Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds

Can Athletic Club stay in the race for European qualification?

Last weekend, Marcelino’s side drew 1-1 against Villarreal, taking the lead through Raúl García at the Estadio de la Cerámica.

In truth, it was a disappointing result for Athletic given that their hosts made 11 changes due to their Champions League commitments.

Thus, the Lions have won just three of their last eight matches, meaning they remain eighth, one point behind Villarreal and nine behind Real Sociedad.

The Bilbao side will need a strong end to the season to snatch a European spot.

Celta de Vigo, meanwhile, also entered this campaign with European aspirations, having finished eighth last time out.

However, O Celtiña slipped to 12th place last weekend after a 1-0 loss at the RCDE Stadium against Espanyol.

Thus, Eduardo Coudet’s team have won only one of their last eight games and seem ready for an unforgettable end to the season.

Will Athletic win the three points at San Mamés?

In central defence, Iñigo Martínez remains absent but Yeray Álvarez is fit again.

He will therefore partner Daniel Vivian at the back with Unai Núñez absent.

Iñaki Williams will continue to lead the line having played 226 successive La Liga games, dating back six years.

Eduardo Coudet’s side are struggling to score goals, having netted just once in their last four matches.

And this despite the departure of Denis Suárez, Franco Cervi, Brais Méndez, Santi Mina and Iago Aspas last weekend.
