Babazorros are unbeaten at home but couldn’t win in the last three games in the league. During the previous week, Alaves have lost away with 3-0 against Atletico Madrid, but the result doesn’t correspond with what was shown on the pitch, and wouldn’t be undeserved if Babazorros got a draws.
Just two days later, Athletic Bilbao, led by a new coach, Guizzar Garitano, won against Girona, which ended their run of 13 games without success in La Liga. The Lions are on 18 place in the standings and still don’t have a win in an away game. Athletic Bilbao had a clean sheet in just 13% of all their games this season. None of the clean sheets of the team was in an away match.

The home team is playing quality football the position of the team in the standings corresponds to what has been shown so far. Тhe last win of Bilbao in an away game was in April, and versus a strong performer at home like Alves, will be hard for them to get a point.
