Athletic Bilbao will win

Athletic Bilbao – Alaves Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 12:30

The club from Bilbao is playing in the highest Spanish division since its founded in 1928 and is next to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona for a longest period of time in the Primera Division. Athletic de Bilbao used to play until 2012 in the San Mames stadium (also known as La Catedral). Athletic Club (mostly known as Athletic de Bilbao) is a Spanish football club from the Bask region which is playing currently in the Primera Division.

San Mames Barria will host a small Basque derby between Athletic Club and Deportivo Alaves. The Lions are a real force to be reckoned with at home and given Deportivo Alaves poor performance in a 1-0 loss to Sevilla, we are tempted to put our money on Inaki Williams and Co. Athletic Club aim to extend their unbeaten run in the 2019/2020 La Liga campaign and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth clean sheet of the season.

As expected, Alaves were beaten by Atletico Madrid at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in their last league match, with the team dropping to fifth place in the standings. Los Babazorros are a real force to be reckoned with at home and you should bear in mind that they are undefeated at their Estadio de Mendizorroza this term. Athletic Club experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Levante in Valencia and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts, who defeated the likes of Real Madrid and Villarreal at home earlier this term. The Lions, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 16. Estadio de Mendizorroza will host Mondays football game between Deportivo Alaves and Athletic Club, the two Basque clubs.

They are one of just two sides yet to lose at home this season in the Spanish top flight and given that and Athletics general struggles, all the value here looks to lie with then hosts. Alaves meanwhile have been very solid at home this term, conceding just 0.71 goals per game on average in front of their own fans.

Athletic Bilbao vs Deportivo Alaves Stats

That may not exactly be the recipe for a classic here but Basque derbies are always fascinating in their own way and itll be interesting to see if Athletic have the creativity to open Alaves up if they do come here with a park the bus attitude. The similarities between these two coaches go beyond their shared surnames with both placing great emphasis on hard work and sold defensive foundations.

The Lions, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 16. Los Babazorros are a real force to be reckoned with at home and you should bear in mind that they are undefeated at their Estadio de Mendizorroza this term.

Athletic Club experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Levante in Valencia and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts, who defeated the likes of Real Madrid and Villarreal at home earlier this term.

Los Babazorros booked their place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on four occasions and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy. Anyhow, that is still regarded as the clubs biggest success. The color of Alaves home kit is blue and white and the clubs local rivals are fellow Basque sides Real Sociedad, Athletic Club, Osasuna and Eibar. Alaves made it to the UEFA CUP final in 2001, but they were beaten by Liverpool 5-4 in a thrilling football clash.

They did not shine against an in-form Girona side seven days ago in La Liga, but still managed to snatch a last-gasp win via stoppage-time penalty from the star man Aritz Aduriz. The story is completely opposite with the visitors. They advanced into the last 16 round of Copa del Rey in some style aging eight goals without conceding a single over two legs against Huesca. They opened the new season in a poor fashion, but they seem to have found the right form. The Lions head into this off the back of two consecutive clean sheet wins over Huesca and Girona.

Athletic Bilbao vs Alaves Correct Score Prediction

Alaves will have to stop him from giving the confidence boost if they want something from this game. By looking at their results this year, it seems more likely. We dont see many goals in their encounters, so a tight match is probably expected. An interesting thing is that Bilbaos Raul Garcias last three league goals were all scored before the 20th minute. Both Athletic Bilbao and Alaves started their La Liga campaign by recording solid results. They have only 4 wins from the last 13 games played away from home. These two teams have a lot of history behind them, with many Head-to-Head matches. On the other side, Alaves is not a great away team. Ath Bilbao is in a great form at home, they are without a loss for 14 consecutive games. By looking at all of these facts, they point to the probable Ath Bilbao win.

They are yet to lose this season with two home wins and two away draws to show for their efforts so far. They were perhaps a bit fortunate to come away with a point from their trip to Mallorca last time out, although in truth they would have left slightly disappointed after Aritz Aduriz missed a last minute penalty that would have seen Athletic move to the top of the table. Gaizka Garitano has done a fantastic job with Athletic.
