Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: San Mames Barria, Bilbao.

The 12th round of Spanish La Liga is going to be opened on Friday evening at San Mames where Athletic Bilbao welcomes Celta Vigo.

Hosts are hoping to extend the good run and keep progressing towards Europa League spot. They have collected four points from the last two games and advanced to 9th place.

Performances at this venue have always been much better for Bilbao than away days, so expectations are high.

Their opponents are currently sitting in the relegation zone after gathering only ten points from eleven matches.

However, squad from Vigo has finally ended bad streak of results last weekend with 3-1 home win against Granada. Bilbao are warm favorites for the win priced at 2.20 odds.

Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Gaizka Gaitano’s squad was so close to win all three points last weekend against Getafe, but they conceded an equalizer just fifteen minutes before the final whistle. Athletic Bilbao have more than decent score at this stadium – three wins and one loss so far. They were only defeated by Cadiz, while collecting three points versus Levante, Sevilla and Betis. Inaki Williams is probably going to be key man in efforts to beat Celta Vigo.

Celta Vigo had rough time in La Liga in the last 40 days. They collected only five points from the last eight divisional games. There is consistency when it comes to scoring lately though, bagging at least one goal in last five encounters. BTTS is going to be our primary selection at 1.95 rate. Home win and both teams to score is reserved for more adventurous punters.
