      Athletic Bilbao vs Malaga Predictions

      It has been a nightmare start to the season so far for Malaga. Perhaps the only surprise is that Javi Gracia remains in his position after what has been an awful 2015. The are winless in 5 matches, losing 4 of those fixtures and remain in the relegation zone and very much in the relegation fight.

      If they are to get out of if their away form is going to have to improve. In truth it can’t get much worse. Malaga have scored just 1 goal in 7 away matches this season, losing 6 times, the most recent of which was a defeat at Segunda Division Mirandés in the Copa del Rey this week.

      San Mames is a tough place to go at the best of times so it’s hard to see Malaga ending their away nightmare here. Athletic Bilbao are in excellent form and have won 8 of their last 9 matches in all competitions and the goals have been flowing too.

      The Basque side have netted twice or more in 10 of their last 11 matches so against a Malaga side that have by some distance the worst goalscoring record in the league, backing Athletic Bilbao -1.0 Asian Handicap at 1.875 is surely a smart move.

      It should be relatively comfortable for the home team who could move as high as 5th with a win this weekend. They’ve won their last 2 matches to nil and will fancy another clean sheet here so consider backing this to finish 2-0 to Athletic Bilbao at 6/1.
