Athletic Bilbao to Win

The Basque team started the new season in solid form, while Alaves lost their first five matches of the season. However, Alaves surprised everybody in the last round when they beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 at home, so they obviously shouldn't be underestimated. Still, we expect Athletic Bilbao to win this game without any problems.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The team with the worst average in La Liga when it comes to goals is Athletic Bilbao – they averaged just 1.43 goals per game in their first seven matches. Meanwhile, Alaves averaged 2.17 goals per game but most of those were goals they conceded since they only scored twice so far. So, betting on under 2.5 total goals in this game sounds like a safe bet, especially since three of the last five duels between these clubs have also ended with two goals or fewer.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we don't expect to see many goals in this match, we also don't expect both teams to score. After all, both teams scored in just two of the last five h2h duels between Athletic Bilbao and Alaves. Also, both teams have scored in 43% of Athletic Bilbao matches in La Liga this season, while the same is true for just 17% of games Alaves played in the league so far.

Athletic Bilbao vs Alaves preview: Can Alaves surprise us again?

After a mid-table finish in the last season of La Liga, Athletic Bilbao seems on course to another similar season in the top flight of Spanish football. The team that was never relegated from the league currently has two wins, four draws, and one loss after the first seven rounds. However, the team  is without a win in the last three matches, so beating Alaves would give them a necessary confidence boost. That being said, Athletic Bilbao has five players on the injury list at the moment, which could make it difficult to play at their best.

After five losses in the same number of games, Alaves shocked everybody by beating the defending champions Atletico Madrid in the previous round of La Liga. The team that only scored two goals in the first six matches of La Liga was the first one to beat Atletico Madrid this season, to make the win even more surprising. Of course, Alaves is still deep in the relegation zone, but at least the fans can now hope for a better rest of the season. Lejeune, Lopez and Pons are injured and will miss the next game in the league.
