Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis Preview

Saturday’s second game in LaLiga comes from San Mamés, where two teams that don’t seem to have much to play to meet. Athletic may still have ambitions to sneak into the Europa League, but they will really need a good end to the season if they are to make it.

The Basque giants have tied both matches since the restart. They tied Atleti to a 1-1 draw at San Mamés in their first game before tying their local rivals Eibar 2-2 in a lively game midweek. It wasn’t a particularly compelling display, but Athletic fans would have been pleased to see young striker Asier Villalibre hit the target again with Aritz Aduriz’s retirement accelerating the desire to find the next Basque striker.

Meanwhile, Real Betis have made a disappointing return to action, somewhat in line with their overall season. Having lost the derby, his midweek home game was announced as “must win” for Rubi. For long periods, it looked like they would lose it, but a late rally seemed to have given them the victory when Cristian Tello shot home just 3 minutes after Sergio Canales had leveled the game from the point. However, there was a final turn in the queue when Roberto Soldado hit late to deny Betis two points.

Rubi is still in charge, but many now see it as inevitable that he will be replaced this summer, almost regardless of how the results go between now and the end of the campaign. The hectic schedule and complications with appointing a new boss during this period may be the only thing keeping him on the job for now.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Athletic

Unfortunately, there is not much to love about Betis right now and they look and feel like a team that believes in nothing as a lot of people are not taking advantage of their potential. Athletic is usually strong at San Mamés and if they can replicate their performance against Atlético Madrid in their last home game, they should have enough to fire Betis in a game they generally win.
