17:00, May 22 2021
Elche vs Athletic Bilbao predictions for this La Liga clash on Saturday at Manuel Martinez Valero. This one is a crucial game for Elche in their fight to stay in La Liga against Athletic, who has nothing at stake. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Elche

We are down to the last matchday and Elche is not depending on themselves to stay in the league, the team from Alicante must win and hope that Huesca draw or lose.

Elche’s season has been quite irregular, but not much more was expected of them either, as they are arguably the team that was the worst reinforced this season in terms of signings, along with Eibar.

Elche is the fourth worst home side, with only four wins in 18 games.

Athletic Bilbao

Athletic’s bad season in general terms, the arrival of Marcelino as new coach improved the Basque team a bit, but the truth is that the two Copa del Rey finals lost in less than two weeks left them very damaged.

Athletic’s poor away record with only three wins, seven draws and eight defeats.

 

Key Stats

  • Two wins and three defeats for Elche in their last five games
  • Elche has conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games
  • Two draws, two losses and one win for Athletic in their last five games
  • Only one win for Athletic in their last five away games

Elche vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions

Although Elche is obliged to win this game, they are not a very strong team and they will face an Athletic team that is quite closed and very difficult to score against, we think that this game could end in a draw, as we don’t see Athletic as a very strong team and even less so as an away team.

We don’t think this is going to be a high scoring game, as we have said, Athletic is quite defensive. So we think this match could have less than 1.5 total goals.
