to generate problems for their opponents. 

We predict a game with many chances to score for both teams and the total goals of this match will be over 2.5 goals.
