Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia Match Analysis and Prediction

Athletico Bilbao is hoping to keep their sheet 100% clean in the 2019 season when they host Valencia at San Mames on Saturday 28th September 2019. This match is scheduled to start at 12:00 GMT.

The Athletic Club has had an impressive start in the 2019/2020 season and is hoping to continue so in the foreseeable future. The Lions hope to rise above their Wednesday 1-1 draw against Leganes and give their fans something to smile at home. It should be remembered that Athletic Bilbao has won all its three home games of the season hence the visitors should be worried.

Valencia also did well to hold Getafe to a 3-3 draw in their Wednesday midweek Laliga fixture. At number 13 of the table standings, things do not seem good for Valencia hence there is need to up their game. With so many draws Los Che has dropped so many crucial points.

With Valencia trying to find their best form for the season, the Lions are already in their best form of the season. At number 3, they are likely to give the visitors a run for their win. Considering that the Lions have won all their home games and Los Che is yet to find their best form, we believe there is great value in betting for Athletic Bilbao to win.
