Athletic Bilbao 4/5 to win against Valencia in the Europa League tonight
Competition: Europa League
Market: Athletic Bilbao to win against Valencia
Odds: 4/5 @ Coral
It’s an all-Spanish La Liga affair at the San Mamés Stadium tonight as Athletic Bilbao host Valencia in the first leg of the Europa League last-16. The Basque side are favourites to come out on top against Gary Neville’s Valencia outfit to take an aggregate lead to the second leg at the Mestalla.
Bilbao are in fine form in their domestic league ahead of tonight’s clash, winning three on the bounce and conceding just one goal. Valencia are one of the sides they’d beaten in recent weeks too, so they have bragging rights coming into this evening’s meeting. Their home form has been solid too.
Ernesto Valverde’s men have lost only once in their own backyard in their last 10 league games. Bilbao have actually beaten Valencia twice in La Liga this season, and the inconsistent form of the visitors could well see them coming out on top a third time. Los Che have lost two of their last three in the league, but have impressed in Europe.
After elimination from the Champions League, Gary Neville’s side thrashed Rapid Vienna in the last-32 to make it this far. However, Bilbao having home advantage as well as their record against Valencia this season sees Coral giving odds of 4/5 for the Basque outfit to see past Los Che.
