Athletic Bilbao vs Las Palmas Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Athletic Bilbao’s 10-game unbeaten run in the La Liga came to an end after a 2-0 loss against Girona. Christian Stuani opened the scoring for the hosts in the seventh-minute penalty. He doubled Girona’s advantage in the 65th minute with a strong header, while the hosts also struck the woodwork on two occasions. Las Palmas managed another crucial victory in their efforts to fight against relegation, as they won 1-0 against Malaga. As the two teams were level going into the final minute, Alen Halilovic came up with the breakthrough.

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

Betting Tips and Predictions

Surprisingly, Las Palmas have been able to win two out of the last three games against Athletic Bilbao, but both these victories came at the Gran Canaria. Athletic Bilbao may be winless in four, but a game at the San Mames represents a great opportunity for the team to end this poor run. Las Palmas have lost at half-time and full-time in seven out of the 11 away matches this season. I would back a win at half-time and full-time for Athletic Bilbao.

Aduriz is the biggest source of goals for Athletic Bilbao, even if Inaki Williams has been playing a crucial role in the last couple of matches. Aduriz has scored in two out of the last three games at the San Mames, while he also netted a brace against Las Palmas in last season’s encounter. I would back Aduriz to score anytime.

Athletic Bilbao win at half-time and full-time – 6/5

Aduriz to score anytime – 4/5

Athletic Bilbao saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Athletic Bilbao Preview

Athletic Bilbao’s extended unbeaten run finally came to an end, but it had been coming in recent weeks. Prior to the defeat against Girona, Athletic Bilbao had gone 10 matches without a defeat but managed only three wins in this run. Hence, the club still remain in the bottom half of the table, although the distance to the top 10 places has narrowed substantially in recent weeks. Athletic Bilbao will be looking forward to a run of three home matches in the next four league outings. This could be the club’s way to push on to the top half, although they face opponents like Atletico Madrid, Valencia, and Sevilla in the next five. Aduriz remains the top scorer with eight goals.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Iker Undabarrene (cruciate ligament), Muniain (cruciate ligament), and Mikel Balenziaga (thigh) are the names unavailable for Athletic Bilbao.

Las Palmas Preview

Las Palmas have been given a lifeline in their efforts to fight against relegation, as the back-to-back home opportunities have lifted the club away from the bottom of the table. Las Palmas manager Paco Jemez remains aware that the team will have to pick up more points just to catch up with the likes of Levante, who sit outside the bottom three. Home form will have to play a crucial role in the efforts to fight against relegation, as Las Palmas have been able to get four out of their five La Liga wins at the Gran Canaria. The team has struggled on the road with a return of just four points from a possible 33. Jonathan Calleri is the top scorer at Las Palmas, along with Loic Remy, after managing five goals.

Las Palmas Team News

There are no injury or suspension worries for Las Palmas manager Paco Jemez.
