Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca Prediction
Another one very good football game to place our bet and win some cash on Monday night. Both teams will play very cautious, but Athletic Bilbao are absolute favourites to win all three points here. They play in front of their fans and ball possession will be their main objective for the match. They will have a hard job to score against a teams who will play on counterattacks, but they will play strong and aggressive in attack. It will be a tough game without lots of scoring chances and we don't expect to see lots of goals.
