Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis Prediction and Betting Preview, 20 Jun 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Not quite having the season they would have dreamed of; Athletic Bilbao are currently within La Liga mid-table obscurity. Having amassed a measly 39 points from 29 games, they sit 10th on the standings and are whiskers away from dropping into the bottom half of the standings.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 30
Venue: San Mamés (Bilbao)
You bet these set of players cannot afford plunging further down the standings and will be setting their sights on climbing higher on the log. Surely, San Mames will want to finish the season as high as possible. For that, they will be required to improve performance levels over the coming weeks.

Gaizka Garitano, known for this friendly nature with the media, has expressed his contempt regarding the negative attitude of his players. With the season running out, the Spanish gaffer will be looking to instill that winning mentality into the lads.

With a Europa League place finish not totally out of the picture, Bilbao will be looking to condemn Real Betis to defeat this weekend to post all three points on the board. Expect an enthralling and entertaining game in Bilbao come kickoff.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis Team News

Looking to get their faltering campaign back on track, Athletic Bilbao made a trip to the Ipurua Municipal Stadium to take on Eibar on the last match-day. Deemed favorites for a comfortable win, ATH headed into the game in high-spirits, hoping to take their weak opposition to the cleaners.

Eibar’s desperation for top-flight survival must have sparked their impressive display on the night as they matched their opposite number toe-to-toe. Bilbao must have been left at a loss for words with Los Armeros’ spirited performances in the fixture.

Following an early Bilbao lead, Eibar responded brilliantly with two goals to turn the game on its head. However, Garitano’s charges snatched an important point from the jaws of defeat when Villalibre fired home a screamer to secure a draw.

Events played out similarly at the Benito Villamarin when Real Betis played host to high-flying Granada last time out. A thriller it was, both sides registering two goals apiece to post a massive 2-2 score on the board.

Real Betis seemed particularly delighted with the draw given they had not been given any chance prior to kickoff. However, Los Verdiblancos remained determined, turning in a performance of the highest quality to ensure a much-needed point was bagged in the end.

Following the recent draw at Eibar, Bilbao have now drawn two games on the bounce since the league restart. Gaizka Garitano’s men are unbeaten in each of their last four games, comprising two wins and draws. Noteworthily, a whopping seven of their nine overall wins have arrived at this venue.

From their 14 home games this season, they have admitted defeat only thrice. Also, they are doing as good a job at attacking as they are at defending. In these home fixtures, they have scored 16 goals whilst conceding 8 in the process. This shows they are one of the best defensive sides in the league.

Meanwhile, Los Verdiblancos are on a two-game losing streak on the road, and have remained winless over their previous seven away games.

Athletic Bilbao: No injuries or suspensions.

Real Betis: Juanmi, Javi Garcia, William Carvalho and Sidnei.

Athletic Bilbao vs Betis Predictions

Real Betis’ struggles on the road are very well-documented. As the stats suggest, they are one of the worst away sides in the La Liga this season. In sharp contrast, Athletic Bilbao are a huge force to reckon with on home turf and are very difficult to breach at this venue.

As such, expect a comfortable home win with Garitano’s men scoring no less than two goals here. Betis are very unlikely to get on the scoresheet. A very nice punt will be tipping Athletic Bilbao for a “home win to nil”
