Athletic Bilbao vs Villarreal – La Liga: This Sunday night at the San Mamés, Bilbao hosts Villarreal…
In another match of La Liga’s 12th round.
Athletic Bilbao is currently in 15th place with 11 points gained, thanks to 3 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses. On the goals aspect, they have 11 goals scored and 15 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.4 goals per match.
Naturally, the Basques have better results when they play in front of their fans, but there is a stat that is been common throughout their last performances.
Whether they play at home or away from home, Bilbao has shown a big tendency to concede goals, only managing to keep a clean sheet in 1 out of the 8 rounds played so far
Villarreal has been having a good season, much like they’ve done for the past few years, occupying the 5th place in La Liga with 20 points gained.
On the 11 rounds played so far, they have 6 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, while having scored 18 goals and conceded 11.
They are on a pretty positive moment of form, getting 13 out of the last 15 possible points in La Liga.
Things are also going well on the European context, since they are leading their group in the Europa League.
Athletic Bilbao vs Villarreal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Villarreal is living an excellent moment of form and even playing at the San Mamés, which is a traditionally tough stadium to visit,
I believe they will be able to score at least one goal, something they only failed to do once on their last 8 official matches, and it was against Ponferradina in the Cup, since they rested the usual starters.
Athletic Bilbao has conceded goals in 11 out of the last 13 matches they played, so I see the Yellow Submarine taking advantage of the hosts’ poor defensive solidity.
