Athletic Bilbao vs Malaga: Preview and Predictions

Athletic Bilbao vs Malaga
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 25 February 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK
Venue: San Mames Barria (Bilbao).

Athletic Bilbao missed their suspended talisman Aritz Aduriz badly in the last couple of fixtures as they’ve failed to produce in three consecutive games in La Liga. The Spanish striker was rested in Thursday’s reverse fixture of the Europa League R32 tie with Spartak Moscow (Bilbao advanced in spite of losing the rematch 1-2 at home) and he is expected to lead the Basques up front on Sunday when they host the rock-bottomed Malaga side.

Overall, it has been a dreadful couple of months for the Lions who are winless in last six league matches. Jose Angel Ziganda will thus be desperate to see his men rebounding from these failures here and the opposition is actually the perfect for this mission.

Malaga sit at the very foot of the league standings and they are just not pulling up any trees at this stage. The Anchovies are seven points shy of safety after losing three on the bounce in Primera Division and they’ll face hard times avoiding the defeat at San Mames in spite of Bilbao’s slower run of form of late. Malaga have scored just one goal on last four travels in the league and given that Bilbao have kept their net untouched in four of last five league matches at home, we can hardly see this poor streak ending for the visitors.

Athletic Bilbao vs Malaga: Head-to-head

Bilbao lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of their 36th encounter with Malaga.

The Anchovies have won only 2 of 17 matches at San Mames.

The clash from this term of La Liga saw the teams share spoils in a six-goal thriller at La Rosaleda.

Athletic Bilbao vs Malaga: Prediction

Bilbao are worth backing at the 1.75 odds here given that Malaga have lost 10 of 12 away matches in this term of Primera Division.

We also see the value in backing the hosts to keep their net untouched as they’ve shipped only a single goal in last five league matches in front of the home crowd.

Athletic Bilbao vs Malaga: Bet Tips

Athletic Bilbao to win @ 1.75

Athletic Bilbao to keep a clean sheet @ 2.00.
