Athletic Bilbao – Valencia

Athletic Bilbao hosts Valencia in a match from the 26th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s see what’s happening with these two teams in our vip soccer bets for it.

Athletic are having a difficult transition season after Ernesto Valverde left the club for Barcelona. The Basques are clearly having a tough time to replace a capable manager like Valverde. Athletic are currently 12th in La Liga’s standings with 31 points and this is an underachievement for this great club.

Right now Athletic have 31 points won and a record of 7 wins, 10 draws and 8 defeats. In their last five games the Basques lost twice, made two draws and won just once – against the outsider Malaga in the previous round.

Most surely this will be a season to forget for Athletic Bilbao. But they do not have any other choice – they have to finish it, doing it as well as they possibly could.

Now Valencia are coming to the San Mames Barria.

For Valencia this season is a redemption after their last campaign, which was was one of the worst. Now Valencia are 4th in La Liga with 49 points and they are very close to returning to the Champions League. The Los Che have 8 points advantage in front of the 5th Villarreal in the fight for a CL qualification.

Right now Valencia have a record of 15 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats. They had a difficult period lately, but now they in a very good run of three consecutive wins in the league. In their last game Marcelino’s boys enjoyed a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad at home. Santi Mina was the big hero for Valencia, scoring both goals for the home team.
