Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

  • Athletic Bilbao have only lost one of their last nine at San Mames
  • Atletico Madrid have beaten just two of the top half away from home this season
  • Bilbao are on a run of two defeats in eight league games

Can Bilbao cause an upset?

Athletic Bilbao are arguably the underdogs going into this game, but their recent form has been strong, winning four of their last eight in La Liga and losing just twice.

Marcelino García Toral’s side have been hard to predict this season, registering back-to-back wins on just three occasions, and they do come into this one having defeated Cadiz 3-2 last time out.

But they have been in strong form at San Mames, where the likes of Real Betis and Real Sociedad have left empty-handed during a run of five wins in eight.

Atletico eying second place

Their title defence has been a bit of a whimper, but Atletico Madrid are still very much in the mix for a top four place if they can find some consistency following an indifferent run of form.

Diego Simeone’s side have won just one of their last five, losing twice, including a 1-0 defeat against struggling Mallorca earlier this month.

They have, in truth, not been great on the road all season, with just two of their seven victories coming against teams in the top half of the table, while they have lost six times.

The visitors are also missing a number of key players through injury, with Thomas Lemar and Hector Herrera among those likely to miss out.

I think the hosts could sneak a surprise here, so Athletic Bilbao double chance is my initial selection, with a 2-1 victory my correct score prediction.
