After cruising to a 4-0 win over Real Betis the week prior, Athletic Bilbao was brought down to earth away at Getafe last weekend. Their 1-1 draw was a first of the campaign and one Gaizka Garitano will be eager for his players to improve upon against strugglers Celta Vigo here.

Friday’s visitors look primed for another relegation battle but won their second league game of 2020-21, beating Granada 3-1 last week. Can they follow it up against tougher opposition? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo Betting Tips

Although it was frustrating to be pegged back, Bilbao couldn’t really complain. Getafe had more possession (52%), shots (11, completed passes, tackles, interceptions and Mauro Arambarri hit the woodwork in the second-half too.

That was all before Angel Rodríguez fired low and hard past Unai Simon, for his fourth goal of the campaign. Still, one point is better than none and their sketchy form of late in that H2H fixture continues. Although Celta is flirting with another battle this term, it’s a double-edged sword for their opponents – as mid-table Granada found out last week.

Iago Aspas created a whopping nine key passes and only had one assist to show for his creative efforts, as he turned playmaker to split Diego Martinez’s side apart.

There were goals for Miguel Baeza and Fran Beltran off the bench, with both hoping to start here. Okay, Yokuslu was sent off in stoppage-time after VAR review upgraded his yellow to a red card, so misses out through suspension. Can the visitors spring a surprise?

Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo Correct Score Predictions

Celta Vigo is unbeaten in their last two meetings with Bilbao, but generally struggle in this H2H fixture (W4, D4, L10).

They’ve conceded 20 goals already this term and a problem area is their slow starts and inability to close out games (10 goals shipped between 0-15, 75-90 minutes). As such, Bilbao is favourite but when you have Aspas, you’re giving yourself a good chance. I’m predicting BTTS here.
