Real Valladolid Vs Athletic Bilbao
Real Valladolid prepare for this game following on from a 1-1 La Liga drawn match vs Elche CF.
In that game, Real Valladolid managed 45% possession and 5 shots at goal with 1 on target. The scorer for Real Valladolid was Cyle Larin (4'). For their opponents, Elche got 24 attempts on goal with 10 on target. Tete Morente (96') scored for Elche CF.
José Pacheta's Real Valladolid have seen rewards for their attempts on goal a sum total of 5 times over their past 6 outings. The comparative tally of goals that have been scored against them in those fixtures is 7.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Barcelona in La Liga action, Athletic Bilbao and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Athletic Bilbao managed 37% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Barcelona had 10 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Raphinha (45') was the scorer for Barcelona.
The numbers tell their own story, and Athletic Bilbao have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals in total. In defence, Athletic Bilbao have been far from perfect. That sort of trend isn’t assured to follow through here, however.
Coming into this contest, Athletic Bilbao are without an away win for the past 2 league games.
I'm of the view that Real Valladolid will have a tough ask to register a score against this Athletic Bilbao side who will likely gain the upper hand.
That’s why my selection here is for a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for Athletic Bilbao at the end of the 90 minutes.
