Athletic Bilbao will aim to build on their recent La Liga triumph when they make the trip to the Estadio de Mendizorroza to take on Alaves on Monday night. Alaves have suffered a thrashing 3-0 away loss at Atletico Madrid last weekend despite the fact they had a better ball possession than the hosts. On the flip side, Athletic Bilbao managed a narrow 1-0 home victory over Girona thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Aritz Aduriz. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Alaves have had a great La Liga campaign so far this season, but their recent run of form has been pretty poor. They come into this tie on the back of a four-game winless streak across all competitions, losing three in the process. Despite their recent inconsistency, Alaves still sit 5th in the La Liga table with 24 points to their name after 15 league outings.
Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao have had an awful start to the season, but they looked much better of late. The Basques have suffered just one loss in their last six games across all competitions. Bilbao enter the fray on the back of a two-game winning run, including a narrow 1-0 home victory against Girona last time out in the league. This lifts Bilbao in 18th spot in the standings tied on 14 points with 17th-placed Villarreal.
Alaves have been excellent on home soil this season and we think that they will grab all three points here. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Alaves to win at odds 2.70.
