After delivering a full house of winners on Tuesday, SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Real Sociedad's showdown with Athletic Bilbao in La Liga on Wednesday
Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao (Wednesday, 20:00)
In a rematch of last week's Copa del Rey final, Basque rivals Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao lock horns in La Liga on Wednesday night.
Imanol Alguacil’s men lifted the trophy thanks to 1-0 win and they will look to repeat the trick when Athletic Bilbao come calling this midweek.
The Royals have won just one of their last four league matches, but they remain firmly in the mix for a European berth despite their recent slump.
Athletic Bilbao, meanwhile, have undergone a marked improvement since Marcelino took charge, however, they have won just one of their last six La Liga matches.
As such, I'm going to swerve the match result market and instead head to Bet 365‘s Bet Builder feature.
If we combine over zero Athletic Bilbao cards alongside over three Athletic Bilbao corners we can get some 5/6 (Bet 365) and that makes appeal.
Athletic Bilbao are averaging 2.36 bookings per game this season and it's worth noting that they have clocked up at least one card in each of their last 17 outings across all competitions.
With that in mind, coupled with the fact that referee Jose Maria Sanchez Martinez is averaging a whopping 5.67 cards per game this term, I'll happily back the visitors to collect at least one card on Wednesday night.
I'll complete the Bet Builder by backing Athletic Bilbao to hit over three corners during this dust-up – Marcelino's men are averaging 5.54 flag kicks per game this season and they have hit four or more corners in six of their last seven La Liga outings.
In fact, only Barcelona and Real Madrid average more corners per 90 minutes than Athletic Bilbao this season.
What's more, the above-mentioned Bet Builder would have banked profit in last week's cup clash and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula at the Anoeta Stadium on Wednesday.
- Over 0 Athletic Bilbao Cards & Over 3 Athletic Bilbao Corners – Bet Builder – 5/6 (Bet 365)
