  • Bilbao form: 27 matches – 9 wins – 10 draws – 8 losses – 37 points.
  • Madrid form: 27 matches – 11 wins – 12 draws – 4 losses – 45 points.

Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid Match preview

Bilbao contingents had three consecutive losses in their schedule recently, including a loss at home.

Later the host won the next two clashes, including a 1-4 win on the road against Valladolid in their prior clash.

Even though Atletico Madrid has lost none of their recent five matches, three draws within the same period will be a concern for Diego Simeone and his men.

They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home with Sevilla in their previous match.

With just three losses in 13 home matches, Bilbao looks equipped to welcome the guests. But two of those overall three losses have come within the recent three attempts.

This might hold back the host in utilizing their home ground advantage in the match.

Simeone also has concerns on his team since they are away from home. Having a mixed form on the road with 3 each loss and wins in the 13 appearances, it will not be a simple task for the visitors.

Atletico Madrid will rely on Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata in the match to take something out of the clash back home.

Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

The encounter doesn’t emphasize on the away win in full-time considering that 7 of the 13 away fixtures of Atletico Madrid have ended in a draw.

Since the home ground is the strongest suit for Athletic Bilbao, we cannot expect an easy giveaway from the host who is eight points behind the visitors in the league table.

The draw no bet over Simeone and team will be the safest bet with decent returns in the game. At 1.50 odds similar to the earlier bet, the tip for over 1.5 goals in total will be a suitable option for the punters.
