Athletic vs Espanyol Prediction 4 April 2017

Tournament: Spanish La Liga
Location: San Mames Stadium
Match date: 04.04.2017 at 18:30

On April 4, Tuesday at 18:30 in Bilbao at the San Mames Stadium in the upcoming game of the 30th matchday of the Spanish La Liga the local Athletic play against Espanyol.

Athletic are known to be strong middle-peasants of the Spanish elite division and they finish the campaign just as they are expected to. The victory against Osasuna 1:2 in the latest match let Athletic gain 47 points already and due to the mistake of one of their competitors they managed to shorten the distance to the places in the Euro Cups zone to make it 1 point.

As for Espanyol, they score a lot in the current season, yet their unreliable defense doesn’t let them gain enough points to be among the leaders of the league. They make really a lot of mistakes, yet they have theoretical chances to make it to the Euro Cups zone. Moreover, Espanyol haven’t won in the away matches for more than a month as they lost to Real Madrid and Villarreal and shared points with Celta and Eibar.

There have been five games played between the teams during the last two and a half years and they gained the same number of points in those games. We must also admit that Athletic are one of the best teams of the championship according to the results of the home matches where they gained 33 points in 15 games played. Athletic are the favorites of the upcoming game, of course, yet the difficult schedule may be a serious obstacle for them.
