西甲 02:45 切爾達 - 畢爾包
Celta de Vigo – Atletic Bilbao
This match is one which is most important to Athletic Bilbao. Celta de Vigo are sitting in 11th position in La Liga at the moment with 44 points and they can of course not relegate, but European Football is also out of reach. So their season in La Liga is done. That might as well be the reason for the bad form in La Liga lately (L L W L L) as it does not matter anymore for Celta. These losses include a lose against Betis(15) at home and against Eibar at home (8). Celta did score 6 goals in these 5 games and scored at least one goal in 3 of their last 5 games. So it is obvious that Celta does not pay that much attention on La Liga and why blame them with semi-final Europe league to come. Celta focus will be all on the semi-final and they won’t care much about the game against Bilbao. Celta might even choose to rest players in this game and rotate their team. At Celta side Planas (10) and Rossi (18) will be out for this game as is Hernandez (23) due to a red card.
Celta have a semi-final in Europa Leagua to come
Celta might rest players and rotate
Celta did only win one of their last five games
Athletic Bilbao has everything to play for. They are currently in 6th position in La Liga with 59 points, 1 point ahead of Sociedad and 4 behind Villareal. So everything is still possible for Athletic Bilbao. That everything is possible for them and that they have something to fight for can be seen in their recent form (W W W L W). Bilbao are showing that they are willing to fight in every game for that European ticket. Bilbao scored 11 goals in this 5 games which makes an average of 2.2 per game and conceded 5 which makes only one goal per match. Bilbao also won the last 4 editions between them and Celta de Vigo so they now how to beat them. Bilbao will face Celta de Vigo at full strength as they have no injury’s or ruled out players.
Bilbao are still fighting for their European ticket
Bilbao are in excellent form lately
My pick will be Bilbao to win @1.70. Because Celta might rest players and are done for the season I find a win and BTTS to risky as I see Bilbao get a clean sheet here.
