Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Like the odds suggest, this Wednesday at the San Mamés, I expect to see a close match, so I see more value on the goals’ market.
Valencia has already played 33 matches this season, and except for the duels against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético, they only failed to score in 2 matches.
But if the Ché side delivers offensively, the same can’t be said on a defensive level, since they have conceded goals in 19 of the last 20 matches they’ve played.
Athletic Bilbao at home isn’t as strong as they were in previous years, but still, and already having ensured their presence on the Europa League’s 8th finals, I believe they can cause Valencia some troubles, with both teams scoring in this match.
