Athletic Club – Atletico Madrid: Preview & Prediction
Spanish shock this Wednesday in La Liga! Athletic Bilbao, 7th of last year and used to European jousts in the Europa League, receives Atletico Madrid, 3rd last season and quasi permanent member of the last quarter of Champions League. If the bookmakers give a logical favorite status to the Colchoneros, the Basques have always shown a solid solidity on their lawn (2 small defeats in 2016-2017) and the victory will be far from gained for Diego Simeone and his troops . All the outcomes are possible, even if it is difficult to score for the locals due to the defensive rigor of Atlético!
Less than 2.5 goals have been scored in Atlético Madrid’s last 3 games, and Jan Oblak’s cage has remained unscathed during this period.
None of the last 6 games played by Bilbao generated more than 2.5 goals, with the Basque club scoring only one goal!
Small delay in lighting Colchoneros side: none at the promoted Girona, 0-0 in Valencia, 0-0 in Rome … Bilbao being a valuable opponent, the party promises to be tight at San Mamès!
The defensive quality of the men of Diego Simeone is no longer to be demonstrated, and the Basques risk having all the trouble in the world to find the way of the nets.
