The first matches of the playoffs of the Europa League went well for the Catalans, in which Xavi’s wards knocked out Napoli and Galatasaray from the tournament. In the quarterfinals of the second most important tournament on the continent, the Blue Garnet could not cope with Eintracht Frankfurt, losing the game at Camp Nou (3:2).
Both teams rarely indulge in an abundance of goals and performance, while fatigue affects. Moreover, today the Basques will try to play defence as carefully as possible because, with such an opponent, everything can be decided in one moment. In 4 of the last five matches of San Sebastian, there was no more than one goal.
So, in this game we will also expect the same defensive scenario. The Whites and Blues still have hopes for the place in top-4 and should play at their maximum attentiveness, leaving some chances for the overall success. So, our prediction is the total under 2.5 goals, which can be taken with a coefficient of 2.04. To win more with huge bonuses, higher odds, and without risks – visit our betting sites rankings page.
