Real Betis vs Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Betis picked up the first league win since October after beating Malaga 2-0 at the La Rosaleda. A first half goal from Sergio Leon and a second-half effort from Víctor Camarasa helped Quique Setien’s team secure a comfortable victory. Athletic Bilbao were involved in a disappointing goalless draw with Real Sociedad at home. Neither team dominated the game which had few clear-cut opportunities. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Real Betis will draw a huge amount of confidence from the win over Malaga, but they are up against an Athletic Bilbao outfit that has shown plenty of resolve over the last few weeks. Real Betis have drawn two out of the last three home matches, while Athletic Bilbao have been involved in four stalemates over the last five league matches. Even though recent competitive meetings between these two teams have not produced a draw, this game has the potential to end up as a stalemate.

Aduriz scored in the recent outing against Real Betis. Even though this has taken his league tally to just two goals in 13 games against this team, Aduriz has been the primary goal scorer for Athletic Bilbao. He has come up with two goals in his last three appearances in all competitions. I would back Aduriz to score anytime.

Draw – 23/10

Aduriz to score anytime – 6/5

Real Betis Preview

Real Betis will be delighted to have arrested a long wait for a league victory. Since beating Deportivo Alaves at home towards the end of October, Real Betis went six league matches – and a further more if the Copa del Rey games are taken into account – without a win. Yet, this run has not hurt Real Betis too badly in terms of league positioning, as the club remain in with a chance to finish in the top six. Real Betis were at the bottom of the form table prior to the win over Malaga, but the team are now looking on the up following this crucial victory. Antonio Sanabria’s absence continues to create problems for Real Betis, as the seven-goal star remains on the sidelines.

Real Betis Team News

Joel Campbell (knee), Antonio Sanabria (meniscus), Andres Guardado (groin), Juan Narvaez (discomfort), and Ryad Boudebouz (knee) will be unavailable for manager Setien.

Athletic Bilbao Preview

Athletic Bilbao appeared to be heading back to their defensive excellence with the team managing three clean sheets in the last four games across all competitions. Yet, a return of just one win in the last six league matches places the club in the bottom half of the table. In fact, Athletic Bilbao have only picked up two league wins since the middle of September, although there are signs of improvement in the last few weeks with the team going unbeaten over the last five league matches. Despite being over 35, Aduriz is the top scorer at the club with six league goals.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Yeray Alvarez (tumour), Iker Undabarrene (cruciate ligament), Muniain (cruciate ligament), Kepa Arrizabalaga Revuelta (foot), and Mikel Balenziaga (thigh) are the players unavailable for Athletic Bilbao.
