Athletic Bilbao vs Getafe Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Athletic Bilbao enter into the new La Liga 2017-18 game with a new manager at the helm. The exit of Ernesto Valverde came as expected, and the club are now hoping that successor Cuco Ziganda manages to do an equally good job. The club were unable to finish seventh in the table last season. As a result, they have been negotiating Europa League qualifiers in order to get European football. Getafe have been promoted back to the Spanish top league after one season in the Segunda division. The club have been a going through a difficult pre-season.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The return to the Spanish La Liga will be a tough place for Getafe, who have been winless in the last four friendlies. The club have also managed just one away win over Athletic Bilbao in the last six. Bilbao have a strong home record, and it was a feature of the club last season. They have been able to win the last three home games against Getafe before the latter’s relegation to the second division. I would go with a win for Athletic Bilbao. Aduriz has an impressive record against Getafe after scoring the most number of career goals against this club. He was the top scorer for Bilbao last season with 24 in all matches. He has 12 in 20 games against Getafe. I would go with Aduriz scoring anytime in the game.

Athletic Bilbao win – 1/2

Aduriz to score anytime in the game – 5/4

Athletic Bilbao saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Getafe have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played

Athletic Bilbao Preview

The season is expected to be extremely tough on Athletic Bilbao, as the club has not been active in the transfer market in order to back Ziganda. The club narrowly missed out on the Europa League automatic qualification spots. Presence of Athletic Bilbao in the top-level European competition may distract their objective of finishing in the top five in the 2017-18 league campaign. Athletic Bilbao had one of the best home records in the 2017-18 season. Equally, the club suffered when it came to the away matches. Ziganda will be relieved to start the season with a home match. Aritz Aduriz was the top scorer at the club last season with 24 goals in 42 appearances.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Yeray Alvarez (cancer) and Ander Iturraspe (thigh) are the players unavailable for Athletic Bilbao.

Getafe Preview

Getafe have wasted time in the transfer market despite coming into the top flight through the play-offs. The club has strengthened in almost every area of the pitch with players like Francisco Portillo, Bruno González, and Vitorino Antunes. Despite getting promoted, Getafe will be concerned with the away form that was of a major issue even in the Segunda division. The club were able to pick up just five wins in the 21 away games. Now, they are coming up against a much stronger opponent week in and week out. Jorge Molina was the top scorer for Getafe last season and he scored 22 goals in 44 appearances.

Getafe Team News

Getafe are not struggling with injuries or suspensions coming into the game.
