Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Getafe maximised home advantage once again after a 1-0 victory over Malaga last weekend. Juan Cala’s bullet header in the 73rd minute secured a crucial victory for Getafe. Athletic Bilbao were able to pick up a point at the RCDE Stadium after a 1-1 draw with Espanyol. Gerard Moreno scored from the edge of the box in the 29th minute, but Inaki Williams was able to level the scores just six minutes later.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The home form for Getafe has been a major reason behind their lofty league positions and Athletic Bilbao will have their work cut out in order to extend their unbeaten streak. There was little to separate when these two teams met earlier in the campaign and it is likely to be the case for this meeting too. Bilbao have drawn two out of the last four away matches, and I would choose a draw in this game.

Low scoring matches have been the norm when these two teams are involved, as none of the last six matches for Getafe and five out of the last six games for Athletic Bilbao have produced under 2.5 goals. Defences are likely to be on top once again in this game, and I would opt for under 2.5 goals.

Draw – 17/10

Total goals under 2.5 – 13/20

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

Getafe Preview

Getafe continue to make the most out of home games, as the club have been able to remain in the top 10 beyond the winter break. A run of five wins in the last six home matches is a testament to the strength of Getafe at the Colosseum Alfonso Perez. Getafe have picked up more than twice the number of points at home in the last six matches than they have done on the road throughout the campaign. Scoring goals has not been a forte for the team, as they have managed only 23 goals so far. Angel Rodriguez is the top scorer with six league goals.

Getafe Team News

Getafe manager Pepe Bordalas does not have injuries or suspension issues coming into the match.

Athletic Bilbao Preview

Athletic Bilbao have been able to extend their unbeaten run to 8 matches in the La Liga. The last league defeat for the team was against Celta de Vigo in the first week of November. Even though this unbeaten run has yielded just three victories, the team has been slowly climbing up the table and are now just one point away from the top 10. Realistically, the club will be aiming for a European spot and sixth-placed Sevilla are only four points ahead. Bilbao have scored just 21 league goals so far and it is the lowest tally of the top 12 teams. Unsurprisingly, Aduriz has contributed seven of those goals to take up position as the club’s top scorer.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Muniain (cruciate ligament), Iker Undabarrene (cruciate ligament), Kepa (foot), Oscar De Marcos (hamstring), and Mikel Balenziaga (thigh) are the names unavailable for Athletic Bilbao manager Cuco Ziganda.
