Alaves are a well-organised and disciplined team, and they are difficult to beat at home. They have lost just two of their last 27 competitive home games, and they have a good record against Athletic Bilbao in recent years.

Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao have made a strong start to the La Liga season, winning four and drawing one of their first five matches. They currently sit fourth in the table, and they are looking to qualify for European football this season.

Athletic Bilbao are a talented team, with a number of experienced players in their ranks. They are also a very physical team, and they are difficult to play against. However, they have a poor away record, winning just one of their last six La Liga trips.

Tips and Rationale

Alaves to win or draw

Alaves have a good home record, losing just two of their last 27 competitive home games. They have also beaten Athletic Bilbao in two of their last three meetings. Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, have a poor away record, winning just one of their last six La Liga trips.

Both teams to score

Both teams have been scoring goals recently, with Alaves scoring five goals in their last five games and Athletic Bilbao scoring nine goals in their last five games. Both teams also have attacking players who can score goals. Alaves have Kike García and Luis Rioja, while Athletic Bilbao have Iñaki Williams and Gorka Guruzeta.

However, both teams also have defensive weaknesses. Alaves have conceded seven goals in their last five games, while Athletic Bilbao have conceded four goals in their last five games. This suggests that both teams are likely to score in this match.

Gorka Guruzeta to score

Gorka Guruzeta has been in good form for Alaves recently, scoring three goals in his last five games. He is also a good header of the ball, which could be important against Athletic Bilbao’s physical defense. Alaves are also likely to look for long balls to Guruzeta against Athletic Bilbao’s high press.
