FC Barcelona – Athletic Bilbao
Barcelona will welcome Athletic Bilbao at the Camp Nou for matchday 21 of La Liga. In the last confrontation between them, which happened in January 2021, Barca won by 3-2 away. The recent head to head also favors the home side, as they won 5 of their last 10 matches against Bilbao.
The hosts are motivated to this match aftera 2-1 victory against Rayo Vallecano in the King’s Cup, which guaranteed qualification for the next round. Their last La Liga match was also a victory, this time by 2-0 against Elche. They usually play with Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi being the three most advanced players and the chances of goal. The Argentine star is their top scorer with 11 goals so far.
Athletic Bilbao also had a victory in the King’s Cup, against Alcoyana by 2-1, and in their La Liga match, an amazing 5-1 against Getafe. The visitors usually play with Raul Garcia and Inaki Williams as the two most advanced players. Their highlight for this match is certainly Iker Muniain, who is very fast and can help the team on counter attacks through the wings.
Looking at both sides, we believe that Barcelona count with a more organized team and a squad with higher quality. However, Athletic Bilbao have shown a good game model and they should find some chances of goal. That said, we imagine a very open match with chances of goal for both sides.
Bet on: Both Teams to Score
Koln – Arminia Bielefeld
Koln and Arminia Bielefeld will face each other at RheinEnergieStadion for matchday 19 of the German Bundesliga. Their last match, back in September 2020, ended in a 1-0 victory to Arminia at home. However, the recent head to head record favors Koln, who won 2 of their last 3 encounters.
The hosts head into this match after a 3-0 defeat against Hoffenheim, putting an end to their two games in a row without losing in the league. Even though they will be playing, manager Markus Gisdol usually likes to favor the defensive organization and create counter attacks, we don’t believe this will change. Their most dangerous player is Ondrej Duda, who can cause trouble to the opponent’s defense.
Arminia Bielefeld suffered an even worse defeat in their last game, as they lost to Frankfurt at home by 5-1. That put an end to their three games in a row without losing. The visitors count with a lot of problems in the offensive system, mainly in finishing. Their two most advanced players are Sergio Cordova and Fabian Klos. Klos is their top scorer with just 3 goals.
We expect a very interesting match, with both sides dominating the match at different moments but with few opportunities of goal. The main reason is that the two of them have problems in the offensive sector. Koln have a goal average of 0.89, while Arminia’s is just 0.5.
Bet on: Under 2.5 Goals
Wolfsburg – Freiburg
At the Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg and Freiburg will face each other for matchday 19 of the Bundesliga. They shared points in their last confrontation, back in September 2020, after a 1-1 draw. The head to head record, though, favors the away side as they count with 2 victories in their last 4 matches against the Wolves.
The hosts head into this match motivated after a simple 1-0 victory playing away against Bayer Leverkusen, adding their second victory in a row. For this next match, as they will be playing at home, they will probably focus on having the ball and controlling the game. Keep an eye on Maximilian Arnold, who is responsible for creating the plays, and also on Wout Weghors, their top scorer with 12 goals.
Freiburg also have a little motivation for the match after beating Stuttgart by 2-1 and winning after two games without victories. It is true that the visitors show a lot of problems in finishing, even though they count with Nils Petersen as their most advanced player and top scorer with 7 goals so far.
We believe Wolfsburg have all the conditions to get the three points at home. They have a better squad and live a better moment. Freiburg come motivated after the victory against Stuttgart, but will face a very competent opponent, and with their problems in attack, the three points are going to be a difficult task.
Bet on: Wolfsburg to win.
