Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Preview

Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 10th November 2018

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Atletico Madrid will be looking to cap off a great week with yet another win and head into the International break on a very bright note with a win in this game.

They beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the Champions League in midweek and they now look to get another one against this unimpressive Bilbao side.

Atleti have some patchy form in the league however they are just 4 points away from Barcelona at the moment and the way they curtailed the free scoring Borussia Dortmund in midweek should have filled them with confidence that they can get a home win here.

Things are worse off for the visitors at the moment.

They finished 16th in the league last season and their fans expected things to only get better under a new manager this season, but it has been anything but better.

Bilbao won their first match of the season, but they head into this game winless since that opening day win and their fans will be hoping things improve sooner rather than later.

To make matters worse for the Basque side, they have lost 8 of their last 10 games against Atletico and they haven’t beaten the hosts since their last match at the old San Mames in 2013.

Atletico have 10 wins from their last 12 games against Bilbao.

Bookmakers have price Atletico up as strong odds-on favourites while goal markets suggest this game will see less than 3 goals as under 2.5 goals is trading odds-on.
