Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Preview

Atletico Madrid have been very tough to score against and they’ve conceded just one goal in seven outings as they extended their unbeaten streak across competitions, now hosting Athletic Bilbao for their Matchday 10 clash on Saturday evening looking to build on such performances and keep up with pace-setters Barcelona at the top of the table.

Atleti have beaten Bayer Leverkusen (1-0) with a single goal from Alvaro Morata on Tuesday and built on their top 2 spot in Group D, now sitting four points clear of 3rd placed Lokomotiv Moscow. They have seen Real Valladolid (0-0) and Valencia (1-1) both snatch La Liga points beforehand though, which will make all three points a must now.

Athletic Bilbao will be no easy side to break down, that’s for sure, but they’ve seen an underwhelming run of their own lately. They’ve bagged two points in four games, as they were held off by rock-bottomed Leganes (1-1) and Real Valladolid (1-1) more recently while seeing narrow losses to Valencia (0-1) and Celta (1-0) along the way.

Los Leones have conceded no more than a single goal in a match this term and this also points towards a narrow occasion in the making. However, they don’t have head-to-head records against Atletico to boast and this could be worrying ahead of their trip to Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday too.

We will thus back Atletico Madrid to turn a narrow contest their way and we’ll go for a Home win at 7/10 with William Hill. We’ve seen the very solid at the back and we feel they will have what it takes to secure the points now.

However, Bilbao should give them a good run for their money and we hope to see just one goal make the difference, as we now also go for Under 1.5 Goals FT at 6/4 with bet365. We’ve seen more than that just three times in both of the sides’ respective last seven outings, which certainly feels like further evidence for such a bet.
