Villarreal vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview
Athletic Bilbao have ended their five-match winless streak with a comfortable home win over Espanyol (3-0) midway through the week and they travel to Villarreal hoping to build on the performance, desperate for points to keep up with La Liga’s top 4 as they sit four behind Atletico Madrid.
Los Leones struggled to put on such displays in the final third when away from home, though, and this will be more worrying. They failed to find the net in three of their last four away games, including a goalless draw at Mallorca as well as losses to Celta Vigo (1-0) and Atleti (2-0) – only holding off troubled Leganes (1-1) along the way.
Villarreal will now hope to capitalize on such woes and bag all three points, garnering similar hopes to those of Bilbao. They saw a 2-1 loss at Eibar midway through the week, though, and Javi Calleja now has to find a quick fix after a last-gasp winner conceded at Ipurua Municipal Stadium.
Yellow Submarine have earned six points in two games beforehand, beating Espanyol (0-1) and Alaves (4-1), and we’ve seen them very confident at this ground lately. This surely puts them in a better spot at this point and we feel they will be able to build on it, as they keep up with the top of the table with a quarter of the campaign behind us.
We will thus back them to their fourth home win in a row here and we’ll go for it at 17/20 with William Hill, which seems like great value – especially seeing Bilbao’s struggles to turn away clashes their way even with less challenging rivals lately.
We have seen the visitors in fine form up front earlier this week, though, and we hope they can build on it here. With that in mind, we’re hoping for excitement which we’ve been used to in the sides’ head-to-head clashes, as we go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 19/20 with bet365.
