Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo Predictions
Results overall have been inconsistent for Athletic Bilbao. Still, the hosts have slowly made improvements in the last few weeks as they’ve won three of their previous six matches, which, upon first glance, doesn’t appear to be too great, but is better than their solitary win from their opening four games of the season. Athletic Bilbao suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Cadiz in their opening home game, but they’ve since registered three wins on the trot with victories recorded against Levante 2-0, Sevilla 2-1, and the aforementioned 4-0 thrashing of Real Betis. Unai Vencedor has found the right role in the team, he is moving great, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Iker Muniain has excellent control of the ball, and he can play in several positions. Asier Villalibre enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He does great in the penalty area.
Celta Vigo finds themselves in a disappointing position near the foot of the La Liga table as the visitors sit third from bottom ahead of this tough-looking trip to Bilbao on Friday night. Still, they’ll be doing so on the back of a 3-1 home win against Granada. However, that recent win ended a miserable run of eight matches without a win in the Spanish top-flight, which included five defeats in the shape of Barcelona, Osasuna, Atletico Madrid, Real Sociedad, and Sevilla, respectively. In addition, draws with Real Valladolid, Levante, and Elche have seen Celta Vigo pick up useful points. Still, these haven’t been enough to lift the visitors out of the bottom three of La Liga, while their form on the road continues to be a major concern. Celta Vigo has managed to pick up just two wins out of their last 37 matches on their travels, which is an extremely poor record that has been registered at Villarreal and Real Sociedad and includes a total of 19 losses as well. Iago Aspas is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. Santi Mina plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Athletic Bilbao is the big favorite in this match, and the home team is expected to win.
This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams. Football fans should enjoy this match and see at least a goal in each net.
