Betis vs Athletic Bilbao – La Liga Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Match Day 31 encounter, with Betis taking on Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday the 21st of April, 2021, at Estadio Benito Villamarín.

Betis hosted Valencia on Sunday, took the lead twice, but still failed to win the game, getting equalized twice. Their current form reads; DDDWL. The end of game week 31 found them sitting 6th in the table, on 48 points, one below 5th-placed Villarreal. They have 14W, 6D and 11L, having drawn in three matches in a row now. Goals, 42 scored, 45 conceded. Coach Manuel Pellegrini played a 4-2-3-1 formation against Valencia last weekend, with Juanmi up front. It was Nabil Fekir who opened the scoring in the 12th minute and Sergio Canales who made it 2-1 for Betis just before halftime. The Verdiblancos got equalized for a second time in the 61st minute, from the penalty spot, and couldn’t score a third goal in the remainder of the game.  As hosts, Betis have now drawn in two consecutive matches, as they had drawn with Atlético Madrid as well, 1-1, before last weekend’s 2-2 with Valencia.

Athletic did not play in La Liga last weekend, they had the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona in Seville, a game that as you most probably already know went Barcelona’s way, 0-4, after a goalless first half. Athletic’s most recent La Liga match is a goalless draw with Deportivo Alavés 10 days ago, at home. Their current form reads; LDDLD. They are on 37 points from 30 games (they have one in hand), sitting 11th in the table. They have 9W, 10D and 11L, having drawn in four consecutive La Liga games now. Goals, 39 scored, 33 conceded. Coach Marcelino played a 4-4-2 formation against Barcelona last weekend, with Raúl García and Iñaki Williams up front. Truth is, Athletic left a lot to be desired offensively, focused entirely on their defence, did ok until the 60th minute, but then, in no more than 12-13 minutes, they conceded four goals(!), losing a second Copa del Rey title in two weeks. Be reminded, earlier this month they lost to Real Siociedad as well, 1-0, in the 2019-20 season final.

In the reverse fixture back in November, Athletic triumphed 4-0 in Bilbao.

A 1-0 victory for the hosts is predicted at full-time.

Date: Wednesday, 21st of April, 2021.

Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarín

Kick-off time: 20:00 (GMT+2).
