Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca
Date: 11 September 2021, Saturday
Kick-Off: 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: San Mamés Barria.
Athletic Bilbao welcome Mallorca at the San Mamés as they look to push themselves even further following their 1-0 win in the hands of Celta Vigo and re-start their season after the international break.
The hosts currently sit in 9th position on the table after 3 league games with 5 points on board.
Athletic Club come on the back of a 1-0 win away from home to Celta Vigo. Inaki Williams scored a 34th minute goal which was enough to help Bilbao seal all three points.
They will be looking to seal yet another victory and go in the top four of the table, provided that the other results go their way.
On the other hand, Mallorca currently sit in 6th position in the table with 7 points on board after 3 league games.
There are 6 teams with 7 points on board and Mallorca are only behind on goal difference.
Their league form has been going upward as they drew their first game 1-1 against Real Betis, won against Alaves 1-0 in match week 2.
The visitors come on the back of a 1-0 win against Espanyol in match week 3 and they are high in confidence.
Against Espanyol, Dani Rodríguez scored a goal in the 27th minute of the game to keep Mallorca in competition for the UEFA Europa League.

Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca Prediction
The last time Bilbao played at home, they drew 1-1 against Barcelona. Their style of play and attacking threat was too much for Barcelona’s defense to handle. They scored just once, but they are a good side who have a lot of goals in them.
Hence, we back the odds at 1.72 for Bilbao to win at full time.
At the same time, we expect their striker Inaki Williams to get on the score sheet anytime during the game. He can be backed at the 2.87 odds which I believe is the best value bet for this Spanish La Liga encounter.
