Athletic Bilbao vs Espanyol Prediction
Athletic Bilbao take on Espanyol in a crucial clash in La Liga on Saturday. Athletic Bilbao and Espanyol are only split in the league on goal difference so this should be a close affair.
Bilbao heads into this contest with a 2-0 loss against Valencia on Sunday, while Espanyol enters into this match after a 3-1 win against Real Valladolid at the RCDE Stadium.
Athletic Bilbao made a poor start to the season, but the club bounce back from the disappointment of relegation. Bilbao have lost just two games in their last eight league matches and are steadily moving up the table despite having lost 12 of their 26 games.
Espanyol, on the other hand, are also on a struggling run of form this season but have performed exceptionally well for the past few weeks. The club are on a five-game unbeaten streak and have improved to 9-6-11.
Athletic Bilbao will be clear favorites to win this game, but Espanyol are undoubtedly a dangerous side on their day. Both teams have performed equally good in their last five games.
The outcome of the match is unpredictable as both sides have the potential to win this game but considering the past performances and scoring abilities we predict the Total Goals will be Under 2.5.
Athletic Bilbao vs Espanyol Prediction: Total Goals- Under 2.5 @ 1.70 at Pinnacle Sports
Alaves vs Eibar Prediction
Alaves will take on Eibar in the LaLiga competition at Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz) on Saturday. Alaves entered the weekend riding a four-game unbeaten streak and playing its best football of the season with a remarkable 2-1 win at Villarreal on Saturday. The win brought the club back into the top five of La Liga table and with less than a third of the season to go, Alaves are still in contention for that fourth Champions League place.
Eibar picked up all three points as Sergi Enrich scored in the 87th minute to secure a 1-0 victory over Celta Vigo last game. The win moved the Eibar from eleventh place to ninth place in the tournament, but still the club sits in no-man’s land, eight back of a Champions League place and eleven above the drop.
Both teams have already met this season which ended for Eibar victory with a 2-1 score. Eibar will also be in good confidence after a last gasp win with Vigo side. We predict Eibar will come out as a winner in this game.

Barcelona vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction
Barcelona enjoyed another breathtaking performance on Saturday evening thanks to a sensational 1-0 victory over Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, advancing to the Copa del Rey final for the sixth straight year. Barcelona sits at the top of the LaLiga having lost just 2 games out 26 games played in the tournament.
On the other hand, Rayo, promoted this season, hasn’t won in five matches and is second-to-last in the 20-team standings. The game for Barcelona at home against Rayo Vallecano should be an easy affair. We expect Barcelona will register a simple victory here. Also, the total goals expected in this game will be Over 3.25.
