Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad Prediction

Having lost only one of their last five home matches in the schedule, Athletic Club enjoys the ground advantage in the game and good use of it. Their last two unbeaten games will also improve the morale of the players in the middle.

On the contrary, Real Sociedad had a rocketing start to the campaign this season. La Real was topping the table in recent weeks but has been dropping points recently. They are at a better position in the league table than the host, which puts them in a favorable spot in the upcoming match.

We can expect a couple of goals in the clash with both teams showing promise in the fixture. The tip for over 1.5 goals will serve the purpose from the goals area. Besides, the double chance favoring both teams will probably be the best bet as the match is sizing to be anyone’s game.
