Athletic Bilbao - Villarreal betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 21:00 on 21/02/2021 played @ San Mamés Barria

Though Athletic Bilbao definitely have a shot at winning this match, they’ll need to work for it. Villarreal are somewhat stronger, but the home-field advantage may be what the hosts need to shift the balance in their favour.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that The Yellow Submarine are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

The Lions are here on the back of a convincing 0:4 away victory against Cádiz in the previous round. They played confidently throughout the match – most experts predicted a narrow win, but few expected such a rout for the opposition.

Last round’s proceedings didn’t end too well for Villarreal. They struggled throughout the game against Real Betis and never managed to catch up, resulting in a surprising 1:2 home loss.

A quick look at the recent trends reveals a solid record for Athletic Bilbao, who have managed to score 5 times in their previous 3 matches. This means that markets like BTTS or Over 5 Goals are worth your attention.

With their recent performances in mind, we can expect Villarreal to perform quite well offensively. They recorded over 5 goals in their latest 3 away games – the lack of home-field advantage isn’t a big factor for them.

Villarreal are in place 6th going into round 24, which is an overall decent effort. Close to half the season is still ahead of them, though, and resistance to moving further up the table will be harsh.

If there’s one thing to note about the history of this matchup, it’s a fact their matches tend to end in a draw. Several matches this season ended inconclusively, so it neems neither team is able to reliably tip the scales one way or another.

Based on both teams’ previous performances, an Over 2.5 Goals bet is very likely to win. The returns are somewhat limited at the odds of 2.38, but it’s still an incredibly safe bet.
