      Tip Reasoning

      The visitors came up with a reputation as something of a cautious side but anything but has been the case in their recent games and they’ve thrown caution to the wind in recent weeks with quite a bit of success so we should see them attack this game too.

      Both teams have scored and there have been over 2.5 goals in all of their last 5 matches and they have taken 7 points from those games with wins coming away from home at Deportivo and Espanyol, two sides that are in the top half. Therefore they won’t be approaching this game with fear and 7 of their 9 points so far have come on the road.

      Athletic seem to have recovered from their early season troubles. They picked up an excellent 3-1 win at home to Valencia in their last league game at San Mames and won 2-0 away to a decent Partizan Belgrade side in the Europa League in midweek.

      Aritz Aduriz is having another incredible season in front of goal and the 34 year old has netted 12 times already in all competitions. Of late he has received some help from his team-mates in that regard and with both teams scoring freely, there should be goals in this one and at Evens there looks to be value in backing there to be over 2.5 goals in this match.

      Athletic Bilbao have just started to look more like the side that went on an excellent run in the second half of last season and beat Barcelona so comprehensively in the Spanish Super Cup. Sporting have been impressive so far considering they are a newly promoted side but may struggle to get anything out of this game.

      They conceded 3 times at home to bottom club Granada last time out and they may struggle to cope with Athletic’s strikeforce here. Therefore consider backing this to end in a 3-1 home win at 12/1.
