La Liga Matchday 5 Odds, Picks & Predictions: Elche vs. Athletic Bilbao
Elche vs. Athletic Bilbao
Another team likely to be staving off relegation all season long is Elche, as they come into this match with a record of 1-3-1 through four games. Their goal differential of -8 is amongst the worst in La Liga, ahead of only the aforementioned Cadiz and Getafe.
As for Athletic Bilbao, there’s a lot to be proud of thus far, with a record of 2-2-1, picking up wins over Real Sociedad and Valencia, two quality teams on the table. Their last time out was a 0-1 loss to Espanyol, a match in which they were close throughout but failed to convert their chances.
With three goals on the young season, Asier Villalibre leads the way in the striker department, and I expect him to find pay dirt here.
Pick: Athletic Bilbao (-105)
