Villarreal vs Athletic Bilbao-Prediction 9th April 2018-Spanish LaLiga Pedictions-9th April 2018

Villarreal vs Athletic Bilbao
Spanish La Liga
Date: 9th April 2018, Monday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).

Inconsistency crept into the Villarreal team and time is running out to save the Europa League spot. Despite sitting at 5th in the standings, they are closely followed by Sevilla from a 1 point gap and Girona from 3 point gap. The La Real must start taking advantage of the home games to be in Europe next season.

Talking about their home form, Villarreal lost to the likes of Girona and Alaves inside the last four matches. Those were guaranteed three pointers which inturn place then in a commanding position inside the top six of the table.

Atletico Bilbao had a good run in the Europa League this season, but they won’t be there next season. The domestic performances can be put down as awful by their usual standards and thereby sit at 12th in the standings.

Bilbao are still a decent team in home games, but the road form is the worst in the league. Managing just 3 wins from the 15 so far this season, the team is in distress after losing the last four by the same 2-0 margin.

Villarreal vs Athletic Bilbao: Head-to-head

The teams share 3 wins and 3 draws each from their last 9 La Liga meetings.

Away wins in this h2h fixture is rare, happened only once in the last 16.

Thus, Villarreal are unbeaten in the last 12 at the El Madrigal with 10 wins and 2 draws.

Yet, both teams scored in 9 of those h2h fixtures between these two at this stadium.

Villarreal vs Athletic Bilbao: Prediction

This head-to-head meeting is normally the home team’s game and we expect the trend to continue on Monday night. The core reason is Bilbao being a traditionally poor away side and they are coming to this match on the back of 4 away defeats with scoring. And it is 14 years since the visitors won a league game at the El Madrigal, now known as the Estadio de la Ceramica.
