Spain – Primera Division: Athletic Bilbao vs. Malaga Betting Preview

Athletic Bilbao is playing very good this season and 5 rounds until the end of the season they are standing at the 4th position which leads in qualifications for Champions League.


Sevilla beat Betis in city derby yesterday and now they come closer to Athletic Bilbao with only 3 points less in fight for the 4th position, but Bilbao have one match less.

Athletic recent form is pretty solid. They lost only once on their last 8 matches (4-3-1).

For today’s match they will be without Ekiza (1/0 d), Gurpegi (27/2 m), Mikel Rico (29/5 m), Iñigo Pérez (0/0 m), Ibai Gómez (18/8 f) and Kike Sola (5/1 f).

On the other side, Malaga is standing at the middle of the table without ambitions. They also have some problems with unavailable players.

Flavio Ferreira (13/0 d), Sergio Sánchez (27/0 d), Gámez (25/0 d), Tissone (26/1 m), Duda (20/2 m) and Samu (22/3 f) are all out.

Atheltic Bilbao play very good at home where they scored at least one goal on every home match this season.

On the other side, Malaga’s recent away performance is pretty good. They won the last 3 away matches and on every match they scored 2 goals.

I expect goals here, at least three.

Athletic Bilbao vs. Malaga Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.8 (Bet365)
