ATH vs RVL Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Athletic Bilbao vs Rayo Vallecano Laliga Live Score September 22


ATH vs RVL Dream11: Marcelino’s tenure at Athletic has been a generally positive one but their lack of goal scoring could be an issue. That won’t matter at the moment as they come into this match having earned a goalless draw away at reigning champions Atletico Madrid. They now come up against newly-promoted Rayo Vallecano who are enjoying a great start to life back in Spain’s top flight. Rayo hammered Getafe 3-0 at the weekend. They will go to San Mames knowing they will be capable of scoring so both teams to score looks a good bet for this one.

Kick-Off: 1:30 AM (IST)
Venue: San Mames, Bilbao

ATH vs RVL Dream11 Teams

GK: Soria
DEF: Lekue, Martinez, Capa, D. Garcia
MID: Zarraga, Morcillo, Ciss
FOR: I Williams, Falcao, R. Garcia

Likely Winner:

  • Athletic Club have enjoyed a solid start to the campaign, picking up nine points from their first five games and remaining unbeaten, despite facing Barcelona and Atletico Madrid during those opening games.
  • Last time out, Marcelino’s men drew 0-0 with Atletico Madrid, putting together a very organised defensive display to take a point home from the Wanda Metropolitano, but they will want to add to their two wins here against lesser opposition – on paper.
  • Rayo aren’t to be taken lightly having enjoyed a very bright start to the season, especially after being written off by many following their surprise promotion back to the top flight.
  • The Vallecas side are now unbeaten in three games, beating Granada and Getafe comfortably either side of a draw with Levante.
  • Confidence will be high heading into this one, especially for Falcao, who scored on his debut last time out, but away from home against an organised Athletic, they are more likely than not to be second best here.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a Athletic Bilbao win is 1.86.
