Athletic Bilbao 3/4 to beat Malaga in Sunday’s La Liga encounter
Competition: La Liga
Market: Athletic Bilbao to beat Malaga
Odds: 3/4 @ Bet365
La Liga continues this weekend for yet another round of games that will bring more goals and excitement. The league table has remained incredibly tight with a single win often able to help a team move up a number of places. With this in mind, Athletic Bilbao host Malaga on Sunday.
Athletic Bilbao have struggled this season and they will be looking to finish the campaign strongly. After 24 games they have won six, drawn 10 and lost eight, while they have scored 24 goals and conceding 27 times. In their last five they have not won a single game, losing twice and drawing three times, which has seen them onto 28 points. Their current tally means they are 10 points clear of the relegation zone, but they are also 10 short of Villarreal in sixth, meaning they are likely to end up in relative anonymity in midtable.
Malaga have struggled massively this year and they are the favourites to go down. After 24 games they have won three, drawn four and lost 17, while they have only scored 15 goals and conceded 38 times. In their last five they have lost three and drawn twice which has seen them onto 13 points. Their current tally means they are seven short of Levante and safety, and if they have serious aspirations of escaping danger, then they must start to pick up points. For Athletic Bilbao this is a must win as confidence will be incredibly low if they fall to a defeat against the league’s bottom side.
