Celta Vigo vs Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Celta de Vigo come on the back of back-to-back league defeats, as they lost 2-1 against Malaga at the La Rosaleda. Adrian scored just before the half-time break, but Celta were level with Iago Aspas came up with the equaliser midway through the second half. A late goal from the penalty spot scored by Recio provided the home team with three points. Athletic Bilbao had to endure more disappointment after a 2-0 loss against Barcelona. Lionel Messi and Paulinho scored goals in either half to provide the Catalan club with a convincing win, but the margin could have been bigger with both players striking the woodwork. In the midweek action, Athletic Bilbao won 1-0 against Ostersunds FK. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Athletic Bilbao have been able to win the last five games against Celta de Vigo without exception. This even applies to the games at the Balaidos, and Celta de Vigo’s last home win over Athletic Bilbao was back in 2013. Bilbao come into the game winless in the last four away games, while Celta de Vigo have lost only once in this period. Athletic Bilbao may appreciate a point from this game. I would go with a draw. This has been a high-scoring fixture with only one of the last five ending up with less than 1.5 goals. The remaining four matches have been with more than 2.5 goals. Even though Celta de Vigo have been mediocre so far, they have managed seven goals in five games and Bilbao have scored six in five games. Our total goals prediction is to bet on over 2.5 goals.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo have been unable to string together a run of consecutive results this season, as manager Carlos Unzue struggles to make an immediate impact terms of the league positions. After a mediocre start to the season, things seemed to improve substantially for Celta de Vigo after managing to pick up two wins and two draws in four matches before suffering these back-to-back losses. Maxi Gomez started out brilliantly and he has five goals for the season.

Celta Vigo Team News

Facundo Sebastian Roncaglia (thigh) is the only player on the sidelines for Celta de Vigo manager Juan Carlos Unzue.

Athletic Bilbao Preview

Athletic Bilbao continue to flounder in the La Liga, although a decent set of results mean that the club could still end up in the knockout stages of the Europa League. In terms of the La Liga, however, Athletic Bilbao are closer to the relegation zone than near the top six places. Last season, the club were able to use home advantage to a great extent and qualify for the second tier of European football. This time around, Athletic Bilbao have already lost two matches at the San Mames. They have also managed just one win on the road this season. Aduriz remains the leading scorer at the club with four league goals.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Iker Undabarrene (crucial element), Yeray Alvarez (tumour), Oscar De Marcos (ankle), Muniain (cruciate ligament), and Benat Etxebarria (hernia) are the players unavailable for Bilbao manager Cuco Ziganda.
