Athletic Bilbao 4/6 to beat Alaves in Sunday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Athletic Bilbao to beat Alaves
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet365
Spain’s top league is back for another huge weekend of footballing action as every side in the competition is looking to add three hugely valuable points to their tally for the season so far. With all of this in mind, Athletic Bilbao host Alaves on Sunday.
Atheltic Bilbao have been struggling this season and they need a number of wins if they are to escape the jaws of the relegation zone. After 17 matches they have won five, drawn six and lost six, scoring 18 goals and conceding 19 times. In their last five they have won twice and drawn three, meaning they are unbeaten, but they are still only six points clear of the relegation zone despite this run. It is clear that Bilbao need to turn their draws into wins if they are to climb up the table further.
Alaves have been struggling massively this season and they desperately need a win if they are to revive their ailing campaign. After 17 games they have won five and lost 12 times, scoring just 13 goals and conceding 25 times. In their last five games they have three wins and two defeats which has helped the side onto 15 points for the season, but they need to go further, with another string of wins likely to help them massively. They are currently level on points with Deportivo in 18th, spared the relegation zone by their goal difference, and a poor run of games would likely see them sink into the bottom three. With this in mind, we are backing Athletic Bilbao with odds of 4/6 from Bet365.
