Tip Reasoning

  • Both sides’ opening three La Liga games have produced under 2.5 goals.
  • Both teams have conceded just one goal apiece, each keeping two clean sheets.
  • However, the sides have also netted just five goals between them thus far.
  • Both teams will turn out at San Mames protecting unbeaten starts to the season (Bilbao W1, D2; Mallorca W2, D1).

Defensively strong sides keen to protect unbeaten starts

Athletic Bilbao and Mallorca put their unbeaten starts to the La Liga season on the line this Saturday night and we’re expecting defences to come out on top at San Mames.

Newly promoted Mallorca have made an outstanding return to the top flight so far with seven points claimed from a possible nine, and their success to date has been built upon a grafting midfield and stingy defence, which has kept two clean sheets and conceded just a single goal.

Los Bermellones arguably face their stiffest task of the campaign here though, against a Bilbao side who will be delighted with their five point haul. Like Mallorca, Bilbao have maintained two shut-outs and conceded just one goal, helping them to edge out Celta Vigo last time out after draws with Elche and Barcelona.

In addition to the sides’ impressive defensive stats, the goals have been hard to come by at the other end of the field and the teams have netted just five between them in their six combined matches. It’s no surprise then that all of those games have produced under 2.5 goals, and that’s our recommendation for Saturday’s action at San Mames.

And with both teams defensively dominant and hunting to preserve their unbeaten starts to the campaign, a draw looks the best route to take for correct score backers. This should be a real battle and it would be far from a shock were it to end goalless.
