Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Valencia have only won once at Athletic Bilbao since 2012. Can Los Che carve out an unexpected victory on Sunday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Valencia Double Chance

With just one victory in Bilbao since 2012, Valencia’s record in away meetings with Athletic Club makes for grim reading at first glance, though it’s interesting to note that they haven’t been beaten at San Mamés Barria since 2016 – a run of six straight visits without defeat. Five of those encounters ended all square and margins could be similarly slim on Sunday. The hosts looked short on firepower when they drew 0-0 at home to Mallorca last weekend and Valencia are priced generously to leave Los Leones frustrated again in the double chance market.

Under 2.5 Goals

Athletic Club have struggled in the goal-scoring department for an extended period now and they looked relatively toothless again when they drew 0-0 with Mallorca on the opening weekend of the new La Liga season. Valencia looked far from prolific themselves when they squeezed a 1-0 victory out of their meeting with Girona, so bettors shouldn’t expect fireworks when Los Che and Athletic collide on Sunday. Each of the last five skirmishes between the clubs have produced under 2.5 goals and a similar outcome looks possible here.
