vs

Athletic Bilbao

We need either Valencia or Athletic Bilbao to draw a blank with our betting prediction. This means punting on BTTS No at 1.80 and needing at least one of the teams to not score.

We’re always monitoring the team news. Combined with the latest form, this helps us secure the best value. Our football experts also take a data-led approach, with the key numbers proving useful.

Key Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao stats:

  • 7 of the last 10 Athletic Bilbao away matches have resulted in BTTS No
  • Athletic Bilbao have kept 6 clean sheets in their past 10 away matches

The 1.80 about the No selection on the Both Teams to Score market is our Copa del Rey tip. This means we need at least one of the teams to draw a blank during the ninety minutes.

If you’re expecting a really tight game between these sides, then No Goalscorer offers a viable alternative and still pays out on own goals.
