Athletic Club vs. Atletico Madrid Predictions

Atlético Madrid have responded from their wobble with two home wins over strugglers Eibar and Huesca with an aggregate score of 7-0, but we are likely to see a cagier game as they travel to an Athletic Club side that have drawn their last five games.

Bilbao have been treading water in mid-table all season and have lost all four matches so far against La Liga’s runaway front three.

They have only lost four home games all year but Atléti’s away form has generally been pretty good this season.

This match just matters so much more to the visitors and with a bit more confidence in front of goal they should be able to get the job done and stay three points clear of Real Madrid at the top of the table.
