Athletic Bilbao – Atletico Madrid Preview

Athletic Bilbao faces Atletico Madrid at the San Mames Barria in a match from the 17th round of Spanish La Liga. Let’s see what we can tell you about it in these accurate football predictions. Here we go!

 

Athletic Bilbao are in a good shape at the moment. They are unbeaten in their last five matches and won three of them. This allowed Ernesto Valverde’s team to climb to 5th place in the standings. Now Athletic are just five points behind the 4th Barcelona and Top 4.

 

Last weekend the Basques made their 5th draw for the season. Athletic paid a visit to Granada where they made a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes. Inaki Williams opened the score for Athletic but Ruiz de Galarreta had the bad luck to score himself an own goal in the second half.

 

Inaki Williams is Athletic’ top scorer since the start of the season. He has 8 goals on his name so far. He’s having a good season.

 

Atletico Madrid are third in the La Liga standings with 34 points and a record of 11 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. Los Colchoneros are 7 points behind the leader Girona, but there’s enough time to catch up. Only if they continue winning on a regular basis, though!

 

Last weekend Atletico won for a 11th time this season. Diego Simeone’s team went head to head against Almeria and did enough for a 2-1 win. Alvaro Morata and Angel Correa scored for the winning team. Meanwhile Antoine Griezmann and Marcos Llorente provided the two assists.

 

Diego Simeone could be tempted to make changes against Athletic. Jose Gimenez could return in defense while Memphis Depay is an exciting option for the attack.

 

That’s the accurate football predictions for the upcoming La Liga game between Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid. Good luck!
