Real Valladolid vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview
Athletic Bilbao travel to Valladolid for their Matchday 36 clash after failing to really capitalize on slip-ups from all four sides ahead of them on La Liga table, where they only shared the spoils with Deportivo Alaves at San Mames Barria last week.
Los Leones have, even more worryingly, had troubles on the road and win at Leganes (0-1) seen beforehand was their only third in eight trips – with four losses and a draw also on the records. They’ve struggled to score goals on the regular and this proved costly.
Real Valladolid have, on the other hand, finally looked more solid at the back but they come into the match after seeing Atletico Madrid (1-0) end their three-match unbeaten streak and send them back into the relegation zone as Girona jumped them in a real thriller at the bottom of the table.
Pucela have held Getafe (2-2) and Alaves (2-2) to thriller draws and beat Girona (1-0) narrowly at this ground in three outings beforehand, which should make Sergio’s task to lift their team spirits easier despite seven players sidelined with injuries.
We will back them to build on such records here and hold off the tough visitors, as we stick with a Double Chance – Home win or Draw at 8/15 with bet365. We’ve seen Bilbao struggling on the road and feel Valladolid have what it takes to hold off and possibly even beat them.
However, we feel they’ll still have to outgun the visitors to secure the points as this comes as an important moment for both sides and we go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 21/20 with William Hill.
