Athletic Bilbao vs Eibar Match Preview
Athletic Bilbao host Eibar for their Matchday 25 clash on Saturday evening looking to build on a couple of solid performances, where they held off Barcelona (0-0) at this ground and beat Huesca (0-1) on the road to escape the immediate danger zone.
Just a single goal from Raul Garcia proved enough for Los Leones to snatch the points at El Alcoraz but Gaizka Garitano’s men could need more now, despite a rock-solid defensive tally of recent – where they kept clean sheets in home clashes against Sevilla (2-0) and Betis (1-0) since mid-January.
Eibar boast an attacking approach to their fixtures and we’ve seen them prove a very tough side to outgun with it, as they suffered just one goal in last 11 outings across competitions – despite conceding 20 goals in the process – as the attacking line led by in-form Charles just keeps on giving.
Indeed, Los Armeros saw nothing but thrillers on their hands in February as they beat Girona (3-0) and held off both Sevilla (2-2) and Getafe (2-2) in two outings since, as Charles netted five of those six goals. They will now want to keep it up in Bilbao and we do see them doing so.
We’ll thus stick our necks out for the mid-table rivals to share the spoils and go for a Draw at 23/10 with William Hill, which feels like the best approach to the Saturday’s fixture.
We do expect goals and a more thrilling contest than we’ve gotten used to in Bilbao’s outings of recent, as we also back a Yes on Both teams to score at 19/20 with Paddy Power. We’ve seen Eibar forcing rivals into such clashes and now hope for more of the same.
