Our football match prediction:
Following a goalless draw with Getafe on the opening day of the season, Athletic Bilbao recorded back-to-back wins over the likes of Eibar and Girona in previous two league fixtures. The Lions have been impressive at the back at the start of the season and they aim to keep their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Spanish elite division. Aritz Aduriz scored his second goal of the season in the 2-0 win over Girona and the opposition defenders are likely to have their work cut out for them when facing the 36-year-old striker. Las Palmas are not sharp as they used to be last season and we predict that the Basques are going to extend their winning run in La Liga to three matches. A man to watch in the home team will be Vitolo, who signed a loan deal with los Amarillos in the summer transfer window.
