Athletic Bilbao – Girona, La Liga Prediciton
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ATHLETIC BILBAO - GIRONA
Athletic Bilbao smashed for the second time Huesca with 4-0, this time as a guest for Copa Del Rey during the week and so the Basque remain with just one loss of their last 5 games in all competitions. The problem is that this loss came in the last round against Levante in the last fixture with 0-3. Athletic have only 1 win and a bunch of draws. However, they play good and it seems that bad luck is against them, because they had some good games, for example, against the Madrid Colossus, but finally they were left empty-handed for lack of concentration.
Girona are a team that is in very good shape. They are one of the few teams that still have no loss as a guest. All three of their losses came to home games. However, Girona is doing a lot of draws. They were in 8th position before this round with 21 points – 3 behind 4th Alaves. This year’s La Liga competition is cruel and every team has its chances. Girona are in a series of 8 straight games without loss in all competitions.
Bilbao has had 2 home losses this season, te latter being from Sociedad in early October. We think it’s about time Athletic Bilbao to win. Specifically, against Girona they have no particularly rich history. In the two games that have played so far, they have exchanged one win by 2-0 as hosts, respectively. We are almost convinced that Bilbao will not lose the match, but draw is a commonplace for them this season. That’s why our prediction is secure again – Bilbao – Draw No bet on 1.43. Alternative option – Athletic to win at 2.00. Cards are also a good option, as it will probably be another nervous match from La Liga
