Our match prediction:
High-flying Athletic Bilbao will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Real Betis at their San Mames Barria on Sunday evening. The Lions are on a three-match winning run in the league and they did well to beat Valencia in the Europa League last 16, first leg, in midweek. The hosts head into the match high on confidence and despite the fact that Real Betis outplayed the likes of Espanyol and Granada in previous two league fixtures, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Sunday’s football game. It is well known that Athletic Bilbao are a real force to be reckoned with at home and there is every chance the Basques will record their eighth home triumph of the season. Aritz Aduriz has been in a fine form this season and the experienced forward is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
