Real Valladolid and Athletic Bilbao to Draw

While Athletic Bilbao is five points ahead at the moment and we do consider them to be the better team of the two, they are also in poor form and without a win in the last four La Liga games.

On top of that, Real Valladolid is hosting the match and they have done ok recently. So, we can see this being a much closer duel that the odds suggest and our first Real Valladolid vs Athletic Bilbao prediction is for the match to end in a draw.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Although we did not see both teams score in the last two duels between these teams, the three times they met before that all ended with both teams scoring and our second Real Valladolid vs Athletic Bilbao prediction is for both teams to score.

That being said, both teams have scored in just 32% of all Real Valladolid matches in the league this season and 36% of all Athletic Bilbao games in La Liga so far. Despite that, we feel that we can see both teams score in this game.

Predicted Lineups, News, and Latest Form for Real Valladolid vs Athletic Bilbao

Read all the latest news and facts on both teams ahead of their meeting , including the possible Real Valladolid vs Athletic Bilbao lineups:

Real Valladolid

In the last six games in La Liga, Real Valladolid has two wins, two draws, and two losses, which seems a bit inconsistent. However, for a newly-promoted team that is fighting for survival, that is actually not a bad haul. Overall, Real Valladolid has 28 points from 25 games, which puts them a few spots and two points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone right now.

Meanwhile, Luis Perez, Selim Amallah, Kenedy, Jordi Masip, and Anuar Tuhami are out with injuries, while Roque Mesa and Martin Hongla are suspended after both being sent off in the last round.

Real Valladolid Predicted Lineup:

Asenjo – Fresneda, Fernandez, El Yamiq, Olaza – Plata, Aguado, Perez, Sanchez, Plano – Marin

Athletic Bilbao

Right now, Athletic Bilbao is seemingly out of form as they have lost three of their last four matches in the league, along with one draw. The team still remains in the top half of the standings, but barely. On the other hand, the Basque team has a chance to get to the final of Copa del Rey, which would secure them a place in Europe next season.

When it comes to team news, Inigo Lekue, Jon Morcillo and Unai Simon are injured and out of this game, while Ander Herrera is questionable.

Athletic Bilbao Predicted Lineup:

Agirrezabala – De Marcos, Vivian, I. Martinez, Balenziaga – D. Garcia, Vesga – Muniain, Sancet, N, Williams – I. Williams

La Liga Standings

Player to Watch: Oihan Sancet

Since we can see the guests winning this match, our player to watch comes from their team and it is their top goalscorer this season Oihan Sancet, who Real Valladolid has to worry about.

The young attacking midfielder scored eight goals in La Liga for his team in twenty four appearances and he is clearly capable of deciding a game with his scoring ability.
