Athletic Bilbao is in a winning streak and will probably be tested by the table-toppers in the encounter.
Real Madrid has steered away from Barcelona in the race for the title by 4 points in the league table.
The home side is on a double win in the league and has only one loss from their recent five clashes.
Their previous encounter was on the road against Valencia and they returned home with a 0-2 win.
To their nightmare, Real Madrid is on a six-game winning streak in the campaign by winning all the clashes post lockdown.
Only two of those six matches saw both teams score in ninety minutes.
Bilbao has lost only three of their 16 home matches in the league so far this season.
The host is a strong contingent at home and has the use of home ground advantage in the game.
Displaying not only the best overall squad this season, but Los Blancos have arguably the best defense in the league with just 21 goals conceded from their 33 appearances.
We saw Real Madrid struggling in the first half against Getafe when the latter pressed tightly. It has been a problem for Zidane that his strikers are not finding the back of the net efficiently.
Zidane and his team are the best away side with just 3 losses on the road this season.
They are on a two-game winning streak in their away games, which will probably cause a headache for Gaizka Garitano.
Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Head-to-head (h2h)

- Their previous encounter resulted in a goalless draw.
- The host is winless at home for the past four clashes.
Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Prediction
Athletic Bilbao will need the points desperate for making it into the Europa qualifiers. They enjoy their ground advantage, but it is unlikely to see them penetrating Ramos and Co. at the back.
Since all that matters is the three points and the deciding goal, we can expect Los Blancos to stay strong at the back once again as they are on three clean sheets straight in the league.
The away win in full-time with 1.66 odds will be the best bet for the punters in the clash. Seeing that the visitors are strong at the back, it is probable that Zizou’s boys draw the first blood in the game.
