In a contest that could easily turn out to be another low-scoring contest on Friday night, Athletic Bilbao will host Alaves when this weekend’s La Liga fixtures open up.
Starting with the hosts, once again having to settle for a single point last time out, Athletic Bilbao have struggled with their consistency since opening the 2021/22 campaign. In their first seven La Liga matchups so far this season, they have recorded two wins, four draws and just a single defeat, scoring six and conceding four in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 10, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 10th in the standings and holding a two-point buffer from dropping out of the top-half. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 1-1 draw away at Valencia, Athletic Bilbao have failed to win any of their last three La Liga matchups. Likewise, it should also be noted that Friday’s hosts have seen six of their opening seven top-flight fixtures finish with under 2.5 goals.
As for the visitors, managing to bring an end to their woeful start to the 2021/22 campaign with a stunning victory last time out, Alaves will be desperate to build off of that momentum. In their first seven La Liga contests so far this season, they have recorded just a single win against five defeats, scoring two and conceding 11 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of three from a possible 18, it should also be noted that they hold the joint-worst attacking tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen landing a stunning 1-0 win against defending La Liga champions Atletico Madrid, that result brought an end to their five-match losing run. In a contest that could see chances come at a real premium this weekend, we’re backing under 2.5 goals here.
