Betting tips for Hertha Berlin vs Ath Bilbao - 14.09.2017
The Olympic Stadium in the German capital is the scene of the first match of Group J of the Europa League between the whole of Pal Dardai and Athletic Club of Bilbao. Hertha Berlin was able to maintain their place for this competition last season, despite having a bad end to the Bundesliga. The Hungarian Pal Dardai continues to lead a very solid team, which has made his stadium a fort and has started the national competition with 4 points in the first three games, which leaves them in 9th place.
The capital has a budget of more than 90 million euros, of which have invested 13.5 million in the contracting of the center forward of RB Leipzig, Davie Selke; the Australian right-hander Mathew Leckie, from Ingolstadt; and the Dutch central Karim Rekik, from Olympique de Marseille. In addition, free from the University of Berkeley the son of legendary Jürgen Klinsmann, who plays goalkeeper, and comes from Salzburg right-hander Valentino Lazaro.
After making their debut at home to Stuttgart (2-0), the team fell by the same marker in Dortmund the following day. Last Friday, again in the Olympiastadion, yielded a tie to 1 against the Werder Bremen. The Australian Mathew Leckie is the author of the three goals in the team's Bundesliga.
Europa League Athletic Club de Bilbao finished last season occupying the 7th position. The victory of FC Barcelona in the final of the Copa del Rey ended up getting into the Europa League this campaign, after having had an outstanding participation last year. The Basque team, one of the three Spanish clubs to have never lost the category (the other two are Real Madrid and FC Barcelona) has a budget of 171.7 million euros for this campaign. Ernesto Valverde's march to FC Barcelona prompted the promotion of Ziganda from the subsidiary team, with the change in the bench the main novelty, along with the return of several of the players who acted as ceded last season (Herrerín, Kike Sola, Iriondo, Ager Aketxe, Vesga ...).
Ranked to play one season plus the group stage of the Europa League after eliminating Romanian Dinamo Bucharest (4-1 overall) and Panathinaikos (4-2) in the previous two rounds, the Vizcaya gave up a goalless draw against Getafe in the debut of the season, taking the first victory in his visit to Ipurúa in the previous day (0-1). This weekend, the team won the newly promoted Girona 2-0.
It will be the first official match between both teams. The Germans are very solid at home, although they come from draw against Werder Bremen, while the Lions are worse as visitors, although they won in Ipurúa. Without knowing what rotations each coach will do, a priori I choose the two teams to score in this match.
