Athletic Bilbao welcomes Atletico Madrid in a match from the 28th round of the Spanish La Liga
Athletic Bilbao are currently 12th in La Liga’s standings with 34 points won. In a certain moment of the season, the Basques were pretty close to the relegation zone, having some serious problems. With time they managed to improve their performance and get away from the danger zone. Right now they have a record of 7 wins, 13 draws and 7 defeats. In their last five games Athletic won twice, made two draws and lost once.
In their last game the Basques shared the points with Espanyol for a 1-1 draw at home. Facundo Ferreyra opened the score for Espanyol, but Raul Garcia equalised for Athletic just 10 minutes before the end.
Atletico Madrid had an unpleasant experience during the week, when they were crushed by Juventus in the Champions League 1/8-finals. Diego Simeone’s team blew a 2-0 advantage from the first game, losing with 0-3 at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. The big hero of the night was Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a hattrick in Jan Oblak’s net.
Now Atletico have only La Liga to play for. Right now Los Colchoneros are 2nd in the league with 56 points, being on 7 points behind the leader Barcelona. They still have chances to win the title, but only if they show a really good consistency until the end of the season.
These are our vip soccer bets for the La Liga fixture between Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid on Saturday night. We expect a very competitive clash between these two teams at the San Mames Barria. We wish you good luck.
