We now have to discuss one of the other Austrian teams in the Europa League groups, Rapid Vienna, which is sadly in the same situation as Salzburg – with no chance to qualify from group F, due to being 4 points behind league leaders Genk and Athletic. Thankfully, Bilbao does have something to play for – they could finish first or second in the group, which does bring a difference in seeding for spring’s Knockout Round.

Both Teams To Score:  Yes 1.70 or 7/10  No 2.05 or 21/20

Group F has been full of spectacular games, both teams scoring and receiving quite a few goals. Rapid Vienna has a 6-7 goal difference, but what’s more worrying is that they are in a bad form currently – only 1 win in their last 7 games across all competitions, which game in the weekend at home. Since they don’t have any objective in the Europa League, they will surely feature a weakened team, because they absolutely must do better in their domestic league.
This is something Bilbao can take advantage of, for a good number of reasons. The team will be more motivated, since they will want to finish top of the group, and they’ve also beaten the Austrians 1-0 in their previous encounter. Their form is much better, with only 1 defeat in the last 8 games, but their away form isn’t really the best. We expect them to send out some reserves as well, but these players should do enough to bring a good result for the Spanish team.

Rapid Vienna vs Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips

Thus, we believe that Athletico will score – our first betting idea of the day. We also believe that they should not lose this game, so X2 is another natural choice. At least 2 goals in the game is a clear idea, while a solo away win shouldn’t be discarded – since the home team won’t really put up a fight. It will be awkward to play with reserves in front of their home crowd in Vienna, but Bilbao should avoid defeat here.
Athletic Bilbao Win @  2.25 or 5/4
Athletic Bilbao Win & Under 3.5 Goals @  2.60 or 8/5
