Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao
Valencia started their season in a better way compared to the previous seasons with their new Italian manager, Gattuso, who is clearly trying his best to implement his discipline and tactical knowledge. With a mix of experienced and young players, Valencia currently stands in 13th position in La Liga as they also beat Sporting Gijon in the round of 16 in the Copa Del Rey to face Bilbao in the Quarterfinals.

On the other hand, Athletic Bilbao, at the start of the La Liga season was on a great and positive run as they also had the chance to stand at the 3rd position for more couple of rounds. Despite their big loss with a score of 0-2 against Real Madrid at San Mames last Sunday, they performed amazingly and missed many big chances as we are eager to watch them beat Valencia or take the ticket to qualify and face potential rivals, Barcelona, in the semi-finals of Copa Del Rey.
Considering the statistics of both teams and La Liga, in 18 games played, Valencia has averaged an average of 5.89 corners per game while Athletic Bilbao has an average of 4.11 as we expect total corners of at least 8 in the game.
