Athletic Bilbao vs Espanyol | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Athletic Bilbao will be looking to finish their disappointing campaign on a high as they welcome Espanyol to the Basque region in the season finale. Both teams have secured their top-flight statuses for another season but are more accustomed to fighting for European football places than scrapping against relegation historically.
The Lions have had a difficult season – they are in the uncharacteristically low position of 16th, having registered 43 points from 37 games. José Ángel Ziganda will be hoping his men can finish the season in style – having also dropped out of the Europa League at the last 16 stage against Marseille. Aduriz is synonymous with Bilbao and the veteran striker has once again rolled back the years to notch 17 goals in all competitions this term.
The White and Blue have also struggled this term and currently reside in 13th place in the La Liga table with 46 points from 37 games. David Gallego is currently in interim charge of the club, following the sacking of Quique Sanchez Flores and the club will be looking to use the summer to recruit a new manager and some new players wisely. Gerard Moreno tops the clubs scoring charts with 16 goals in all competitions this term.
Head to Head
Espanyol hold a significant lead in the La Liga head to head record between the sides with a 20:13 lead in their favour with another 18 matches between the teams finishing as draws. The two sides shared the spoils back in January with a 1-1 draw at Espanyol as Gerard Moreno’s first half goal was cancelled out by Inaki Williams.
