Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Preview 


These two sides have the best defensive numbers in La Liga, Real Madrid allowing just 20, Athletic Bilbao 26 goals in 29 games. I expect to see a tight tussle at Santiago Bernabeu, so under 2.5 goals is the best bet.

Head to Head 


Real Madrid have a 42-13 advantage against Athletic Bilbao with 11 draws in 66 matches. 

They last met in August 2023, the game being won by Real Madrid 2-0 in Bilbao. 

Real Madrid Form 


Real Madrid were victorious in their most recent La Liga appearance just before the international break, beating Osasuna 4-2 in Pamplona, Vinicius Junior being the man of the match with two goals and one assist. 

That was the second consecutive league victory for Los Blancos, previously crushing Celta Vigo 4-0 at home and maintained their lead over 2nd placed Barcelona at eight points with nine rounds left. 

Carlo Ancelotti’s men struggled in their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 ties against RB Leipzig, but eventually advanced 2-1 on aggregate despite being outplayed at Santiago Bernabeu. 

Real Madrid Injuries & Team News 


Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, David Alaba and Eduardo Camavinga are injured. 

Vinicius Junior is suspended, while Jude Bellingham is once again available after serving a suspension. 

Athletic Bilbao Form 


Athletic Bilbao are having a great season so far in La Liga, claiming 56 points in 29 matches and sitting in high 4th place with one-point advantage over Atletico Madrid. 

After starting this month with a goalless draw against Barcelona, the Basque side claimed all three points on the road against Las Palmas, Gorka Guruzeta breaking the deadlock in the first half while Saul Coco scored an own goal in the 65th minute. 

They made it two in a row just before the international break, beating Alaves 2-0 at home where Gorka Guruzeta scored a brace. 

Athletic Bilbao are having an amazing run in Copa del Rey this season, reaching the grand finals after eliminating Eibar, Alaves, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. 

Athletic Bilbao Injuries & Team News 


Ander Herrera, Yuri Berchiche and Inigo Ruiz are injured. 

Aitor Paredes is back after serving a one-match suspension. 

Verdict

Both sides have rock-solid back lines, allowing low number of goals this season. Also, seven of the last eight head to head matches between these teams ended under 2.5 goals, so this is the best bet.
