Las Palmas vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions

The Monday night game in La Liga is rarely as appealing as this one. Both Las Palmas and Athletic like to play attacking football and will be going for the win here so there is potential for this to be a good game. The bookies are having a hard time deciding on a favourite for it but there are reasons why Las Palmas look the more likely victors.

For starters their home record in recent times has been very good. They haven’t lost any of their last 10 home matches in La Liga so the Estadio de Gran Canaria is starting to feel like a bit of a fortress. This match takes place exactly one year on from their 2-0 home defeat to Deportivo La Coruna last season. It’s a significant date as since then they haven’t lost at home in La Liga to anyone other than Barcelona, Real Madrid or Atleti. They are averaging 2 points per game at home this season while Athletic average just 1.17 on their travels so the hosts do look the more likely victors.

Athletic have lost 63% of their away games this season in all competitions so they really haven’t looked comfortable on their travels. A trip to Gran Canaria has the feel of a European game too, given it’s close to a 3 hour flight from the Basque Country and it comes just 4 days after their Europa League game on Thursday so fatigue could also be an issue for the visitors.

Therefore, in what looks like it will be close game, there are a few factors that might just swing it the way of the hosts, who’ve been playing some really good football this term. Only 4 sides have scored more goals than them and with Athletic not totally convincing defensively, backing Las Palmas 0.0 Asian Handicap at 9/10 looks to offer the best value here.
