Ath Bilbao vs Alaves Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this day of Sunday is the one that will dispute Athletic Bilbao and Alavés for a new date of the Santander League.
Ath Bilbao :
In my opinion, the Basque side leaves as a favorite due to the offensive potential that it has, which always reflects when it acts in the new San Mamés. For this reason and even when you are having problems of effectiveness in the face of the goal, we advise you to play a few euros to the simple triumph of the premises. At stake is to climb positions in the table and move away from the direct descent.
Take into account that Athletic Bilbao beat Betis 0-2 as a visitor, reaching a total of 21 units. The team has registered 2 wins and 3 draws in their last 5 presentations, improving little by little their level of spirit and football. His goal in the short term is to maintain this regularity to get away from the descent and sneak into the fight to qualify for the next Europa League.
On the other hand do not forget that the Basque team has added not very encouraging results playing in the New San Mamés, after winning 2 matches, match another 4 and lose the remaining two that played there (5 goals in favor and 5 against). It comes to equal 1-1 against Villarreal, to draw 0-0 against Real Madrid and to equal 0-0 the Basque classic against Real Sociedad.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Alavés beat Málaga 1-0 at home and added 15 points in the general table. He has added 3 wins and 1 loss in his last 4 presentations, noticing a mental and football improvement. Thanks to this good run is firm in the fight to get away from the direct descent.
And finally we tell you that the visit has recorded negative results playing away from home, after winning 2 games and losing the remaining 6 that he played (6 goals scored and 12 received in his goal). It comes from beating 2-3 to Girona on the hour and to fall 1-0 against Atlético de Madrid.
After all that I said the game for a victory of the local box due to the following reasons: First because Athletic Bilbao is an intense and vertical midnight forward, with its goal to improve its effectiveness in the face of goal. It is enough to know that he has not won his last 4 presentations in the new San Mamés to corroborate this statement (1 loss and 3 consecutive parities). Second, because the Basque side will try to handle the ball from the initial whistle, trying to break the iron defense of its rival. And third because Alavés has lost 6 of his 8 starts, costing him to stand up well in this condition. Faced with this reality and knowing that the “Lions” need to get away from the direct descent, we believe they can win even by one goal difference.
