Athletic Bilbao Vs  Atletico Madrid: Prediction

Looking at the growing form of Atletico Madrid, and considering their aim of winning the league, the current form of top rivals. It will be a difficult task for Bilbao to claim 3 point from them at San Mames Barria on Wednesday.

However, a lot is at stake for Bilbao also a Champions League qualification spot or negative effect of dropping to the 6 position below Celta Vigo who is just a point behind them.

It will be an intriguing clash, so I will settle for both sides sharing points or a possible Atletico Madrid Win.
