Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Valencia and Athletic Club face each other at an empty Estadio de Mestalla in what is expected to be an exciting game. Valencia continue to struggle on the travels, with the team failing to grab something from the Villarreal game, but they did well to beat Osasuna in their last home fixture. Los Che aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Athletic Club.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to build on a routine 3-1 win over Mallorca. Athletic Club quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss at Barcelona, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for Albert Celades’ troops. Anyhow share of spoils is on the cards as the two teams seem to be evenly matched ahead of day 33. Valencia full back Jose Gaya returns from suspension.
