Athletic Bilbao welcomes Atletico Madrid in a match of the 5th round of the Spanish La Liga.
Athletic Bilbao: The home team is holding the 7th position in the league. They have got 7 points from 2 wins, 1 draw and a loss. Bilbao suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of Las Palmas in a very even game. Seems like, they were unfortunate to lose. However, they have made a promising start to the season with their defensive line most pleasing for a new manager.
Atl. Madrid: The away team is holding the 6th position in La Liga. They managed to win 8 points after 2 wins and 2 draws. Atletico Madrid has also made a steady start to the season, and they beat Malaga comfortable last weekend to get their second win. Also, similar to their opponent, they have been defending well. Most of all they don’t let their opponents many chances.
Conclusion: Although Athletic Bilbao looks solid they haven’t played any games against the serious teams this season yet. However, each of the last 4 matches that Ath Bilbao have played had 2 or fewer goals. On the other side, Atl. Madrid will be looking to keep their unbeaten run of 8 matches. Finally, this should be a tight match featuring two cautious teams.
