Elche to win
The situation here is pretty straightforward – Elche must win to keep any hope of staying alive, while Athletic Bilbao will end in the middle of the table regardless of the outcome of the last game. With that in mind, our prediction is that Elche will win this game because they have a huge motive, which cannot be said for Bilbao.
Less than 2.5 goals in total
Considering that both teams average less than 2.5 goals per game (Elche 2.35, Athletic Bilbao 2.32), we think betting on less than 2.5 goals in total in this game is a good decision. . That being said, it’s the last round and we often see more goals than usual in these games, but Elche still has a reason to fight so they’re more likely to play hard and be careful. After all, six of the last eight La Liga games for Elche have registered a total of under 2.5 goals, while the same goes for five of Athletic Bilbao’s last eight.
Both teams to score – No
Although both sides have scored in three of the last four h2h matches between Elche and Athletic Bilbao, their previous encounter this season ended in a 1-0 victory for Bilbao. On top of that, at least one team hasn’t scored in five of Elche’s last eight games in the league, and the same goes for Athletic Bilbao. So betting on at least one team that doesn’t score seems like a reasonable prediction.
Elche vs Athletic Club preview: Elche fights for survival
While the home side still have a chance to stand if they get more points on the last day than Huesca, the away side are safe and sound in the middle of the table. So, let’s take a closer look at the two teams.
The last game of the season is also the most important for Elche in their fight for La Liga survival, but it’s not all in their hands. The team are tied with Huesca with a worse goal difference so they have to get a result against Athletic Bilbao and hope Huesca slips. Elche has been inconsistent in La Liga recently, with five losses, two wins and one draw in the last eight matches. At least the squad are almost in perfect health since only Mojica is out of the upcoming game.
This season for the Athletic Club has been somewhat successful, but also quite disappointing at the same time. First, the team reached the Copa del Rey final, but lost to Barcelona. Prior to that, they also lost the postponed 2020 Copa del Rey final to Real Sociedad. In the league, Athletic did well finishing in the middle of the table, but they failed to secure a place in a European competition. The team will also be missing a few players for the final game, including Berchiche, Capa, Munain, Nolaskoain and Zarraga.
