Villarreal have lost only one of their last 10 La Liga road trips

Both teams have scored in 11 of Villarreal’s last 15 league games

Both teams have scored in four of Bilbao’s last five league matches

Net set to bulge at both ends

This looks a good time for Athletic Bilbao to be bumping into Villarreal, who are winless in five league games and were in Europa League action with Salzburg on Thursday.

However, Bilbao are extremely inconsistent and they can’t always be trusted to capitalise on what seem gilt-edged opportunities. Marcelino Garcia Toral’s men were emphatic 4-0 winners at Cadiz last time out, but they had won only three of their previous 12 games prior to that.

Given Villarreal are superior in the league table and they have lost only one of their last ten La Liga road trips, backing goals at both ends may be a safer alternative.

Both teams have scored in 11 of Villarreal’s last 15 league games, while the net has also bulged at both ends in four of Bilbao’s last five league encounters.

It was also 1-1 when these sides locked horns earlier in the season and given Villarreal have drawn four of their last five league clashes, we predict a repeat result here.
