Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao
Spain – La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 10 March 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
The 1-1 draw at home against Real Madrid in the last league clash has shown that Atletico Madrid failed to win in three consecutive home matches in La Liga.
The host’s momentum at the top of the table trembled already as they dropped points in recent matches in the campaign. Los Indios still has a three-point lead over the next to kin with a game in hand.
Unbeaten in their last five matches, Athletic Bilbao might prove a headache for Simeone’s men. The visitor’s last two losses came against Barcelona.
They will visit on the back of a 2-1 win at home against the likes of Granada in the last league clash. The away team has registered three draws in their last five fixtures in their schedule.
Expect a comeback from the home team in the middle. But do not take the Super Cup winners for granted as they need to keep their form intact ahead of the Copa del Ray final this season

Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
Suarez managed to get an early goal for Atletico Madrid in the last clash against Real Madrid. However, Simeone will be disappointed to lose two points after conceding in the second half.
Since they couldn’t keep their lead intact against an injury-struck Los Blancos in the Madrid derby, their form will be questioned in the league.
Los Indios have kept a decent record of 11 unbeaten games at home against Bilbao. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and will need a comeback after four winless games at home across all major competitions in the schedule.
Bilbao lifted the Super Cup and is close to the Copa del Ray this term. Their form in La Liga is still a mixed one losing points in draws as of late in their schedule. so, expect a couple of goals in the fixture with the home team holding a slight edge in ninety minutes.
