Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips.
This betting preview contains recent form, possible lineups, injury news, match predictions and betting tips for Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao.
Fixture: Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao
League: La Liga
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Butarque
Date: Saturday 14th January
Kick-off: 12:00pm GMT
The defeat to Real Betis has left Leganes still languishing above the relegation places by 4 points. Still without a win in their last 6 games, Asier Garitano’s will hope for something of a miracle against Athletico Bilbao who themselves are not in the most impressive of forms but find themselves in a healthy position in 7th place.
However, Bilbao have not tasted an away victory since September while Leganes hold the poorest home form in the division with only one win in their eight games.
With both Leganes and Athletico Bilbao with both poor home and away forms respectively, most neutrals will be satisfied with a draw in this fixture but let’s not take anything away from the performances of Bilbao this season who a week ago beat Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey and that breeds confidence.
All in all, we are leaning towards an away victory in this one. Despite Athletic’s poor form on their travels they are the favourite and should create just enough to edge it.
