Athletic Bilbao vs Las Palmas – La Liga: Athletic Bilbao hosts Las Palmas at home in La Liga
And they are dreaming about re-entering the fight for the continental spots.
On the league table, their situation isn’t very good. The team occupies the 13th place with 27 points conquered.
But in terms of points, a victory could leave Bilbao only 3 points away from the Europa League fight.
The team’s moment of form isn’t good. They are winless for 4 matches in La Liga. But the biggest downside for Bilbao on the season is the excessive number of draws.
Bilbao is the 2nd team with most draws on this edition of the competition and that is generally fatal in terms of points. This difference rightly explains why Bilbao failed to be on the fight for the Continental spots so far.

The truth is that the home advantage has been helping out Las Palmas on the last couple of rounds.
The wins over Málaga and Valencia have once again given them hopes of salvation, and the team is currently only 3 points away from the first team outside the relegation zone.
But away from home, Las Palmas has a terrible record. And they will now face a Bilbao that despite making a disappointing campaign, have only lost twice as hosts.
Athletic Bilbao vs Las Palmas – Betting Tip and Prediction:
In that sense, I believe that the pattern will repeat itself here. Bilbao is always strong and against a Las Palmas that is usually very weak away from home, they should be able to win scoring at least 2 goals.
