The Alaves vs. Athletic Bilbao match will be played on Monday, December 17, at the Mendizorroza Stadium, Vitoria. Alaves is currently 6th on the table with 24 points, while Athletic Bilbao is currently 18th with only 14 points at the moment.
These teams played only seven matches against each other in the last 13 years. Alaves recorded three victories, Athletic Bilbao had only one win, while three matches ended in a draw. In five out of those seven matches we saw under 2.5 goals.
Alaves had a great start of the season, but in the last three weeks their form went sideways. They won only one out of their last five La Liga games, and they recorded three defeats during that period. In the first ten matches in La Liga, Alaves had only two losses. They are still in the place that leads to Europa League at the end of the season, but if they continue with bad results, Alaves might find themselves in the battle against relegation.

Athletic Bilbao is currently in the relegation zone, which isn't the place they know well. Bilbao was never relegated from La Liga, and they are the members of Spanish elite competition since the beginning. In the last match, Bilbao defeated Girona and perhaps that is the sign of better days for them.
