Atletico Madrid to Win

Los Colchoneros have found their form again with two straight wins and they are ready to fight for the title. And while playing in Bilbao is always a difficult task for any team, the momentum and quality are on the side of Atletico. Since Bilbao won’t have a huge motive to fight for the win, we expect Atletico Madrid to win this match and keep the top spot after this round.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

This prediction is hardly surprising for bettors since we all know how Atletico Madrid plays. The Madrid team has gone under 2.5 total goals in six of their last eight La Liga games, which is expected. However, Athletic Bilbao has also gone under 2.5 total goals in six of their last eight games in the league. Furthermore, three of the last five h2h duels between these teams have gone under 2.5 total goals, so that seems like a reasonable bet.

Both Teams to Score – No

With Atletico Madrid keeping a clean sheet in 59% of their matches, it’s clear why this bet is one of our favourites. Furthermore, both teams have scored in Atletico Madrid games only 35% of the time, which is the third-lowest record in the league. Meanwhile, both teams have scored in 47% of Athletic Bilbao matches, which also isn’t that high.

Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid preview: Can Atletico Madrid stay at the top?

The team from Madrid needs points to remain at the top of La Liga, while Athletic Bilbao is safely tucked in the middle of the table. If you want to know more about the current state of affairs with the two teams, check our detailed preview of the match:

Athletic Bilbao

The team from Basque country is sitting right at the middle of the table and their final standings are pretty much determined, give or take a spot or two. The team is on a streak of five draws, which is an unusual feat not seen so often. In the meantime, Bilbao has also lost two Copa del Rey finals (for 2020 and 2021), and that is certainly still affecting the players. Nolaskoain, Zarraga, and Munain are injured and unlikely to take the field in the Atletico Madrid match.

Atletico Madrid

After a few games in which they’ve dropped points and allowed other teams to come closer to them and mount a serious challenge for the title, Atletico has won the last two games to keep fight off some of the pressure. In the last eight games, Atletico Madrid has four wins, three draws, and a loss. Joao Felix should be back on the team after dealing with an injury, but Suarez, Gimenez, and Lemar are under question for the upcoming game.
