Espanyol vs Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Espanyol continue to occupy a lofty position in the 2018-19 La Liga table. It is not a surprise given that the Catalan outfit have lost fewer games than Real Madrid and Sevilla. Athletic Bilbao still have just one league win to their credit this season. Eduardo Berizzo’s men have been good at stifling out the opposition and picking up tough results on the road. However, they may struggle to do the same at the RCDE Stadium, where Espanyol have a 100% record – the only team in the La Liga to possess this record in the 2018-19 campaign. I would go with a win for Espanyol.

Villarreal are the only team to score at the RCDE Stadium this season with Toko Ekambi’s goal just before half-time breaking Espanyol’s run of three consecutive clean sheets. Bilbao find themselves in relegation trouble owing to the heavy dependence on Inaki Williams and Raul Garcia, while the team has also come up with just 11 league goals. I would go with a game that has under 2.5 goals due to the strong defensive nature of Espanyol at home this season.

Espanyol win – 1/1

Total goals under 2.5 – 4/6

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

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