Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao

, KO: 17:30 Apr 27, 2024, Estadio Civitas Metropolitano
Athletic Bilbao

Atletico Madrid continue their push for a European finish as they host fellow contenders Athletic Bilbao in a La Liga fixture on Saturday.

Atletico will be counting on their fine home record and should have the upper hand over Bilbao, who are unconvincing on their travels.

Atletico Madrid are coming off a surprise 2-0 defeat to Alaves in their previous La Liga fixture. They had plenty of possession and created numerous chances but were wasteful in front of goal.

That result highlights Atletico Madrid’s erratic showing in recent weeks having picked up three wins and suffered as many defeats in their last six La Liga matches. They are currently fourth on the standings but need to be wary of Bilbao, who are just three points behind.

One thing that has remained solid for Atletico Madrid is their record at the Estadio Civitas Metropolitano, having lost once at home all season. Diego Simeone’s men have won eight of their last 10 La Liga home matches but have kept just one clean sheet in the last five in that run.

Athletic Bilbao head into Saturday’s clash having drawn 1-1 with Granada last time out in La Liga. They fell behind early in the contest through Inaki Williams’ unfortunate own goal, but Gorka Guruzeta struck the equaliser.

Although they failed to win, that result keeps Athletic Bilbao in the mix for a top-four finish, as they sit just three points behind Atletico Madrid. Ernesto Valverde’s men may have won the Copa Del Rey this season but their recent form has been unconvincing, having failed to win their last three matches.

Athletic Bilbao 9ften struggle on their travels and have picked up just one win from their last six La Liga away matches. They were beaten 2-0 by Real Madrid in their previous fixture on the road.
