We offer a forecast for the Spanish championship match, in which Athletic Bilbao will host Cadiz on October 1. Will the guests be able to resist? – the answer is in our material.
Last season in Spanish La Liga, Athletic managed to get 13 wins in 38 rounds and drew 12 times, which brought 51 points and 11th final place. The weakest link of the Bilbao team was the attack line, which scored only 41 goals – the worst among the first 12 teams of Examples. It must be recalled that there is only one foreign legionnaire in Gaiska Garitano’s charges.
The Basques did not violate this principle in the offseason. The team didn’t sell anyone, but it didn’t buy either, limiting itself to internal transitions and strengthening the main squad by youth players.
The start of the new season for the “red-whites” was unsuccessful – a defeat at the hands of “Granada” (0: 2). The next round for the hosts took place two weeks later, when last Sunday the Lions outplayed Eibar (2: 1).
Only Ibai , who has an injured hand, will not be able to take part in today’s game .
“ Cadiz ” last season of Segunda waited for its finest hour and returned to Example. In 42 rounds of the longest season in Spain’s second-strongest league, the Yellow-Blues have won 19 wins and 12 draws, bringing 69 points and second place.
The vice-champion stood out as the best indicator for the quality of defense, with rather modest indicators of attack. In August, the ” yellow-blues ” seriously strengthened the line of attack.
The team was joined by forward Alvaro Jimenez from Birmingham, who moved for 2.7 million euros, Choco Lozano from Girona (2.5 million), right winger Ivan Alejo from Getafe (2 million). It should be noted that Alvaro Negredo returned from Al-Nasr .
The debut in a new tournament for themselves, Alvaro Server’s charges were unsuccessful – two defeats against Osasuna (0: 2) and Sevilla and a victory over Huesca (2: 0), for which we made a forecast .
In the Quesada team infirmary .
Athletic won all home matches
Cadiz have scored in 7 of 10 last away matches
Both teams have scored in 4 of the last 7 head-to-head matches
Bilbao was able to win 1 of the last 5 head-to-head matches
The last personal match ended in victory for Athletics (1: 0)
” Atletico ” is experiencing hard times, and one win at the start of a modest “Eibar” to be confirmed. ” Cadiz ” has a far from stellar line-up, but at the same time will be able to cause trouble for opponents from the Elite series.
It’s hard to judge the strength of the visiting team after a short pause, but we will give preference to the bet on total, which today may exceed the indicators of personal meetings.
Our prediction is that the total is over 2 goals and we bet on this according to the Marafonbet betting line with the odds of 1.97
