Athletic Bilbao vs. Real Madrid predictions for Saturday’s Spanish La Liga clash at San Mamés Barria, Bilbao. Real Madrid travels to Bilbao looking to snatch the three points and build on their lead at the top of La Liga table.
Athletic Bilbao vs. Real Madrid Betting Tips
After a loss at Valencia (2-1) in late February, Real Madrid have returned to better form connecting 4 wins and 1 draw in their last 5 away from home matches and travel to Athletic Bilbao for their Spanish La Liga Matchday 28 clash hoping to extend their streak, which we will back @ 4/6 with Bet365.
Real Madrid haven’t been as convincing against Real Betis (2-1) last week but with confidence taken from it, they top the La Liga table with 2 points ahead of Barcelona and 1 match in hand. We expect to see Real Madrid just as confident and believe they can turn the likely narrow contest their way.
Athletic Bilbao have bagged 33 of their 44-points total with 10 wins and 3 draws at San Mames Barria, losing just 1 match there this season, only Real Madrid have better home records than them.
Real Madrid will surely be one of the biggest challenges yet and it will be a difficult task holding the in-form visitors off this time around. Both teams to score - Yes shapes to be the best way to approach the clash (odds @ 8/13 with Bet365), though, as we’ve seen Athletic Bilbao in great shape and Real Madrid both score and concede in each of their last 10 away from home matches.
