Back Bilbao to find some form

Athletic Bilbao are without a win in five across all competitions, but they should put that right against basement dwellers Alaves this Saturday.

With last term’s delayed Copa Del Rey final defeat against arch rivals Real Sociedad behind them and this season’s showpiece against Barcelona coming up next week, Los Leones will be desperate for a confidence booster here and they’ve been handed the perfect opponents.

Alaves dismissed Abelardo earlier this week after suffering their sixth defeat in seven at home to Celta Vigo last Sunday and former Villarreal boss Javier Calleja now steps in at Mendizorroza to try and pick up the pieces.

A change in coach can often inspire a much improved performance under their watch first time out, though we just can’t see it this Saturday with Babazorros in such dire form. Aside from taking just a single point from their last seven, the visitors are also winless in their last nine away trips, losing seven.

Bilbao clearly aren’t in the greatest nick at present, but they’re unbeaten in five now at San Mames (W2, D3) and look a solid bet to seal the points.

We don’t envisage many goals in the Basque County with Bilbao netting just three goals in their last four league outings, so we’re predicting a 1-0 score-line, despite our hunch that Marcelino’s men can see this one out pretty cosily.
