Celta Vigo vs Athletic Bilbao predictions and betting tips for tonight’s La Liga fixture including the reasons for our selection. Can Athletic Bilbao climb away from the relegation zone with a win tonight or will Celta consolidate their place in mid-table?
It has been a tough season for these two teams and a defeat here for Celta Vigo would have them looking over their shoulder at the La Liga relegation places. They are five points ahead of tonight’s opponents who currently occupy the last of the relegation spots.
Athetic Bilbao are currently on a four match unbeaten run since sacking their manager and this probably isn’t the best time to be playing the side from the Basque country. They’ve only conceded one goal in those four matches and they will hope to keep things tight at the back again tonight. Celta have failed to score in their last two games and despite one of them being away at Barcelona, it is hard to see a lot of goals being scored tonight. The first of our Celta Vigo vs Athletic Bilbao predictions is for under 1.5 goals to be scored in the match and the odds for this are 5/2 with bet365.
Celta drew their last home match in La Liga 0-0 and it would be no surprise at all if this one followed the same path. The hosts have kept clean sheets in their last two matches now and Athletic have failed to score in their last two away league matches. It has been a tough season for both the sides and that could be made worse for Celta Vigo if star man Maxi Gomez is sold to Atletico Madrid, where he has been linked after bagging eight goals this season.
A relegation fight looms for at least one of these sides and there is every chance we won’t get a winner in tonight’s fixture, the correct score predictions for this match is a 0-0 draw and the odds are 9/1 with bet365. When betting on a 0-0, always use ‘no goalscorer’, the odds will be the same but if an own goal separates the sides then a no goalscorer bet would still be a winner – 0-0 would not.
