Our match prediction:
After dropping a two-goal advantage in a 3-2 loss to Granada, Las Palmas will be looking to put icing on the cake on a very successful season when they host Athletic Bilbao at their Estadio de Gran Canaria on Sunday evening. Los Amarillos are tough to beat at home and you should have in mind that they are eyeing their ninth home win of the season. Quique Setien rested some of his first-team regulars against Granada, but he is widely expected to field the best possible side against Athletic Bilbao. The Basques recorded a 2-1 win over Celta Vigo at the weekend, with the team clinching their spot in the Europa League. Both teams have been impressive up front of late and we predict that both teams will find the net in Sunday’s football game. Taking everything into account, we should see goals galore in Las Palmas.
