Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano
Date: 26th October 2019
Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT
This game sees two sides with the joint best defencive records in La Liga this season going head-to-head. Both teams have conceded just 5 times in 9 league games so far and they have both struggled at the other end of the pitch.
Just like Atleti, Bilbao has netted just 8 goals this season and they have also both drawn 4 league games ahead of this match. This game should be a tough one between identical teams and it may end in another low-scoring affair.
The home side head into this game slightly better off but their 1-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen in midweek just shows how hard they make life for themselves at the moment.
Atletico Madrid also come into this game in the midst of a longstanding unbeaten run and also have a good head-to-head record in this fixture.
The visitors have been struggling to get the points and come here without a win in their four away games this season. Overall, they have lost two and drawn two of their last four games and they may end on the wrong end of the scoreline here too.
Atleti have kept a clean sheet in 10 of their last 15 home games while the visitors have netted just two times on their travels this season which makes this an interesting chess match on paper.
