Ath Bilbao vs Betis Prediction & Betting tips
Athletic comes to draw with Villarreal in their league match of the last day (1-1), meeting in which the Bilbao team left very good feelings. With this result the Athletic accumulates a streak of 6 consecutive games without losing (3 wins and 3 draws), a dynamic that is serving to move away from the descending positions steadily, but slowly, as it accumulates 23 points, just 3 above the first team in descent, the Rayo Vallecano with 20.
These good feelings that he is leaving are transferred to his performance as a local, where he also remains unbeaten in the last 5 matches he has played in San Mamés (2 wins and 3 draws), a situation that makes Athletic come into this game with enough morals to get another victory or, at least, score. And in 10 games he has played at home he has only lost 2 games (3 wins and 5 draws), although on the other hand they have been matches with very few goals (only 11 goals in his favor).
The figures of Athletic Bilbao in the Santander League:
– Ranked in 14th position with 23 points after 20 days played.
– At home he has 3 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses with 11 goals in favor and 12 against.
– As a visitor he has 1 win, 6 draws and 3 losses with 10 goals in favor and 14 against.
As for the line-up, Athletic will have the losses of Íñigo Lekue [operated on hernia (indefinite loss)], of Mikel Rico [rupture of the peroneal tendon (undefined loss)] and of Aritz Aduriz [contusion on the knee]; as well as the doubt of Raúl García [discomfort in the twin].
The Betis comes from 1-1 draw their first leg of the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey against Espanyol, game in which the home team was slightly higher and where the green team generated more danger on set pieces. On the other hand, last weekend Betis ended a streak of 3 consecutive games without winning the league, a victory that slows down its descent in the table and gives you options to return to European positions if you win and its main rival, Getafe, does not.
As a visitor Betis is showing very irregular in recent games, where he accumulates an alternation of defeat-victory in the last 5 games he has played away from home, although the last 2 victories he has achieved have been with thrashing, a 3- 4 against FC Barcelona and 1-3 against Espanyol. Despite this, their goalscorers remain at a low level, since in 9 games as a visitor has scored 10 goals and has conceded 11, something that shows that Betis has not found a way to be really competitive when playing at home .
The figures of Real Betis in the Santander League:
– Ranked in 7th position with 29 points after 20 days played.
– At home he has 5 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses with 15 goals in favor and 14 against.
– As a visitor he has 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses with 10 goals in favor and 11 against.
As for the lineup, Betis will not have any confirmed off this day but will have the doubts of Francis Guerrero [discomfort undetermined], Joaquín Sánchez [discomfort undetermined] and Junior Firpo [injury in the rectum above].
