Tip Reasoning

  • Elche were 2-0 winners when the sides met here on the final day of last season.
  • Despite finishing 17th, Fran Escriba’s men lost just six of their 19 home starts last term (W5, D8).
  • Athletic Bilbao won just three of their 19 away trips in 2020/21, losing nine.

Bilbao set for a bleak return to action

Athletic Bilbao will hope to start putting a disastrous 2020/21 campaign behind them when they take on Elche on Matchday 1, but it’s the hosts who get our vote in the double chance market for Monday’s action at Estadio Martinez Valero.

These sides met on the final day here last season when Elche posted a 2-0 win to ensure their La Liga survival and it’s difficult to see why the bookmakers have chalked up Fran Escriba’s charges as near 3/1 underdogs for this clash.

Despite finishing 17th, Elche lost just six of their 19 home starts last term (W5, D8) and they were generally very competitive on their own turf throughout the campaign.

Athletic Bilbao’s aforementioned defeat at this venue in May was one of nine which Los Leones suffered on their travels last term, with a meagre three wins mustered in total from their 19 away trips.

Marcelino’s men lost their final three league games of the campaign to cap a torrid few months which saw Bilbao slide out of European qualification contention and lose two Copa Del Rey finals, and there’s little to suggest that things will be much brighter for the Basque outfit this term.

At current prices, Elche are great value in the double chance market to bag at least a point from this fixture, though we think Los Franjiverdes’ momentum from their survival effort can lead them towards a 1-0 victory in Valencia this Monday.
