Athletic Bilbao against Girona is the last match of round 15 in the La Liga. This season The Lions are playing poorly, and the team is deservingly on 18 place on the standing with 11 points. Athletic Bilbao don’t have a win in La Liga since the first match of the season where they won with 2-1 against Leganes. Still, it has to be noticed that Bilbao have only two defeats at home – against Villarreal and Real Sociedad.
Girona are continuing with their fantastic performance despite this is just their second season in La Liga. Eusebio Sacristán and his players are unbeaten in their away games since the start of the season. With 21 points after 14 games, Girona are eight place in the standings, and it is in the fight for participation in Europa League.
In the last five rounds, Girona is the best team in La Liga after three wins and two draws. Their opponent in this fixture is precisely opposite – they are with three losses and two draws. Girona always start their matches attackingly, and it’s not an accident that they have scored 12 goals in the first half of their games which is 71% of all their goals this season. The possible bets in this match are many – Both Teams to Score, Double chance draw or Girona to Win, but we are on an alternative bet because of the higher odds. I will back Girona to Score in 1st Half, with Girona 2-1 Correct Score.
