 Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao’s decline shows no signs of stopping, they have now gone eight consecutive matches without a win, with five draws and three defeats. The biggest problem is their lack of goal scoring ability, which is no longer a surprise, as they have only scored two goals in their last six games.

A total of 25 goals have been scored in 17 match days in Athletic Bilbao’s matches, which means an average of 1.47 total goals per match. A very low average.

The only good thing about Athletic Bilbao is that their offensive weakness is compensated by a very good defensive game, as they have only conceded 12 goals in 17 games. However, there has also been a weakness in this respect, as they have conceded four goals in the last five games.

 Real Betis

Real Betis continue their positive trend and now have four wins in a row in La Liga Santander. After beating Barça, Real Betis won again on the last match day and again against a great team like Real Sociedad. The result of the match was 4-0.

Real Betis remain the second best away team so far, with five wins, one draw and two defeats. The Andalusian team’s last two outings ended in victory, scoring four goals and without conceding a goal. If Betis’ defensive weaknesses have always been criticised, the truth is that there has been a clear improvement in this respect in recent weeks.

Betis’ last eight visits to San Mames have ended in defeat for the Andalusian side, conceding 17 goals and scoring just three goals.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis Predictions

While Betis are in a great moment for the match and Athletic Bilbao are in a very bad moment, the truth is that it is very difficult to hurt Athletic at San Mames, as they are a defensive wall. Athletic are being punished for their poor goal scoring ability, and Betis have made a noticeable improvement in terms of defence. In short, we see an evenly matched game and think the match could end in a draw.
