Betfair LS Billboard - Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo Predictions & Match Preview: Los Leones To Deliver Against At San Memes

Match Preview & Team News

Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo predictions and match preview for this Sunday’s early evening clash at San Mames. Athletic Club are the favourite to improve their home record this term against a Celta Vigo side who have lost six of their last nine outings on the road. Keep reading below our free La Liga betting tips and predictions.

Bilbao keen to get back to San Memes

Athletic Bilbao have dropped to 8th place in La Liga after a four matches winless run. Three of those matches have been away from home, and also included top teams like Real Madrid and Sevilla.

Gaizka Garitano’s men did very well before Christmas to get a 0-0 draw against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. They then started the new year with a decent 1-1 draw at Sevilla. Now that those two challenging matches are over, Bilbao have now the opportunity to make the most of next matches and increase their chances of getting a European place at the end of the season. After this home clash against Celta, they will have a winnable away fixture against bottom side Espanyol.

Garitano’s men will be looking to secure the maximum points from those two matches, and surely they are the favourites to win this match with their strong home record of 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat. San Memes is a fortress as they have only lost one of their last 23 league matches here with 14 wins in the process.

Celestes underperforming on the road

Celta Vigo have managed to get just one draw in their last four visits to Bilbao. When those two sides met at Balaidos earlier in the season, Oscar Garcia’s men were able to defeat Los Leones 1-0. Athletic Bilbao are a very different proposition when playing at home, so this is likely to be a different affair.

Celta have only won one of their nine La Liga matches away from home, with two draws and six defeats. Celestes were able to get a 1-1 draw away to Osasuna at the beginning of the year, but have now gone five matches without a win. The Galician’s have also been defeated in seven of their last 11 matches in La Liga so surely are not in splendid form. Unless they can get back on track, they are likely to be sucked into the relegation zone. A 1-4 Copa Del Rey away win at Merida in midweek was a positive result but clearly this away trip is a lot more challenging.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

All considered, it is very difficult to back anything different than a solid home win for Bilbao. At San Mames, Los Leones have what it takes to get a comfortable win against a shaky Celta Vigo side. We are backing them to win with 1 goal handicap. As far as the correct result goes, we are going for 3-0 Atletico Bilbao.

Goals Market Prediction

Bilbao have been able to keep clean sheets in six of their last nine home matches in this season, while Celta have conceded two goals per game on their travels. We do not see Celestes scoring here and backing Both Teams To Score NO looks the way to go.
