Athletic Bilbao 5/4 to beat Mallorca in Friday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Athletic Bilbao win
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
Looking to continue on what has been a very bright start to the new La Liga campaign, Athletic Bilbao will travel to Mallorca on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Mallorca may have secured a 2-1 win over Eibar in their La Liga opener, the Reds have shown some signs of a struggle. Losing back-to-back domestic matches against both Real Sociedad and Valencia, they could also only suffer a 2-0 loss against Poblense in last weeks friendly matchup. A huge part of their recent issues has come down to their struggles in the final third. Mallorca may now failed to find the net in any of their last three defeats across any competition and it is also worth noting that they have won just one of their last seven matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, continuing to build off a bright summer, Athletic Bilbao have their sights set on securing a European return this season. In their opening three La Liga contests, they have recorded two wins and a single draw with no defeats to their name. Also securing a 2-1 win over Toulouse in last weeks friendly contest, the White and Reds have won four of their last five matches across all competitions and are enjoying a six-match unbeaten run. It is also worth noting that Bilbao have lost just one of their last nine matches on the road.
