Reason For Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad Predictions

  • Athletic Bilbao have won four of their last five home matches.
  • Real Sociedad have lost their last three La Liga games.
  • The visitors are without a victory in their last nine starts across all competitions (D6, L3).

Bilbao Backed for Derby Success

The wheels have well and truly fallen off for Real Sociedad over the past couple of weeks and Imanol Alguacil’s side could face a fourth successive La Liga defeat in this Thursday’s Basque derby at San Mames.

Txuri-Urdinak couldn’t be in worse form going into the first of at least three encounters with their great rivals this term – with the two sides still set to clash in last season’s Copa Del Rey showpiece which has been delayed until April 2021.

While still third in the table, defeats to Barcelona (2-1), Levante (2-1) and Atletico Madrid (0-2) in the space of just six days have seen Sociedad drop off the pace at the top of La Liga and they could be ousted from the European qualification positions soon unless things turn around.

It’s easy to envisage Alguacil’s side lifting their game for this week’s big derby but Sociedad are impossible to fancy after nine games without a victory in all competitions (D6, L3).

Bilbao won this corresponding fixture 2-0 last season and we’re backing another win here for Los Leones, who have won four of their last five outings at San Mames. Sociedad have netted in all but one of their eight away games this term, so we’re opting for a 2-1 correct score this time around.
