Daily Tip – Bilbao to win battle of the Basques


Athletic Bilbao welcome Basque neighbours Eibar to the San Mames on Friday and Los Leones should have too much for their small town rivals.

Many of us purists have a soft spot for Athletic due to their selection ethos and gung-ho way of playing, and Jose Angel Ziganda seems to be getting his boys in shape after a frustrating start to life in the hot seat.

Real Sociedad have been their traditional local rivals but it is Eibar who are winning the race to be the top Basque side in La Liga this season and will relish the trip down from the mountains.

However, Los Leones have won the last four league meetings between these sides and I think they can repeat the trick here.

Notably, they have done so with both scoring in the two most recent games at the San Mames and I can see that being the outcome again at 59/20.

There are plenty of other options elsewhere tonight but the one I fancy the most is the 7/4 for Rennes to win at Dijon.

The home side have not cut the mustard in recent weeks (couldn’t help myself), failing to win any of their last five while Les Rouges et Noirs have generally been going along nicely.

Two wins from their last four on the road bodes well and I really like the away win here.
