On Monday evening, at 22:00, in the end of the 18th round of La Liga, we have as protagonists Celta Vigo and Athletic Bilbao, who will meet on “Estadio de Balaidos”, where I anticipate the show.
It is seen as a favorite by betting agencies, and its main advantage is its own ground, where supporters will definitely play an important role.
“The Celts” have a rather poor track record in this championship edition, ranking 13th in the standings, five points in the relegation zone and so many European places.
Miguel Cardoso’s team has scored 21 points in the 17 stages so far, managing five wins and six draws, losing six times in these duels with 28 goals, receiving two fewer.
In the last round, Celta Vigo lost to Barcelona, being defeated by 2-0, after three failed matches, in which he managed to win Huesca and Villareal, and a draw with Leganes.
The host will miss the main marker, Iago Aspas, the Iberian being injured.
PROBABILA TEAM: Blanco – Junca, Costas, Araujo, Mallo – Lobotka, Yokuslu, Beltran – Boufal, Gomez, Mendez
He starts out as an outsider at betting houses, which was also normal, as the value is close to his opponent, but he is disadvantaged by the fact that he will evolve away.
The Basque are in an unpleasant situation, ranked 18th in the leaderboard, the first to go to the Segunda Division, where they have never relegated.
The 17 stages so far have brought two wins, ten draws and five defeats for Gaizka Garitano’s band, which scored 16 goals, receiving eight more.
Bilbao comes after four games without a failure, winning Huesca and Girona, drawing in disputes with Deportivo Alaves and Real Valladolid.
PROBABIL TEAM: Herrerin – Yuri, Martinez, Nunez, Capa – Etxebarria, Garcia – Cordoba, Muniain, Susaeta – Williams
Football Prediction of the Day Celta Vigo vs Athletic Bilbao
Four of the last five direct defeats between the two ended with gaps at both gates, and in this dispute I have every reason to believe we will witness a similar outcome.
The hosts can get closer to European seats, while the guests are looking to get out of the relegation area, so we should have a match on which both will mark.
Bet Tips: both marks
