Eibar vs Athletic Bilbao Betting Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Eibar return to La Liga action as they host Athletic Bilbao at the Estadio Municipal De Ipurua on Wednesday. Bilbao are not the best travellers but recent matches between these two have been tight.

Eibar Form


Eibar are currently 16th on the La Liga standings and have won one of their last four matches in La Liga.

Prior to the break they beat Levante at home 3-0 and then lost 2-1 at home to Mallorca. This was followed up with a 2-1 defeat to Real Sociedad at home.  

Their most recent match ended in a 3-1 defeat at Real Madrid. Madrid were too strong as the hosts went 3-0 up before Bigas pulled one back for Eibar in the 60th minute.

Athletic Bilbao Form


Athletic Bilbao currently find themselves in the middle of the La Liga table in 10th. Inconsistency has hampered them especially away from home.

Their run of form before the break consisted of a 1-0 home win against Villareal and then a 2-1 loss away to Granada in the Copa Del Rey. Their last match before the break was a 4-1 win at Real Valladolid.

Bilbao's most recent match ended in a 1-1 home draw against Atletico Madrid. Muniain opened the scoring in the 37th minute before Diego Costa levelled the match for Atletico two minutes later.

Eibar vs Athletic Bilbao Match Up


Eibar and Athletic Bilbao have played out draws in four of their last six encounters so I expect another tight encounter this time around. 

Defensively Bilbao have conceded 10 goals in their last five away matches so I expect Eibar, despite being short on goals, to test their defence.
