PREVIEW & PREDICTION – Ath Bilbao vs Malaga 25/02/2018

The campaign of the Basques has not been good in general terms, since it costs a lot to win and climb positions in the table. However, we played for its win due to the local factor and the higher quality of its players. Remember that the Andalusians are not reliable in defense and much more when they act away from the Rose Garden.

Athletic Bilbao :

The Basques come from playing against Spartak Moscow in the new San Mamés, managing to qualify for the next stage of the Europa League (defeat 1-2 in the round). In the Spanish tournament they lost 2-0 against Atlético de Madrid in the Metropolitan Wanda, staying with 28 units in total. They have only added 2 in their last 5 presentations, costing them a lot to win in the domestic tournament.

Playing at home Athletic Bilbao has given up too many points, even scoring very few goals in the new San Mamés (3 wins, 6 draws and 2 falls, achieving 8 goals in favor and only 6 against). He has tied 4 of his last 5 duels against his people, drawing 1-1 against Eibar and 0-0 against Las Palmas consecutively.


The present of the Andalusians is being disastrous after adding 3 consecutive defeats and stay in the last position with 13 units. It comes from losing 1-2 to Valencia at home, wasting a partial 1-0 advantage. Its main defect lies in the defensive problems it shows, since it has a relatively interesting attack.

Acting far from the Rosaleda, Malaga has reaped extremely negative results for their aspirations (1 win, 1 draw and 10 losses, managing to specify 5 goals and give 20 in their goal). He has lost 3 of his last 4 starts, being the last 1-0 against Las Palmas in Gran Canaria.
