Prediction for Alaves – Athletic Bilbao
Athletic Bilbao to win @ 1.83
Match of the Day 36 of the Santander League that will face the CD Alaves of Mauricio Pellegrino, in front of the Athletic Club of Ernesto Valverde in the stage of Mendizorroza.
Derbi Basque to start the day of Sunday. On the one hand comes the Alavés, 10th ranked with 48 points, of which he has gotten 23 in his stadium (47.9%). Tremendous season of the Pellegrino boys. A newly promoted team, who has reached the final, and has not had any trouble to stay in the category, has even had options to fight for European posts. A mix of veteran and youth, as I have said before, have been the perfect mix for this to be possible.
On the other hand Athletic Club arrives, 6th in the table with 62 points, having got 20 playing as a visitor (32.3%). In the rojiblancos season, we could differentiate two completely different stages, when playing Europa League, and once they were eliminated (I’ll speak more specifically later).
It could be thought that the Alaves, who does not play anything, is going to hang out, but nothing further from reality. I do not doubt even a second that being a Basque derby, and having had rest the last day (before the Betis), will not go out for the victory.
But in spite of it, I believe that Athletic, when playing the European posts, will have a plus of motivation, although it will not be easy to get the points. But in addition to that plus, of which I speak, is a team much more worked since the spine has been playing for many years together, and in major matches have been able to size.
ALAVES (5 V / 8 E / 4 D):
Victories —> Granada / Betis / Valencia / Real Sociedad / Villarreal
Draws —> Sporting / Depor / Málaga / Las Palmas / Leganés / Atletico Madrid / Sevilla / Eibar
Defeats —> Real Madrid / Espanyol / Barça / Osasuna
ATHLETIC CLUB (6 V / 2 E / 9 D):
Victories —> Depor / Granada / Real Sociedad / Osasuna / Eibar / Celta
Draws —> Espanyol / Leganés
Defeats —> Sporting / Málaga / Real Madrid / Las Palmas / Betis / Barça / Valencia / Sevilla / Villarreal
As for these numbers, it is seen that the Alavés has scored 3 points more than Athletic, and has only lost in its stadium before the big two, Madrid and Barça, against Espanyol, and against Osasuna (it was in a match between Week where team “B” came out). So to think that Athletic has more than 50% chance would be a mistake, at first, but not, and explain why.
Since Athletic was knocked out by Apoel in the Europa League’s sixteenth round, he has played a total of 12 games, of which he has won 9 and lost 3, without having drawn even once. And more specifically, he has played 5 as a visitor, having lost to Sevilla (one of the strongest in his stadium, and having been the first visiting party to play after the elimination), and against Villarreal, another of the Stronger in their stadium. And having won the Real Sociedad, and Éibar, in Anoeta and Ipurúa, in other Basque derbies, and Celta in Balaídos, so that although the Celta was not playing anything, they are not a team from the bottom Of the table.
Precisely for that reason I like this forecast for this match, Athletic has improved significantly since its elimination because it is not having to rotate as much as if it were still in that competition, and Valverde is able to count on Aduriz all he wants, player that I could not stand to play two games a week, surely.
As for the casualties, both teams have the full templates, so none will have any casualties.
NOTE: I know it is a repeated forecast, but besides being a better quota, I think I have contributed new data in the argument.
