      Athletic Bilbao vs AZ Predictions

      Despite losing 2-1 when these sides met earlier in the group in the Netherlands, Athletic have cruised into the knock-out stages with 4 wins out of 4 from their other matches. Meanwhile AZ have lost all of their other games and have already been eliminated but will be keen to depart European competition with a bit of a flourish.

      Athletic have already won the group so they have no real need to win this match and given they’ve played several more matches this season than any other club in La Liga they’ll be keen to give their first-team players a rest here so we should see wholesale changes from the Basque club, who have been in great form, losing just 1 of their last 12 fixtures.

      That should give AZ a chance although they will need to improve on their recent showings if they are to get anything from it. They are in mid-table in the Dutch top flight and have lost their last 3 matches in all competitions.

      They are usually an attacking side though and goals tend to fly in at both ends when AZ are involved. Both teams have scored in 4 of their 5 matches in this competition so far and the same is true of Athletic Bilbao, who have netted 14 times in 5 games so far in the group.

      Therefore consider backing both teams to score in this one at 5/6.

      Athletic’s first team is very strong but they don’t have enormous strength in depth so it would be no surprise to see AZ get a result here against what will be a weakened Athletic Bilbao side. If you fancy a correct scoreline bet with big potential returns then take a punt on a 2-2 draw at 18/1.
