Athletic Bilbao vs Ostersunds Prediction 2 November 2017

Tournament: Europa League
Location: San Mames Stadium
Match date: 02.11.2017 at 20:05

On November 2 2017 at 20:05 in Bilbao at the San Mames Stadium in the upcoming game of the Europa League group stage fourth round the local Athletic will meet their guests from Sweden Ostersunds.

Athletic haven’t shown such poor results as they did at the start of the championship for a long time already. The loss to Barcelona 0:2 last Saturday was the second one in a row and the fifth one in their 10 games played since the start of the Primera. They aren’t successful in their Euro Cups campaign either. In the first three games of the Europa League groups stage the Basks only managed to gain two points with 2:3 goal difference. These results let them stay on the third place in the table of the group four points below the second position letting the team take part in the play-offs.

As for Ostersunds, they have already made a few mistakes in the Swedish national elite division and yet they are among the favorites of the championship and they are still in the race for the places in the Euro cups zone. They seem to be in rather good conditions now and the victory against Elfsborg last Saturday was the third one in a row for the team. They also showed unexpectedly good results in their first three games of the Europa League group stage as they outplayed Zorya 0:2 and Hertha 1:0 and drew Athletic 2:2 which let them become the leaders of the Group J.

As we have already mentioned before, the teams drew 2:2 in their first game played against each other on October 18. Anyway, Spanish fans and especially basks will definitely support their team in the best way possible. That’s why we think that the hosts are the obvious favorites of the upcoming game and they are much more likely to win this time.
