Athletic Bilbao vs Getafe
Spain La Liga
Date: Monday, 25 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: San Mames Barria, Bilbao.
Athletic Bilbao will return to the league duties on Monday night when they play host to Getafe in the last game of the round in La Liga.
The Leones will come into the game encouraged with a couple of magnificent displays in the Spanish Super Cup last week. They saw off both Real Madrid and Barcelona to lift the trophy and boost up the confidence ahead of the second part of the season.
Marcelino’s men backed up the huge success with a Copa del Rey victory over lower-division Ibiza on Thursday evening (1-2).
Getafe will also enter the match at San Mames Barria in high spirits. They picked up back-to-back wins over Elche and Huesca in La Liga, conceding just once in the process.
The Azulones generally play tight at the back and can be very tough to break down on their day. Can they keep the positive run of results against an in-form Bilbao side?
Athletic Bilbao vs Getafe Head-to-head
- Draw has been the most common of the outcomes in the head to head history between these two sides.
- It happened on 12 occasions in 31 games. Bilbao claimed 10 wins, while Getafe managed 9 in the process.

- The teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they last locked horns in November last year at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
- Getafe are unbeaten in the last seven clashes against Los Leones.
Athletic Bilbao vs Getafe Prediction
The visitors will likely sit carefully at the back and wait for their opportunities from counter attacks, knowing how great Bilbao have looked in the recent Super Cup ties.
Getafe have been part of low-scoring games of late as four of their last five games in all competitions have ended with fewer than two goals scored.
Looking at the head to head tradition, we have more than enough reasons to call the Under 2.5 goals FT bet a banker at the 1.40 odds.
Braver punters can try with the Under 1.5 goals FT at 2.30 or the Under 0.5 goals in the first half at the 2.20 odds.
We would, however, not be surprised to see the hosts snatching a late winner on the back of strong performances in the last couple of weeks. The HT/FT Draw/Athletic Bilbao looks as a decent shout at the sky-high 5.00 odds.
