Competition: La Liga
Market: Girona to beat Athletico Bilbao
Odds: 11/8 @ Bet365
La Liga is back this weekend with another massive round of games. Spain’s top league has been one that has continued to surprise and excite this year with the league table remaining incredibly tight. With this in mind, Girona host Athletic Bilbao in a mid-table battle.
Girona have been in fairly good form this season and they will be looking to continue their rise. After 21 matches they have won seven, drawn seven and lost seven, while they have scored 29 goals and conceded 29 times. In their last five they have managed to win once, draw twice and lose twice, which has seen them onto 28 points. Girona are currently 11 points clear of the relegation zone and they will feel they a European place is within reach, and they are not in the worst form lately, as they are unbeaten in their last three.
Athletic Bilbao have been in similar form to Girona this season and they are looking to leapfrog their hosts with a win. After 21 games they have won six, drawn nine and lost six, while they have scored 24 goals and conceded 23 times. In their last five they have managed to win twice and draw three games which has seen them onto 27 points. Bilbao are currently 10 points clear of the relegation zone and will want to increase this gap, but with the two teams in such similar form, home advantage could be the deciding factor in this clash.
