Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish LaLiga match on Saturday, 20 June 2020. Kick off 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET at the Estadio San Mames (Bilbao).
Athletic Bilbao is at the tenth spot in the league table with a five-point lead over Real Betis. The host has recently dropped points in their schedule and this clash will be an opportunity to turn back into winning ways in the campaign.
Bilbao has been unbeaten in their last four matches (2W 2D), following a 2-2- draw on the road with Eibar in the league last time out. Significantly, 7 of their 9 overall wins have come at home. Thus, we can see that the home ground is the strongest suit for ATH.
With only three losses in their 14 home matches in the campaign, Gaizka Garitano and his men will have more chances to create opportunities in the game. The host has scored 16 goals against 8 goals conceded in the same period. So, we can expect the visitors to struggle to find the nets in the clash.
Betis fell back in the league race after dropping points in four of the last five fixtures. They will visit after a 2-2 draw at home with Granada in their previous match in the campaign. While half of their trips in the league ended in defeats, only one of the remaining 7 turned into a victory in their 14 appearances.
The Verderones is on a two-game losing streak on the road and has been winless for the prior seven fixtures in the league. They have not scored goals in three of their recent five matches and only one of those trios had ended in a draw. Their lack of scoring away from home will aid the host.
The host is looking for a gradual climb in the league and the clash at home will be the best way to start collecting points in the match, especially against weaker sides in the table. Betis will probably have a hard time knocking down the home defense at Bilbao.
