Athletic Club have been in bad shape in their La Liga recent games, they are winless in their last 3 games. Also they have won just once in their last 5 games in all competitions. They are currently 7th in the league table with 17 points, 2 points below the team in the 6th spot. They will be aiming for a win in this fixture to get themselves into the 6th spot should Real Sociedad fail to win.
Villarreal have been good this season, they are moving closely with the top teams. They are 3rd in the table with 22 points, 3 points behind Barcelona in the 2nd place. Villarreal entered the break from a 2-0 win over Real Betis and will be hoping to build on that win as they face Bilbao.

Athletic Bilbao vs Villarreal: Prediction
Villarreal may be better in form, but their poor away form this season is a thing of worry. Villarreal have won just one away game in all competitions this season and have also lost one while the rest ended draw.
The game will most likely favour the home team, but we expect the game to end in draw.
