Athletic Bilbao 2/1 to beat Espanyol in Sunday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Athletic Bilbao to beat Espanyol
Odds: 2/1 @ Bet365
La Liga returns for yet another massive round of games this weekend as the league continues to heat up. Every manager will want to see their side take to the field and earn all three points to help their season-long objective, and with all of this in mind, Athletic Bilbao travel to face Espanyol.
Espanyol have been struggling this season and they are in need of a run of wins to get out of the trouble they have found themselves in. After 18 games they have won six, drawn five and lost seven times, while they have scored just 15 goals and conceded 21 times. In their last five games they have lost twice, drawn once, and won twice, with their two wins coming in their last two games. The 23 points they have picked up means they are eight clear of the relegation zone, but they will want to make this buffer even bigger with another win.
Athletic Bilbao have been in fine form this season and they are looking to push up the table with another win. After 18 games they have won six, lost six and drawn six, while they have scored 20 times and conceded 19 goals. In their last five games they have won four and drawn once, helping them onto 24 points for the season so far. Bilbao are just four points behind Villarreal in the final European spot, meaning that if they can continue their fine run of form, then they may just secure Europa League football for next season.
