The Yellow Submarine missed to win three points from the weakest team in the league,that help them to drop at 6th place with only one points advantage from 7th Sevilla.
At home the form is not better as alternating victory and loss lately, in last five games they recorded three wins against Real Sociedad with 4:2 ,Getafe win 1:0 and 2:1 against Atletico Madrid in last game ,the two losses was against Alaves with 1:2 and Girona 0:2.
The Basque club are also far from good form ,in last game at home they didn’t win against Celta and game end as a draw.Away from home they do not know what victory is already in six games, losing the last four in a row.

The last 6 meetings overall have produced 3 wins for Athletic and only 1 for Villarreal. However Villarreal have won all of their last 3 home games against Athletic in La Liga.
Meanwhile Villareal are still in battle for Europe League spots ,in last game they lose from last in the standing Malaga ,but at home they win against Atletico Madrid and that for sure is impressive performance.Their home record is 57% wins at home and we can bet on them here too.
