Reason For Athletic Bilbao vs Eibar Betting Tips

  • Athletic Bilbao have notched six wins and a draw from their eight home matches this term. Los Leones have lost just one of their last 22 La Liga games at San Mames.
  • Last weekend’s 0-1 home loss against Getafe was Eibar’s fourth consecutive league defeat on the spin.
  • The visitors have won just one of their eight away league games this term, drawing three and losing four.

Bilbao seeking to bounce back

Athletic Bilbao went into last weekend’s fixture against Real Betis with the best defensive record in La Liga after conceding just nine goals in their first 15 matches of the campaign, so it was something of a surprise to see Los Verdiblancos race into a 3-0 lead after just 20 minutes at Benito Villamarin.

Los Leones were undone by an inspired hat-trick from veteran winger Joaquin and despite their best efforts, goals from Inaki Williams and Yuri weren’t quite enough to salvage a point for Gaizka Garitano’s side.

The defeat brought an end to a three match winning streak for Bilbao and they will be keen to hit back immediately in this Saturday’s all-Basque affair against Eibar to stay within touching distance of the top four. The host’s haven’t lost in their last six home encounters against Los Armeros and go into Matchday 17 having notched six wins and a draw from their eight outings at San Mames this term.

Eibar in desperate need of a win

Last week’s 0-1 reverse against Getafe marked Eibar’s fourth La Liga defeat in a row, so this is far from the ideal time for Los Armeros to travel to a side who boast one of the best home records in Spain.

Jose Luis Mendilibar’s charges have been gradually sucked into the relegation picture over the past few weeks and sit 16th going into Saturday’s contest, just two points ahead of 18th placed Celta Vigo.

Any kind of positive result will do for Eibar this weekend to stop the rot, but that looks highly unlikely based on recent form and their overall away record this season. Los Armeros have only beaten second bottom Leganes on the road (1-2) and have registered three draws and four defeats in their other seven away matches.

Host’s look like banker material to bolster San Mames record

Despite last weekend’s set back at Benito Villamarin, Bilbao rate as solid favourites to land the spoils in this all-Basque clash based on their excellent form at San Mames and Eibar’s recent troubles.

It’s obviously concerning that Los Leones were walked over at will in the first 20 minutes against Betis, but they have otherwise been watertight defensively this season, especially at San Mames where they have kept five clean sheets from eight and conceded just three times.

So with Eibar flailing on the road and failing to score in three of their last four La Liga games, we’re confidently tipping up a Bilbao success here alongside a 2-0 correct score.
