Las Palmas v Athletic Bilbao Betting: Strikers set to dominate an open game

Two attacking teams meet on the island of Gran Canaria and our Spanish tipster believes with plenty of firepower on show there's value in backing a high-scoring game

After a brilliant start to the season that saw them briefly top the table, Las Palmas have struggled for form in recent weeks, winning just one of their last eight league games. The side from Gran Canaria, however, are yet to taste defeat at home this season and indeed are undefeated in their own stadium since March.

The visitors to the Canary Islands on Monday night are an Athletic Bilbao side who have not won away from home in La Liga since September 21, yet the Basques will be boosted by their qualification to the knockout stages of the Europa League, which was achieved on Thursday evening with a 3-2 win over Sassuolo.

This should be an entertaining game between two attacking sides, and bet365 will as ever be streaming it live for UK-based customers. There is no need to place a bet on the specific game in order to watch the action, a funded and active account is all that's needed to tune into what could be a particularly entertaining game.

The hosts are offered at 6/4 (2.50) to record their fourth win of the season while the Basques can be backed at 9/5 (2.80) and the draw is priced at 12/5 (3.40) .

Las Palmas have earned plenty of plaudits this season for their attacking and attractive way of playing and at the Estadio Gran Canaria we have seen some exciting, high scoring matches. After opening the campaign with a 5-1 demolition of Granada, Quique Setien's side have played out a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid and as well as a 3-3 stalemate with Celta Vigo.

Only matches involving Real Madrid and Barcelona have seen more strikes than Las Palmas' games in the Primera Division this season, and the Islanders can generally be relied upon to produce goals.

Athletic, for their part, have the firepower to cause plenty of sides problems and the Basques have scored in 11 of their last 13 matches in all competitions.

Both teams to score is offered at 3/4 (1.75) but more appealing is the price of 19/20 (1.95) for over 2.5 goals. With Las Palmas' top flight games so far this term averaging 3.47 goals per encounter, backing another high-scoring clash should be a tempting option for punters.
