Real Madrid – Athletic Bilbao
Just three days after beating Atletico in the big derby of the capital Real Madrid will face Athletic Bilbao at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. This is a fixture from the 19th round of La Liga. Here are our football prediction betting tips today.
It seems that Madrid are starting to get better lately and that’s great news for the club and the under pressure manager Zinedine Zidane. Los Blancos won their last three matches in all competitions – against Sevilla and Atletico in La Liga and against Borussia M’gladbach in the Champions League.
The game between the two Madrid giants ended with a 2-0 win for the hosts. Casemiro opened the score against Atletico Madrid while Jan Oblak scored himself an own goal after the halftime break. For a third consecutive game Real Madrid didn’t concede a goal, so Zidane will be happy with the way his team defends. This win against Atleti allowed Real Madrid to climb to third place in the standings and move closer to the top.
Athletic Bilbao are not really enjoying their best season in La Liga so far. The Basques are currently 12th in the standings with 14 points won and surely they would like to improve this.
On Saturday Athletic made a draw for second time this season. Gaizka Garitano’s boys had a difficult trip to Valencia where they made a 2-2 draw against Los Che. The Basques actually had an advantage until the 83th minute thanks to the goals of Asier Villalibre and Raul Garcia. They were unable to hold on their advantage, though.
These are our football prediction betting tips today for the La Liga match between Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. Could it be a third consecutive win for Los Blancos in the Spanish league? It seems that Zidane’s team is getting better lately. We shall see.
