Celta vs Athletic Bilbao: Predictions and Betting Tips

16:00, Aug 28 2021
Celta vs Athletic Bilbao predictions for this La Liga clash on Saturday at Balaidos. Celta and Athletic Bilbao go head-to-head this weekend in search of their first La Liga win of the season, but who will be the owner of the three points?. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Celta

After a defeat against Atletico Madrid in their opening match, and a goalless draw against Osasuna in their second, Celta will be looking for their first win of the season in front of their home fans.

Despite finishing eighth last season, Celta conceded the fourth most goals in La Liga, with a total of 57 in 38 games.

Celta have now gone four consecutive league matches against Athletic without defeat.

Athletic Bilbao

Athletic have yet to win a game in La Liga this season, instead earning two draws in two games. Admittedly, the second draw was against Barcelona, a positive result that should give them confidence coming into this match.

Last season Athletic won only three of the 19 away games they played. Considering that the squad remains largely the same, it will be interesting to see if they can improve on this figure this season.

Key Stats:

  • Two wins, two draws and one defeat for Celta in their last five games
  • Celta have only conceded two goals in their last five games
  • Three consecutive draws for Athletic
  • Athletic have conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games

Celta vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions 

Celta and Athletic come into this match in similar form. Both lack goalscoring flair, but defensively they are quite stable and difficult to penetrate. For this reason, we think both teams have the ability to hold each other off and the game could end in a draw.
