Athletic Bilbao take on Mallorca in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio San Mames on Saturday morning.

Athletic Bilbao come into this match in 10th place on 42 points with a record of 10 wins, 12 draws and 9 losses after a narrow 1-0 loss to Barcelona in their last match. In the defeat against Barcelona, there was only one booking and no scoring in a quiet first half, but Barcelona would have 72% possession in the match and 74% in the second half with 11 attempts at goal and 3 shots on target, eventually breaking through in the 71st minute. Bilbao were held to just six attempts at goal with none of them hitting the target, leaving the Camp Nou with no result to show for their work in the defeat. Raul Garcia leads Bilbao in scoring with 10 goals while Inaki Williams has 6 goals and Ander Capa has a team-high 4 assists this season. Unai Simon is Bilbao’s top goalkeeper, conceding 0.82 goals per 90 minutes with 11 clean sheets in 28 league appearances this season.

Mallorca on the other hand, sit in 18th on 26 points with a record of 7 wins, 5 draws and 19 losses after a 2-0 defeat against Real Madrid in their last match. In the defeat against Madrid, Mallorca fell behind after just 19 minutes and the lead held until Real doubled the advantage in the 56th minute. Mallorca would have their chances in the second half, with three of their four shots on goal coming in the second 45, but in the end, Mallorca would fail to get on the scoreboard and would be left empty-handed at full time. Ante Budimir leads Mallorca in scoring with 9 goals on the year while Salva Sevilla and Aleix Febas each have 3 assists for Mallorca on the year. Manuel Rodriguez is Mallorca’s top goaltender, conceding 1.57 goals per 90 minutes with 4 clean sheets in 30 league appearances this season.

To be honest, it’s hard for me to hold anything against Bilbao, as they’re on a decent run of form, going unbeaten in five straight before a one goal loss to Barcelona which is nothing to sneeze at in my books. Mallorca’s played some stiff competition since the restart, but the fact is that Alaves have been outscored 8-1 in four matches since play resumed and even the one goal couldn’t get them more than a draw against lowly Leganes. I think this is another game that Bilbao’s defense stifles the opposition, so I’ll take Athletic Bilbao to win with both teams to score – no to get the bet into plus money in this match.
