Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad prediction
The Spanish Laliga round 20 will this Saturday feature a Basque derby as Athletic Bilbao host rivals Real Socided. The host will want to replicate their previous home record of 100% win even as they want to play the European League next season. Meanwhile the visitors will look forward to another victory, after a 1-0 win in the Copa del rey against Malaga, thanks to Galilea’s own. As it stands, these two stands are only separated by 6 points, with Athletic Bilbao on 4th position, while Sociedad sit on 6th. A win for the host will mean they will be equal with Barcelona who will play later on. Both sides’ dreams of playing European elite football stays alive and looking at their most recent results, this tie should be a showpiece and maximum points can go either way.
The San Mames owners have what it takes to win this game, having collected maximum points in four of their last games at home and drawn one, they seem to have mastered to guard their honour at home. The Lions last 3 home games saw them win with clean sheets, with the most recent 1-0 win against Las Palmas. The overall performance of their last five games, resulted in four back to back wins and a draw. Ernesto Alguacil’s men will want to avoid another defeat from the visitors, having lost 3-0 last time out. A build-up on a 3-0 win against Eibar in their most recent tie will solidify their 4th place on the table.
For the San Sebastian this could be a very big mountain once again, barely a week after snatching a 1-0 late winner against Malaga in the round 16 of Copa del Rey. Sociedad’s last five matches resulted in 3 goalless draws, they seemed to have rediscovered their scoring ways in the 1-1 draw against Alaves. Imanol Valverde’s troops boosts of a strong backline, conceding only a goal in their last fixtures, if they can maintain that clean sheet and score some goals, then it will be all smiles heading back home. Sociedad won last time out against the host, so is another win inevitable here, but that has to come by a bigger price, looking at well the host is organized and ambitious on their home soil. We reckon this will be an entertain match, we however, find it hard to separate these two sides. If both teams put on their recent selves’ form, then we envisage the first half to end levelled. Hence, Our Athel. Bilbao vs. Real Sociedad prediction is that 1st half draw in this match. We recommend a 1st half draw market.
