Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 7 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio San Mames (Bilbao).
Bilbao will expect a win in the next match, as they have been alternating wins and losses in their schedule recently in the La Liga this season. The host has lost three of their last five fixtures in the campaign, out of which two came at home. Their previous encounter was on the road and was defeated by Barcelona with a 2-1 score on the board.
Valencia has lost only one of their recent five matches in the campaign. The away team looks more confident and is just one point behind the host on the table. They will visit on the back of a 1-0 win at home against the likes of Elche in the previous league clash. Their only loss in the last five clashes came during the trip to Atletico Madrid, which will not affect their morale in the middle.

Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia Prediction
Bilbao’s recent defeats in the campaign will prove fatal to them in the upcoming clash. The host will face an improved Valencia visiting on the back of a win in their schedule. The visitor will come in with just one loss in their recent five fixtures while the host had three in the same period.
Valencia is also in decent form on the road, and their recent two defeats came against teams sitting above the eighth spot on the table. With their form, the guest can trouble the host, which is why the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be a suitable option of the goals area in the clash.
The host enjoys the ground advantage and can create more chances in the game. The Super Cup winners this season could make a comeback in the league, especially against a weaker side. To be safer, the draw no bet over Athletic Bilbao will probably be the best bet for the punters.
