The away team is currently in the 16th position of the league, with 16 points won, after 4 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Espanyol, by (1‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Granada, by (4‑1).

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 8 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first.

Las Palmas have passed through serious difficulties this season, however, in the last match, they conquered a 4-1 victory against Granada. Contrary to their opponent, the visiting team favours the ball possession and the organized attacks, due to the technical quality of their players. However, Las Palmas have big weaknesses on the time to score in the opponent's goal. Jonathan Viera is the best scorer with only 4 scored goals. Ángel, Castellano, Bigas and Alcaraz are injured, and Roque is punished and won't play this match. 

Confirmed Lineup: Javi Varas, Aythami Artiles, David Simón, David García, Dani Castellano, Jonathan Viera, E. Culio, Vicente Gómez, S. Araújo, Tana, N. El Zhar.
Coach: Quique Setién.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is that Athletic Bilbao will score two times. It's expected that Athletic Bilbao will control big part of the match and will take advantage from more opportunities to score. Not only by playing at home, but mainly by the offensive quality of their team. Furthermore, Las Palmas have some weaknesses playing in this condition.
