However, 2 of their losses was against the top 2 in La Liga (Real Madrid and Sevilla), but they have failed to beat 2 other average strength teams, and now they face Real Madrid again.

Real Madrid has been Spain’s best club team this season and they are miles better than any other team this season. Their last match, they took the foot off the gas, but secured a goalless draw. 

Athletic Bilbao has been in a bad form, but their last match against Real Betis showed a team willing to change their bad form and return to winning ways. 

Below are our tips for this match:

Tip 1:  Real Madrid Win

Even though Real Madrdi drew their last match, they controlled much of it and had a big number of chances and shots on goal. Athletic Bilbao, even though their last match showed intent, there are still glaring concerns which will likely be exploited by Real Madrid.

Also, in their last 5 matches in all competitions, Real Madrid has won 4 and lost one. We don’t don’t the Athletic Bilbao defense holding the Real Madrid attack in this match.

Tip 2:  Real Madrid to Score

Yes, we know that Real Madrid did not score in their last game, but it is a one-time thing and it happens. Athletic Bilbao has been letting in goals as their defense are in disarray now. Also, in the last 5 games between Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao, Real Madrid has scored in all 5 games.

Real Madrid has been in excellent form this season, and they don’t look like succumbing to any La Liga team yet. Carlo Ancelotti has setup the team excellently well to approach each game with a winning mindset. 

While Athletic Bilbao is capable of causing problems for Real Madrid, but we don’t have confidence that they would steal a win here.
