Competition: La Liga

Market: Espanyol to beat Athletic Bilbao

Odds: 13/5 @ Bet365

Looking to continue their impressive form at the back end of the season, Espanyol will travel to San Mamés Barria on Sunday afternoon.

For José Ángel Ziganda’s Athletic Bilbao side, although The Lions managed to land an impressive seventh-place finish last season and managed to make the Europa League quarter-finals before falling short against finalists Marseille. However, The Red and Blacks have struggled in La Liga this year and coming off the back of a 3-1 loss away at Alaves last weekend, Bilbao have now lost four of their last six and while they have scored in their last eight outings, The Lions have recorded just one clean sheet in their last 10 attempts and have also conceded three goals in three of their last four.

As for David Gallego’s Espanyol side, while The White and Blues did struggle entering the New Year, it appears the visitors have saved their best form for the end of the season. Coming off the back of a 4-1 win away to relegated Malaga last time out, Espanyol have are now unbeaten in their last four and have scored nine while on that run. Their recent success can be put down to the form of 26-year-old Gerard Moreno, along with having 16 for the season, the forward now has four in his last four.
