The Basques were even lucky to have saved a point thanks to Iker Muniain’s leveller midway through the second half in Madrid.

Eduardo Berizzo’s job is thus rumoured to be on the line and the former Celta Vigo and Sevilla manager could easily part ways with the Lions without a serious turnaround in form.

We’ll remind you that Bilbao started off with a 2-1 home victory over Leganes, but failed to win a single out of following eight games in Primera Division.

Can they end such a dreadful run on Saturday afternoon when Valencia come to visit San Mames?

Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia: Head-to-head

Valencia lead the head to head tie by eight wins coming into their 53rd encounter with the Basques.

They were the dominant force in the most recent set of H2H fixtures between the two sides, winning two and drawing one of last three.

The home court advantage played a massive role in the history of this rivalry. Five of last six H2H games saw home teams snatching the spoils.

Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia: Prediction

The Bats won’t come into this in much higher spirits either. They are unbeaten in last seven games across competitions, but won just one along the way.

Valencia are struggling badly for goals at the start of the season. They did not bag two or more in any of last nine official outings in La Liga and Champions League.

Marcelino’s men drew 1-1 to both Leganes (Primera Division) and Young Boys (Champions League) within last seven days.

Can the Bats boost up the attacking momentum against the vulnerable defensive line of Bilbao’s?

Since each of last three of Valencia’s fixtures saw the identical 1-1 scoreline, we have to find the value in backing this correct score pick at 6.00 odds.
