Athletic Bilbao have find the right rhythm in Ernesto Valverde’s second spell at San Mames Barria.

They are enjoying a wonderful spell of form with three wins and a draw in the previous four rounds.

The Basques could have easily snatched the fourth straight win last weekend when they were the better team on the pitch in the 1-1 stalemate away at Sevilla.

Their goals can come from various sources with four separate players sitting at three right now.

On the other side, Atletico Madrid are playing hot and cold this season but they are still near the very top of the standings.
