Tip Reasoning

  • Athletic Bilbao have lost only one of their last ten home games
  • Valencia are on a run of six matches games without a victory
  • Valencia have not beaten anybody above ninth place on the road

Bilbao still in the European fight

They have left it late, but Athletic Bilbao are making a surge for the European spots in La Liga thanks to a run of just two defeats in eight matches since the end of February.

Marcelino García Toral’s side are now just one point behind seventh placed Villarreal and will be hoping to build on a strong record of nine wins in 17 outings at San Mames Barria.

Indeed, their home form has been taken to a new level of late, picking up six victories in ten and losing just once, while they have been defeated by just one team below Valencia in the table since November.

Valencia desperate to end dreadful run

It’s now six games without a win for Valencia, including a penalty shoot out defeat to Real Betis in the Copa del Rey final and a 1-1 draw with bottom club Levante last weekend.

José Bordalás’ side are slipping down the table and in danger of failing to finish in the top half, with a run of just two victories in their last nine outings away from the Mestalla not helping their cause.

Those wins came against struggling Mallorca and Elche and there have been clear problems facing the better teams in La Liga, as their last success against a team in the top half was in October, when they beat Villarreal 2-0.

It is tough to see Valencia winning this game, so an Athletic Bilbao win is my initial prediction, with 2-0 to the hosts my correct score prediction.
