Our Prediction:

Getafe will win

Getafe – Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

The Lions, on the other hand, recorded a win in each of their previous three league fixtures, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Madrid. Getafe and Athletic Club face each other at Coliseum Alfonso Perez in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sundays program. Getafe are eyeing a place in the Champions League and they are eager to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Spanish top flight.

Last seasons league table and three draws from the previous four meetings reinforce that theres very little to choose between these two teams and were forecasting a stalemate on Saturday night, which both managers would probably consider a good result. Our main tip though is under 1.5 goals, which is well priced based on Getafes strong defence at home, Bilbaos general lack of decisiveness up top and the fact weve seen less than two goals in three of the last five games between the pair.

They eventually lost out to Los Che by a couple of points and finished 5th, but that was no disgrace and Getafe could well benefit for qualifying for the Europa League as its a competition they can realistically win. Another strong La Liga campaign should also be in store for Pepe Bordalas side who performed with credit on match day one to go down by just a single goal against Atleti at Wanda Metropolitano.

The Basques, though, often struggle on the travels, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. Athletic Club, on the other hand, did well to beat title holders Barcelona at home in their opener, with veteran Aritz Aduriz scoring a wonder goal on the opening day of the season. In their last meeting in Madrid Getafe recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Athletic Club.

Anyhow, seeing that los Azulones are tough to beat at home, we predict that the two teams are going to play out a draw in Sundays football match. A man to watch in the away team will be pacey attacker Inaki Williams, whilst Athletic Club defenders should have Jaime Mata at bay. In the first half of the season the two teams shared the spoils at San Mames Barria.

They won just four and lost nine of their 19 games on the road last season, failed to score in four of their last five. On the evidence of Bilbaos performance and how strongly they ended the 2018/19 campaign under Garitano, Los Leones could well be a force in the race for Europe this term but they need to prove that they can also cut the mustard away from home.

Athletic Club (mostly known as Athletic de Bilbao) is a Spanish football club from the Bask region which is playing currently in the Primera Division. The club from Bilbao is playing in the highest Spanish division since its founded in 1928 and is next to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona for a longest period of time in the Primera Division. Athletic de Bilbao used to play until 2012 in the San Mames stadium (also known as La Catedral).
