The statistics strongly favor Athletic Bilbao in their forthcoming matchup with Almeria. Athletic Bilbao defeated Almeria in nine of their fourteen matchups, lost two, and settled for three draws. Furthermore, Bilbao is sixth in the league with 14 points, placing them far ahead of their rivals by an impressive 11 points. They have won five of the last seven meetings at home, drew once, and handing UD Almeria one victory. This shows that they are a dominant force. Athletic Bilbao comes into the game with a commanding statistical lead thanks to their impressive goal differential of 19-7 in their favor.
While the injury absence of crucial players like Peru Nolakoain and Inigo Ruiz De Galarreta can raise questions. Athletic Bilbao seems prepared to meet the challenge. Their strength and prior victories over Almeria highlight their capacity to secure a successful conclusion. Despite their recent setbacks, Athletic Bilbao is the team to watch as the game progresses due to their past performances and home field advantage.
UD Almeria’s recent performance has continued to be unimpressive, which was to be expected given their status as a young team in the tough La Liga division. When evaluated on an average scale, their poor performance is obvious. They've lost each of their last 10 games, except one against an underdog, and haven't won any. Additionally, they went 0-1-2 on the road this La Liga season with no goals in any of their three games. Almeria averages just 0.4 goals per game while playing teams like Athletic Bilbao, a dismal average of 1.4 goals behind. Meanwhile, players like Marc Pubil Pages, Martin Svidersky, and Lucas Robertone would be absent from the action.
Expert Betting Tips
Betting on Athletic Bilbao emerging victorious appears to be a reliable choice, especially given the undervaluation of Athletic Bilbao according to bookmakers' odds. Delving into their head-to-head encounters and considering the pitch conditions and home advantage further strengthens this assertion.
Yet, a prudent focus on both teams' goal-scoring prowess could be advantageous, given their commendable average goal statistics against each other, despite Almeria's previous loss to Athletic Bilbao.
