Athletic Club VS Real Madrid


Atletico de Bilbao and Real Madrid face off at San Mames on this match of the 26th round of the La Liga.

Bilbao comes into this match riding two consecutive wins. Worth mentioning though that they lost their last home match against Torino 2-3. They are currently the 10th placed team with 30 points.

Real Madrid drew their last match, against Villareal 1-1. Still they had 3 wins before that. Worth noticing that their last 4 matches ended under 2,5 goals. They are currently the leaders of the rankings 2 points ahead of the second place.

The head to head history favours Real Madrid. To find the last Bilbao win we have to go all the way back to 2010.

Analysis of Athletic Club

The main attack instigator of Bilbao is Muniain, a striker with excellent ball carrying abilities.

As such, it is expected that the support for the offensive target-man Aduriz will be coming from Susaeta and Muniain. Guillermo might also be an option for the front line.

The back lines have been solid despite the rotativity applied by the coach, despite that they sometimes still show some insecurities that could be decisive.

Atletico Bilbao usually has good ball possession on its matches, this possession though is done mainly on the back of the team due to the low creativity of the men up front.

Confirmed Lineup: Iraizoz, Andoni Iraola, Etxeita, De Marcos, Balenziaga, Mikel Rico, Gurpegi, Beñat, Williams, Muniain, Aduriz.
Coach: Ernesto Valverde.

Analysis of Real Madrid

Real will have several notable absences this match. James, Modric, Sergio Ramos and Coentrao will not be able to play due to injury.

The “merengue” front line is to be feared. With Cristiano, Bale and Benzema up top, goals are never too far behind.

Isco will be the obvious choice to substitute the injured Modric. Joining him will be Kroos and Lucas Silva with the Spaniard contributing with great quality to the team’s offensive football.

It is expected that Real will present an offensive quality far superior to its opponent. This will be irrelevant if their back line does not maintain their levels of concentration high though.

Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, Pepe, Marcelo, Carvajal, R. Varane, T. Kroos, Isco, Illarramendi, Cristiano Ronaldo, K. Benzema, G. Bale.
Coach: Rafael Benítez.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be the appearance of goals. Seeing as both teams value attack over defence, we expect several goal opportunities.
