Tipster’s Angle

These two teams are known to produce a lot of draws against each other and wouldn’t be surprising if this ends in a draw. But with Valencia playing at home, they will have an added home advantage.

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.95

All the last four head-to-head matches ended in a draw and all four matches had both teams scoring. Even the reverse fixture of this match ended in a 1-1 draw in Bilbao. Also, three of the last five head-to-head matches hosted by Valencia had both teams scoring. Valencia has scored a goal in nine of the last ten matches across competitions, while Athletic Bilbao has also done the same. Valencia has seen both teams scoring in eight of the last ten matches that they played. Bilbao on the other hand has seen both teams scoring in five of their last ten matches. So, it is very likely that both teams will find the back of the net at 1.95 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Tip: Valencia Draw No Bet @ 1.85

Valencia has won four of their last 11 games against Athletic Bilbao, with the latter winning one and the remaining six games ending in draws. Valencia has gone undefeated against Athletic Bilbao in the last two seasons, with all four meetings ending in a draw. In the last ten matches, Valencia has won three of their ten matches in all competitions. In their last ten matches across all competitions, Athletic Bilbao has won six, drawn two, and lost two. Valencia has won five and drawn one Copa del Rey match so far this season, and they will look to build on that momentum and at the very least hold Athletic Bilbao to a draw.
