Alaves vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview

Deportivo Alaves have seen a very unpredictable spell of form through most part of the campaign and this sees them in the bottom part of the table with a four-point gap to 10th placed rivals as they host Athletic Bilbao for their Matchday 25 clash on Sunday afternoon.

Babazorros beat Eibar (2-1) last time out in front of the home fans and ended a four-match winless streak at this ground but they’ve since seen a disappointing 1-0 loss struggling Mallorca, which makes it a task for Asier Garitano to lift his men’s spirits once again.

Athletic Bilbao have seen woes of their own and they haven’t been able to connect any two same results since draws against Real Madrid (0-0) and Sevilla (1-1) in December and January, respectively. They come into the match after seeing Osasuna (0-1) deny them points at San Mames Barria and struggles for goalscoring consistency have been obvious.

Lions have proven themselves a very tough nut to crack on the road, though, and the narrow loss they’ve seen at Real Sociedad (2-1) was their only first since early December. They earned four wins and three draws across competitions and going back to the unbeaten streak will be crucial.

We do expect a very narrow occasion at Mendizorroza Stadium too and we’ll now stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils, going for a Draw at 2/1 with bet365 and hoping both will come very motivated to snatch points.

We don’t really feel we should be in for many goals, though, and we’ve been used to such occasions in head-to-head clashes of recent. We’re thus also backing a low-scoring game with Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes off as a banker bet at 4/9 with William Hill.
