📊 Form Guide

Valencia LDLWLL

Valencia won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-0 La Liga loss in their previous game against Villarreal.

For their opponents, Villarreal CF got 17 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Paco Alcácer (14') and Gerard Moreno (44') scored for Villarreal.

It has been all too rare in recent times that Valencia have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Los Che have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 11 goals in the process.

Leading up to this clash, Valencia:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by Athletic Bilbao in their previous 6 games.
  • are unbeaten in their last 17 home league matches. So impressive.

Athletic Bilbao WDDWLW

Athletic Bilbao go into this match after a 3-1 La Liga win to beat Mallorca in their last game. In that game, Athletic Bilbao managed 47% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. For Athletic Bilbao, the goals were scored by Raúl García (16'), Oihan Sancet (24') and Villalibre (90'). RCD Mallorca had 14 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Ante Budimir (69') scored for Mallorca.

The stats tell the story, and Athletic Bilbao have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 6 goals in all. In defence, Los Leones have some weaknesses to address.

Taking a look at their past results, Athletic Bilbao:

  • haven't won against Valencia CF when they've played them away from home in the last 3 league games.
  • have not won away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.

↔️ Head to head

A review of their past head to head meetings going back to 19/02/2017 reveals that these encounters have been a source of anguish for Athletic Bilbao. They’ve not been able to register any victories whatsoever whereas Valencia have maintained the edge over them, finishing as winners in 67 per cent of those games played.

An aggregate of 12 goals were yielded between them in these games, with 9 of them for Los Che and 3 netted by Los Leones. That is an average goals per game value of 2.

The previous league match between the two was LaLiga match day 7 on 28/09/2019 when it finished Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Valencia. That time, Athletic Bilbao managed 50% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 3 on target. At the other end, Valencia had 10 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Denis Cheryshev (27') was the scorer. The referee was Mario Melero López.

📰 Team News: Valencia

Mouctar Diakhaby (Calf Injury), Francis Coquelin (Muscle Injury), Cristiano Piccini (Fractured Kneecap) and Ezequiel Garay (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be able to feature for Valencia manager Albert Celades. Eliaquim Mangala will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.

It looks as if Los Che should go for a 4-4-2 system in the match, beginning the first half with Jasper Cillessen, Jaume Costa, Eliaquim Mangala, Gabriel Paulista, Alessandro Florenzi, Goncalo Guedes, Daniel Parejo, Daniel Wass, Ferrán Torres, Maximiliano Gómez and Rodrigo Moreno.

🗞️ Team News: Athletic Bilbao

Bilbao boss Gaizka Garitano has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Ibai Gómez (Muscular problems) and Beñat Etxebarria (Muscular problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.

We reckon that Los Leones appear most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 system, going with Unai Simón, Ander Capa, Yeray Álvarez, Íñigo Martinez, Yuri Berchiche, Unai López Cabrera, Dani García, Iñaki Williams, Oihan Sancet, Iñigo Córdoba and Raul Garcia.

💭 Prediction

Athletic Bilbao will surely be able to put a goal past this Valencia team, however that is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss. Our selection here is for a 2-1 winning score for Valencia at the end of the match. Should be an interesting one.
