Eibar vs Ath Bilbao Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this day of Sunday is the one that Eibar and Athletic Bilbao will play for a new date of the Santander League.
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, as the two teams can be neutralized during much of the 90 ‘minutes of play. For this reason, if we consider that the venue has always been difficult to overcome in your stadium, we advise you to play a few euros to the pure draw. Remember that the “Lions” are shot, being unlikely to be affected too much the game back to Panathinaikos by the Europa League.
Take into account that Eibar arrives toned to this game after defeating 0-1 to Malaga in the Rose Garden last Monday. The team was collective and offensive at times, managing to reach the opposite arc. Now his objective is to be collective in the mark to stop a rival that usually attacks in the other.
On the other hand do not forget that the Basque team added acceptable results as a local in the last tournament, despite some stumbling blocks to higher level rivals. Therefore, it should not be surprising that he has almost always won rivals of equal or lesser value. His objective is to maintain this characteristic, which allowed him to be entertaining and a complicated rival to overcome.
Ath Bilbao :
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Athletic Bilbao comes from playing against Panathinaikos for the Europa League. In the Spanish tournament debuted with an unexpected equality against Getafe, which was about to break in the final minutes of the game. In spite of this stumbling block, it is still competitive thanks to its dynamic style and intensity.
To conclude we tell you that the “Lions” always complicated their rivals as visitors, despite lacking defensive solvency. The problem of those directed by Valverde was his lack of balance between lines. Now with Ziganda like DT they will look for to change the history and to be more cohesive when they act in this condition.
After all this I play for equality because of the following reasons: First because the two teams are even and can be neutralized, despite having different football styles. Therefore, it is not surprising that the process is fought and intense in the midfield. Second because Eibar started the championship well, showing a more than positive performance against Malaga in the Rosaleda. It is hoped that it will be able to repeat its collective work. And third, because Athletic Bilbao, even when it can get tired of the return match against Panathinaikos, remains a rival of respect when it acts as a visitor. Faced with this reality, we believe that the game can finish 1-1 or 2-2. Do not rule out a 0-0 closed and rough.
