Tip Reasoning

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Athletic Bilbao’s eight league games.
  • Under 2.5 goals have also been scored in five of Villarreal’s eight starts.
  • Both sides have kept five clean sheets apiece so far this term.
  • The last five meetings have generated under 2.5 goals, with four of those games ending level.

Draw specialists square off at San Mames

The last five meetings between Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal have been tight, low scoring affairs and we’re anticipating that trend to continue when the sides square off at San Mames on Matchday 10.

There have been four draws in the teams’ last five encounters which have all produced under 2.5 goals, and everything we’ve seen from both clubs so far this season points towards a similar outcome on Saturday.

Both sides have been superb defensively in the opening exchanges of the campaign, keeping five clean sheets apiece and conceding a meagre combined total of just nine goals.

It’s no surprise with those stats that all but one of Athletic Bilbao’s eight starts have produced under 2.5 goals, with the same applying to five of Villarreal’s eight outings, including three of The Yellow Submarine’s away trips.

Low scoring stalemate fancied

The sides’ sturdy rear guards have led to just one loss apiece from eight games, though both have played out a glut of draws having failed to consistently fire up front. The teams have struck just 16 goals between them, leading to five draws for Villarreal and four for Los Leones.

The recent meetings and early season results undoubtedly indicate that the sides should be fairly evenly matched here, with defences likely to be on top.

As such, under 2.5 goals is our confident selection for the action at San Mames and we’re also backing a 0-0 draw, which would bring up Villarreal’s fifth goalless stalemate of the campaign.
