Betting tip UEFA Europa League: FC Valencia - Athletic Bilbao
Thursday, 17.03.2016 at 19:00 hour
It will be a pure Spanish duel on Thursday for the grid at the quarter finals of the Europe league. After the first match there is everything possible for both teams. However Bilbao has the favourite role at the moment due to the result of the first match. Kick-off at the Mestalla stadium is on Thursday at 7 p.m..
Current Performance of FC Valencia - It seems as is FC Sevilla doesn’t come to life in this season. At the moment they are not even in the upper field of the table. Currently they own the 11th position. To say this is disappointing would be understated. The Europe league is the last hope for them to still play international because in the Spanish league they lost against the FC Barcelona with a score of 0:7 and dropped out of the league. The only convincing performance they have shown was at the Europe league. At the sixteenth finals they scored an incredible end result of 10:0 against Rapid Wien who hasn’t any chance against them. There has also been a mute for the eleven of Gary Neville on the last weekend because they have lost against the rear Levante with a score of 0:1. Even the last three duty matches had been lost by Valencia. We will see if they are able to turn the tide on Thursday.
Current Performance of Athletic Bilbao - On the contrary to rival Valencia, Bilbao has no worries like that at the moment. In the Spanish national league they are on the solid sixth position of the table currently. They have a lead of 10 points to the eight position which would mean no participation of the international championship. This is quite reassuringly. There is also only one point missing to the fifth position of the table. The result of the first match is also in favour for Bilbao because the match at home ended with a score of 1:0. The final goal was scored by Raul Garcia. The rehearsal for the rematch was against Betis Sevilla and ended with a score of 3:1. SO Bilbao had another reason to celebrate. Another good sign is that Bilbao was able to win on the 26th day of play at the Primera Division with a clear result of 3:0 in Valencia. They have won the last five duty matches and in the sixteenth finals they even won against the olympique Marseille in Marseille. As you can see Bilbao is very confident at away matches.
Betting tip for this match - If you take a look at the last results and the performance of Bilbao lately they will give more than 100 percent to fix the promotion. Valencia is missing consistency in this season the rival was just too strong in the last matches. That’s why it is pretty sure that Athletic Bilbao will be able to fix the promotion to the quarter finals. Valencia will leave this championship with their head held high. Our tip: tip X.
