Ath Bilbao vs Real Madrid – Prediction, and Match Preview

Ath Bilbao vs Real Madrid – Athletic Bilbao comes into this match on the heels of a 1-1 La Liga draw with Real Madrid.

That match, Athletic Bilbao had 36% possession, 15 attempts, nine shots on goal, and one goal. The only Athletic Bilbao goal came from Oihan Sancet (49′). Nine shots on goal for Real Madrid, but just one were on target. Rey Almagro scored for Real Madrid in the 72nd minute.

Athletic Bilbao hasn’t kept a clean sheet in too many games. Athletic Bilbao has surrendered eleven goals in their last six games due to inability to stop opponents. Despite that, this game may maintain that pattern.

Considering their current form, Real Madrid has allowed goals in five of their previous six games, allowing opponents to score eight goals overall. Real Madrid should definitely do better on defense.
