Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish LaLiga match on Wednesday, 1 July 2020. Kick off 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET at the Estadio de Mestalla.
Valencia dropped points in the recent two fixtures, both on the road. The host will have a considerably better form at home with their ground advantage when facing Athletic Bilbao in the clash.
Valencia is struggling after the league restart with just one win in their last five matches. Their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League are still hanging loose in the campaign table.
The host has an unbeaten run at home in the league this season and is one of the three sides to have this record at home in the table apart from Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Athletic Bilbao has only one loss in their last five matches, following a 3-1 win at home against Mallorca last time out in the campaign.
The Basque outfit has only two wins in their 16 away fixtures so far in the league this season. Besides, they are winless in the recent two fixtures on the road, which will not be a pleasant sign before a tour.
In the reverse fixture, Albert Celades and his men managed a 0-1 away win in the clash. Los Ches will be more in command when they host the game against the opponents.
Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao Head-to-head (h2h)
- Celades’s boys have been unbeaten in the last six fixtures.
- Two of their recent three fixtures have ended in a draw.
- Their previous encounter gave a 0-1 away win for Los Ches.
- The Basque outfit has lost in their prior four visits.
Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
When the teams met at Bilbao for the reverse fixture, Los Ches put the game to sleep after an early goal in the first 30 minutes of the clash. They had decent ball possession and attacked the Basque Outfits with 7 corner kicks and 6 shots on goal in ninety minutes.
When Celades and his men assemble at home, they will enjoy the ground advantage and their unbeaten streak at home in the campaign is not to be taken lightly. Besides, the visitors have a poor away form in the league which will probably hinder their Europa qualifiers’ dream.
The safest bet for the punters will be to go with a double chance in the game, favoring Valencia with a 1.40 odds.
It is an important three points for either team to keep their Europa dreams alive and hence expect a couple of goals in the encounter. The tip for over 1.5 goals at 1.50 odds will thus be a suitable option for the punters.
