Athletic Bilbao vs Leganés – La Liga : Bilbao: Making a disappointing campaign so far, Bilbao is far from once again fighting for a spot in the Europa League
They are 11 points behind the current 6th place right now. The team is inclusively coming off a loss on the 1st leg of the Europa League, 3-1, against Marseille in France
and they will decide their fate on the competition at home, already on next Wednesday, which is an aspect that might influence this match here, since their manager might rest some players.
Usually always very strong at home, this season the team has been making a weak campaign, winning only 4 of their 13 matches at home.
Leganés: Making a campaign similar to Bilbao’s, having 1 more point than them, Leganés is actually making a reasonable campaign within their ambitions.
With the main objective of avoiding relegation from the top tier, the team is on a tranquil position and can even look for a better position. After 5 winless matches, the team has beaten the last place Málaga by 2-0 on the last round.
We’ll have a match between two teams without many ambitions the league: Bilbao is far from the top pack, having their attentions turned to another competition,
deciding whether they advance or not onto the next stage of the Europa League on Wednesday, against Marseille, right here at their own stadium.
As for Leganés, relaxed regarding relegation, they have the main objective of looking to finish in the best possible position of the league table.
Athletic Bilbao vs Leganés – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I see Leganés being the more interested team in this match, whilst, besides making a poor campaign at home, Bilbao will certainly have their heads on the Europa League and on the next match, which means they could rest some of their starters here.
Besides that, Leganés has already caused some surprises playing away from home, like the 2-1 win against Real Madrid on the Copa del Rey, which culminated on the team advancing onto the next stage. With that, I see a lot of value on the DNB favouring Leganés here.
