Reason For Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona Predictions

  • The last seven meetings between the sides have all produced under 2.5 goals.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in Bilbao’s last four home games.
  • Four of Barcelona’s seven away matches this term have also produced under 2.5 goals.

Barca Set For Another Battle in Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona have served up plenty of hard fought, low scoring encounters in recent times and we may well see a repeat when the sides lock horns at San Mames this week.

It was certainly the case in last season’s corresponding fixture which conjured up one of the most electric moments of the campaign, as now retired hitman Aritz Aduriz blasted in an outrageous bicycle kick to secure all three points for Bilbao, who often save their best for taking on the Catalan giants.

Barca will have to avenge that defeat here to realistically stay in the title race as they’re currently ten points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who also have a game in hand up their sleeve.

The champions are in decent form with four wins and two draws accrued from their last six, but three defeats from seven on the road this term certainly tempers enthusiasm for backing Ronald Koeman’s side, especially considering Bilbao have won five from eight at San Mames this season and will inevitably raise their game under the watchful eye of new boss Marcelino who replaced the sacked Gaizka Garitano on Monday.

Under 2.5 goals have been netted in the last seven meetings between the sides and that looks by far the best bet for this midweek cracker, especially as all but two of Bilbao’s eight home outings have also seen less than three scored.

With another tight battle on the cards in the Basque Country, we’re also tipping up a 1-1 draw.
