RB vs ATH Dream11 Match Prediction: Athletic Bilbao will be hopeful of carrying on their winning momentum as they take a trip to Benito Villamarin to face Real Betis. Bilbao has secured maximum points against Levante, Eibar, Osasuna, and Granada lately.
Giaizka Garitano’s side currently occupies the 5th spot in the league with 26 points and is on level terms with 4th place Real Sociedad. Meanwhile, Real Betis is also on the back of back-to-wins against Valencia and Mallorca. However, Betis finds itself 13th in the league with 19 points and would want to make use of the home advantage against a quality Atheltic Bilbao unit.
Date- Sunday, December 8 | Kick-Off- 6:30 PM (IST) | Venue- Benito Villamarin
Aissa Mandi will be missing out due to suspension for the hosts. Meanwhile, Sidnei is on the sidelines due to an injury. Edgar could possibly be brought in at the back three for Betis. Andreas Guardado, Emerson, and Nabil Fekir will be wary of the fact that they’re one booking away from getting suspended. William Carvalho, Juanmi are also ruled out as a result of injuries.
Raul Garcia is undergoing suspension which should make way for Kenan Kodro to lead the attack. Oihan Sancet is likely to accommodate the midfield in the absence of Munian who’s out as a result of an injury. Ander Capa and Inaki Williams should be in charge of the flanks, while Oscar de Marcos is doubtfull to start due to an ankle issue.
Real Betis- Robles; Bartra, Feddal, Gonzalez; Moreno, Canales, Guardado, Emerson; Fekir, Moron, Joaquin
Athletic Bilbao- Simon; Capa, Martinez, Alvarez, Yuri; Lopez, Garcia; Williams, Sancet, Cordoba; Kodro
