Elche – Athletic Bilbao

Elche and Athletic Bilbao get their La LIga campaign underway when they trade tackles at the Estadio Martínez Valero on Monday. The hosts were saved by the skin of their teeth last season as they finished two points above the relegation zone. Meanwhile, the visitors secured a 10th-placed finish last season and will look to improve on that performance.

After closing the 2020-21 season with two straight victories, Elche picked up where they left off in their opening pre-season outing as they claimed an emphatic 6-1 victory over Atromitos Athens.

Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao head into Monday’s game off the back of a 1-1 friendly draw with Premier League heavyweight Liverpool. They head into the game without a win in their last four La Liga games, picking up one draw and losing on three occasions.

We expect a thrilling contest at the Estadio Martínez Valero as Elche and Athletic Bilbao will be aiming to open their campaign on a good note. However, we are tipping Athletic Bilbao to claim the win as they have found their rhythm following a fine pre-season.

This match will be played on 16/08/2021 at 23:00.
