Athletic Bilbao vs Rayo Vallecano – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Athletic Bilbao have won three of their last four fixtures ahead of their tussle with Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Athletic Bilbao to Win

Something exciting is brewing at Athletic Bilbao under new boss Ernesto Valverde and Los Leones are rocketing up the La Liga table thanks to a run of three wins in four games. In each of their last two victories, Athletic smashed four goals past their opponents and they can put their early swagger to good use against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. The visitors have lost two of their last three assignments and they could struggle to contain Athletic’s attacking football in Bilbao

Alex Berenguer to Score Anytime

Talented winger Alex Berenguer bagged one of Athletic’s goals at Elche last weekend and the 27-year-old has chipped in with three efforts in five La Liga appearances overall since the summer. The ex-Torino flanksman is loving life under Ernesto Valverde and he is armed with enough confidence to do some more damage against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. With his red-hot form considered, Berenguer looks a big price in the anytime goalscorer stakes.
