Celta vs Bilbao (By: Saconex)
Spain La Liga
Celta Vigo (14) vs Athetic Bilbao (18)
Both teams have disappointed a lot this season, and it will be interesting to follow this match. Celta are coming from losing 2-0 away vs Barcelona (1) before the Christmas break and they only managed 0-0 at home vs Leganes (17) before that. As it stands their total record is 5-6-6 with 28-26 in goal difference. The hosts are missing important player Iago Aspas tonight.
Athletic are standing with total record of 2-10-5 and 16-24 in goal difference. They are in other words very hard to actually beat, but their biggest problem is their lack of goals for sure. In fact they have the weakest attack in the league, although they looked a lot better with new manager Garitano before the Christmas break. Yeray & Raul Garcia are both suspended.
• Celta are normally struggling against Athletic, last 10 meetings: 2-2-6
This pick is based on historical records between the two sides, but also the fact that Athletic actually looked pretty good before the break. I think we can expect Celta to have the possession and they are for sure hungry for a home win again, but on the other side Athletic have to continue picking up points and their morale should be high, so overall I think this match will suit the guests good. Im backing the guests to grab all 3 points, 0-1? But in case of a draw Im going with the Asian lines.
