Athletic Bilbao will hope to make home advantage count when they host Valencia at San Mames for Wednesday night's huge La Liga encounter.

Jose Angel Ziganda’s men have claimed just two victories in their last nine competitive fixtures away from home and on their own patch, they have lost just two of their last 10 outings across all competitions.

The Basque outfit is priced by bet365 at (2.62) to claim all three points in this showdown.

Valencia enter this clash on the back of a three-match winning streak in La Liga and are a (2.80) shot with the same betting firm to triumph at San Mames.

For this tie to end all square, odds of (3.20) are available.

The hosts are unbeaten in seven home league fixtures, though five of these have resulted in stalemates. However, the visitors can pose a great challenge despite winning just once in their last five away outings.

Backing the home team to avoid defeat due to their defense solidity and home record is available at (1.44). Only four teams have, so far, shipped in fewer goals than them.

With at least three goals scored by both teams in five of their most current seven encounters, the bookies have tagged over 2.5 goals at a lucrative (2.00).

This could lie in both teams scoring which is offered at (1.70) with bet365, which has paid out in three of last four head-to-head ties between both sides.
