Tip Reasoning

  • Seven of Athletic Bilbao’s nine league games have produced under 2.5 goals, including each of their four away trips.
  • Under 2.5 goals have also been netted in six of Espanyol’s ten La Liga fixtures including three of their five home matches.
  • Seven of the last eight meetings between the sides have seen less than three goals scored.

In-form sides lock horns in Catalunya

Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao are in good nick going into Matchday 11 and the spoils could be shared in a low scoring contest at RCDE Stadium.

Both sides are difficult to oppose here, with Espanyol victorious in their last three home outings and Athletic Bilbao winning their last two starts and losing just one of their nine La Liga matches this season (W4, D4).

Los Leones are unbeaten in four on their travels with three of those fixtures ending all square, and a draw looks the way to go this Tuesday for correct score players with a goalless stalemate appealing.

Defences to dominate at RCDE Stadium

The teams have each played out two 0-0 draws apiece already this season, and their positive results have been built around the foundation of a solid defence.

Espanyol have kept clean sheets in two of their last three games at RCDE Stadium, while Bilbao have been particularly impressive at the back throughout the opening weeks of the campaign, maintaining five clean sheets in total and conceding just five goals overall.

It’s no surprise that all but two of the visitors’ nine matches this term have produced under 2.5 goals as a consequence, and with seven of the last eight meetings between these teams also generating less than three goals, that’s our main prediction for this week’s clash in Barcelona with chances set to be at a premium.
