Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in nine of Alaves’ last eleven games
  • Three of Bilbao’s last four games have seen both teams score
  • Alaves have only failed to net in one of their last 13 outings

Alaves threatened by relegation

Alaves enter this fixture without a win in seven La Liga fixtures, a run that has seen them slip into the relegation zone on goal difference below Elche.

They are, however, scoring plenty of goals. Indeed, they have netted in 12 of their last 13 games, including five successive home league fixtures.

Their problems have come at the other end. José Luis Mendilibar’s side have conceded 13 times in 10 La Liga outings at Estadio de Mendizorroza, while both teams have netted in four successive home matches.

Bilbao’s boring run on the road

Athletic Bilbao’s ten matches away from home so far have provided a measly 12 goals, with Los Leones scoring only seven and conceding just five.

They are drawing plenty of matches on the road, seven times in fact, suffering just one defeat in the process, while their last two games on their travels have provided a 3-1 La Liga victory over Osasuna and a 2-0 defeat of Mancha Real in the Copa del Rey.

After a barren run in front of goal a few weeks ago, they have netted in their last four games, with both teams scoring in three of those matches.

I expect both teams will score in this one, so that is my initial selection, but they may just cancel each other out. They have each had plenty of draws, so 1-1 is my correct score prediction.
