Athletic Bilbao is having a mixed season with mixed results as they sit 8th position and 13 points off the top, having played more games.  In their last 5 league games, they have drawn 4 and lost won, which shows that things are not going badly but still not great for them either.

Real Madrid Form and Team News

Real Madrid continued with their fine form over the weekend win over Sevilla, which took them to 4 wins out of 5 with no games lost. The Carlo Ancelotti team has been in blistering form by scoring almost effortlessly this season in all competitions, though they have been porous at the back too. 

On the team news,  Bale G (Calf Injury) and Ceballos D (Ankle Injury) are still out due to injuries, and Eden hazard might miss out on this game due to match fitness. 

Carlo Ancelotti would be looking to run away with the league very early as their fiercest rival Barcelona has started picking up some points, and dropping points at this time might be costly. 

Athletic Bilbao Form and Team News

Athletic Bilbao are still not having things go their way in La Liga this season, and they face a might and in-form Real Madrid, who are hungry for winning and scoring goals. However, they are not a pushover in Europe and might sneak out a win or a draw in this fixture.  

They have won 4, drawn 8, and lost 2 games in the 14 La Liga matches played, and although 2 draws were against Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad, they’re still not having a great season.

Our Tipsters Angle

Real Madrid vs. Athletic Bilbao is always an exciting and sometimes a season-defining match in La Liga. In their last 5 games in all competitions, Real Madrid has won 3, lost 1, and drawn 1 against Athletic Bilbao.  

However, Real Madrid is in fine form while Athletic Bilbao can seem to find how to win. They almost won their last match, but a red card caused them to settle for a draw. Below, we present our tips for this match. 

Tip 1: Under 3.5 Goals  

There have been under 3.5 goals in 90% of Real Madrid’s last 5 games. Real Madrid is in fine form, but this match looks like a midfield battle. Also, there have been under 3.5 goals in all the last 5 games of Athletic Bilbao in all competitions, which indicates that this match will be a low-scoring game. 

It is also worth noting that there have been under 3.5 goals in 90% of their meetings in their previous encounters.  We think this match won’t have more than 3 goals in it and At the Casumo Sportsbook, Under 3.5 goals is available at odds of 1.41.

Tip 2: Real Madrid to Win

Currently, we see no team halting Real Madrid’s winning run at La Liga, and a straight victory should be easy for Real Madrid. Athletic Bilbao has been having defensive issues, and the red card he picked up in their last match leaves the coach to select a less desired first-team choice, giving Real Madrid an advantage.  

Also, in their last 5 meetings, Real Madrid has won 3 times, and we are backing them to make it 4 this week. Real Madrid to win is available for this match at Casumo sportsbook at 1.42 odds, and we think it is a good value for this match. 


Real Madrid would be looking to add one extra unbeaten streak to their already exciting run of results. This match won’t be easy for Real Madrid, though, and that is also why we are going for under 3.5 match goals, which should be the maximum number of goals scored. 

This match would be an interesting one, and we hope that you’d enjoy it.
