Reason for Atletic Bilbao vs Alaves Predictions
Ath Bilbao has won ten and played four of the previous 11 games in a draw at the top of the LaLiga table, so this does not seem to agree. Bilbao rarely participates in exciting matches, with the last 11 games, they have scored two goals or less, but that approach has served them well during the current campaign against Ath Bilbao. Less than three goals per match have been seen in 5 of the last six games in which Athletic Bilbao participated. In terms of goal distribution in this period, the opposing teams scored a total of 4, while Athletic Bilbao scored a total of 6. We will soon find out if this trend will continue here as well. Peru Nolascoain (Ankle Injury) and Oihan Sancet (Knee Problems) will be out of the selection for this match. Iker Muniain has great ball control and can play in several positions. Asier Villalibre enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is doing great in the penalty area.
Alaves have found the going extremely tough on their top-flight travels of late, with the strugglers suffering ten consecutive defeats as part of a run that has seen them secure just one point from a possible 36. Alaves are rarely involved in away games in which both teams find the net, with this being the case in just one of their previous seven trips in the LaLiga. Looking at their form, and Alaves have been scored against in 5 of their last six matches, letting opponents get 11 goals in all. At the back, Alaves have clearly had some problems. Due to a fully healthy group ready to go, the Alaves boss Javier Calleja does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game. Mamadou Loum Ndiaye has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Luis Rioja enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Alaves is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Athletic Bilbao should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
