Athletic Bilbao are sitting comfortable in 7th place in the La Liga and are another team impressing in the league so far this season. Their home form is one of the best in the league at this point with 15 points from 21 games. It’s away where there form hasn’t been the best and would need to improve on that front if they are to fight for a European place.
Same can be said for a talented side like Celta Vigo who are not enjoying the best of seasons but not the worst despite the talented side at their disposal but their away form is not one to drool over with only win away from home – that was way back in September in a 2-0 win over Espanyol.
Despite Athletic’s recent defeat Real Betis, they’re home form is one of the most impressive throughout the whole of La Liga against probably the worst away sides in the division.
