FanDuel have the Valencia as -185 outsiders heading into this match while the Athletic Club are strong favorites at odds of +550. A total of 2 goals are predicted.

With a record of 13 wins, nine losses and 12 draws after 34 games, Athletic Club enter into this game in 8th place in the league. The team has had nine wins in the last seventeen matches, netting a total of 41 goals so far while conceding 34. This has predominantly been thanks to the capabilities of Inaki Williams, who has three goals, and Raul Garcia who has three. In their most recent match, The Lions took all three points from Athletico Madrid 2-0.

Valencia have a tally of 43 points so far this campaign and will maximize every opportunity in front of them. They dropped points against Levante 1-1 last Saturday. The squad has had four draws in the last seven matches and to date, they’ve recorded 10 wins, 11 losses and 13 draws. When they have achieved success, it’s likely been due to the actions of Goncalo Guedes and Carlos Soler. Can the pair guide The Bats to a win here?

Going into this clash, Athletic Club will be without Oihan Sancet. Valencia have not ruled out any players.
