Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 13.00 UK/ 14.00 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Getafe could manage just one point from their last three match-days, and it has hurt their chances to get to Europe. They have been a surprise inclusion in the top four of this league, just below the titans, Barca, Atleti and Real. Eight match-days remain until the conclusion of the competition, and the team has just a single-point buffer to fall on.
Bilbao has been on fire the last few games. They won the last three league fixtures in a row, a feat no other side can boast of currently. They have posted 43 points on the board and needs to overcome a deficit of just three points to get themselves to Europe.

Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
Getafe won nine of their last eleven home ties, and one of these losses was against Barcelona. They have been on fine form all season, and have a very good chance to finish in the top-four. They have worked really hard for it and would want to see their dream come to fruition. They were unbeaten in 37 of their last 45 games and registered four of the last seven h2h wins at this venue as well.
Furthermore, teams at home have had the upper hand in most h2h meetings for a very long time. Ten of the last sixteen wins went to the hosts of the day, and on that front, Bilbao is at a disadvantage. Moreover, Getafe saw a brief halt in their chase for the top-four positions the last few games, and with them enjoying the home advantage this Sunday, will definitely want to make up for it. Expect them to win at least one half of the tie.
Bilbao will be no easy task though. They remain the only team that has won the last three league fixtures and remained unbeaten in 17 of their last 20 games. They were also unvanquished in seven of their last nine attempts on the road. They also found the back of the net in the last four h2h meetings at this venue, and in eight of the last ten overall. Expect goals to come from both sides this Sunday.
