Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid

It has been a solid campaign for the home side, as they are about to finish in the top half of the table. Bilbao sits in 9th place, but they are far from challenging the Europa  Conference League spot. Marcelino Garcia Toral’s side failed to defeat after nine matches last Wednesday, as they lost to Huesca 1:0. The hosts have been pretty tight in the back, while Inaki Williams and the lads were decent in the final third. Athletic Bilbao has been unbeatable at Estadio San Mames in the last nine rounds, but they have been involved in many draw matches during that run. They have been excellent against favorites this season, as Bilbao lifted the Super Cup by beating Barcelona and their upcoming rivals. The hosts were better than Atletico Madrid and Sevilla in the previous few weeks, and they will eye another positive result.

Real Madrid heads to this game after a 4:1 victory away to Granada last Thursday, which kept them in the title race. They are still two points behind their local rivals and would like to keep the battle active in the final round as well. Zinedine Zidane’s side had the chance to climb to the top spot last weekend, but they picked up just a point against Sevilla at the home ground. Although Karim Benzema and the lads haven’t lost 16 games in a row in La Liga, the visitors spilled too many points in draw matches lately. Real Madrid is the second most efficient team in the league, while their defense has been pretty tough to crack. However, the away side will have selection trouble in the backline, as they cannot count on Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, and Ferland Mendy. The visitors need to find a way to overcome those problems and get back home with a crucial victory.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

It is going to be a close game, although Real Madrid is considered favorites by all bookmakers. Los Blancos won’t have an easy task, but we believe they will celebrate an important win and keep their chances of defending the title.

Goals Market Prediction

Real Madrid managed to keep the clean sheet only once in the previous five matches, and Bilbao will try to exploit their weaknesses in the back. Therefore, we think both teams should be able to find the back of the net in this encounter.

Real Madrid to win @ 1.55

BTTS Yes @ 1.80

Correct score 1:2 @ 8.00

The Basques are more than capable of not playing a very comfortable game for Real Madrid, which is under pressure, but the motivation is strong and they have the quality to win and stay steady in the title match.
