Athletic Bilbao are still aiming to put their La Liga campaign back on track when they welcome Valladolid at the San Mames Barria on Saturday night. Athletic Bilbao drew nil-nil on the road at Alaves at the weekend, although they looked pretty good in the first half. Valladolid, on the other hand, lost 2-3 at home against Atletico Madrid. They did well to come back from two goals down and to level the score thanks to a goal from Fernando Calero and an own-goal from Saul, but they have conceded a third goal in the last ten minutes of the game. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Athletic Bilbao have finally found some consistency of late, having lost just once in their last six competitive outings. In addition, the Basques looked decent on home soil over the past two months as they are currently on a four-game unbeaten streak. Furthermore, Bilbao have won three of their last five home meetings with Valladolid, while losing just once.
Valladolid, on the flip side, have had a decent start to the season, but they showed signs of weakness of late. The minnows have lost three of their last five competitive outings, including a narrow 2-3 home defeat against Atletico Madrid at the weekend. The positive thing is that Valladolid have been a solid side on the road throughout this competitive season, having lost just two of their nine trips.
We fancy Athletic Bilbao to win here as they have been more than decent at home of late and they also hold a strong head-to-head record against Valladolid. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Athletic Bilbao to win at odds 1.70.
