Athletic Bilbao vs Villareal
KICK OFF: Wednesday 26th Sept 2018 | 20:00 CET
LA LIGA WK6 | Estadio San Mames
Can in-form Bilbao see off Villareal and pile on the misery for the struggling La Liga team?
Two of La Liga’s competitive sides lock horns on Wednesday night as Bilbao entertain Villareal. The hosts can scoop maximum points, judging from their current form.
Bilbao held Real Madrid in their last home game, and if they can display the same strength against Villareal, a win is very possible. They have a strong squad, and the lack of European action means they have enough time to prepare for league games. Bilbao has scored in every game so far this season, and look good to net a few on their home ground in this fixture.
Villareal recorded their first victory this season in their last match against Leganes. They will be seeking to build on that as things begin to take shape. So far they have only netted twice and conceded three goals over the course of four games.
Given Bilbao’s free-scoring form and Villareal’s vulnerability at the back, current form favours the hosts. A win for Bilbao is additionally significant ahead of a tough trip to Barcelona.
Key Match Facts
- Both teams scored in the last three meetings.
- Bilbao has scored in all their last four games.
