Athletic Bilbao vs Deportivo Alaves Stats

  • Athletic Bilbao have been in fine form and sit 4th with eight points to their name early on

  • The sides shared the spoils in both of the last season’s two head-to-head clashes

Athletic Bilbao vs Deportivo Alaves Match Preview

Athletic Bilbao have been hard to beat early in the new campaign and sit just two points behind La Liga pace-setters Sevilla after four games played, having earned eight along the way. They now host Deportivo Alaves for their Matchday 5 clash hoping to build on such performances and show off at San Mames Barria once again.

Los Leones opened the campaign with a thriller 1-0 win over Barcelona and built on it with a confident win over Real Sociedad (2-0) at this ground, as well as draws at Getafe (1-1) and Mallorca (0-0 most recently). They’ve been tough defensively and based their success on such an approach, which promises more of the same in Bilbao.

Deportivo Alaves have, on the other hand, kicked it off with a win over Levante (1-0) but struggled to build on the Matchday 1 win – as they earned just two more points. They’ve seen Sevilla (0-1 loss at home ground) end their unbeaten streak and bouncing back quickly will be no easy task for Asier Garitano‘s men we feel.

Babazorros have been very tough to score against too, though, and they promise a strong challenge on the day. They’ve conceded just two goals in four outings and while the attacking line has consequently struggled to deliver, it feels the visitors will be very motivated to shut Athletic Bilbao down as well.

We don’t see them making it happen, though, and we’ll now rather stick with Athletic Bilbao to secure the points in front of the home crowd once again. We’ll thus go for a Home win, which feels like a real banker bet at 4/6 with Coral at this point.

We expect a tight contest and few goals, though, which will make their defensive setup all the more important here. With that in mind, we’re now also backing Bilbao to keep a clean sheet, which comes at 4/5 with William Hill and catches the eye of many value seekers.
