Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Betting Tips: Form Guide

Athletic Bilbao Start Off As Expected

Due to the postponement of their third round match with Rayo Vallecano, we haven’t seen much of Athletic Bilbao this season. What we have seen though has left their fans cautiously optimistic, especially after a decent set of friendlies, including a recent 3-1 win over Valladolid.

As far as La Liga games go, they got off to a decent enough start with a 2-1 win over last year’s league table neighbours Leganés. But while the performance by Athletic Bilbao was fine, it didn’t exactly prove to anyone that this year is going to be something different. We can say the same for its follow up match – a 2-2 draw against the recently promoted Huesca. It was good enough, but that’s about it.

As it stands, Athletic Bilbao give the impression of a team who are struggling to find that next gear, even if their current speed is enough to keep their heads above water. This reflects most Athletic Bilbao match previews, who have them as underdogs. If ever there was a chance to shift the tide, this is it.

Real Madrid’s Quest For Glory Gets Off To A Good Start

While taking home the bronze placement in the La Liga is a huge achievement for most teams, with one as ambitious as Real Madrid, there’s a sense that it has just made them hungrier. However, with Barcelona absolutely dominating the 2017/18 La Liga and looking to do so again this year, they’ll need to do something pretty special to make their top spot hopes a reality.

So, how are they getting on? Pretty well, as it happens. After three games, they are currently undefeated in La Liga, with their only recent setback being a penalty loss to Atlético Madrid on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup final, and even that was a hard-fought battle.

They kicked off their season with a rock solid 2-0 win over Getafe, which must have felt like a sure thing as they also had a record low attendance that day. People may think the same about this contest, with many Atheltic Bilbao vs Real Madrid betting tips for today not even giving their opponents a chance. Their back-to-back 4-1 victories over both Girona and Leganes don’t provide much of a counter-argument to this view either.

Real Madrid hasn’t really been challenged yet this season, and Athletic Bilbao have one hell of a task on them if they plan on being the ones to topple them.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Preview: Recent Meetings

Considering the one-sidedness of many Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid betting tips, it is a surprise for many to learn that the last two contests between these teams ended in a draw. Athletic Bilbao were able to hold Real Madrid to a 1-1 and 0-0 stalemate. If you thought a Real Madrid win in this match was a done deal, then perhaps this will give you pause for thought.

Before this though, Real Madrid owns a handful of victories. They beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 and 4-2 in 2016 and 2-1 again towards the end of 2015. However, in March of that year, Athletic Bilbao got a 1-0 win of their own. And although before that Real Madrid clearly take the advantage, the fact that Athletic Bilbao have a win that recently and have managed to grind them to draws in their last two contests should give their fans hope.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Prediction: Real Madrid Victory

There’s good reason to believe that this match will be a lot closer than many are expecting. In the past, Athletic Bilbao have proven to Real Madrid that they are no pushovers, and we don’t see them going down here without a fight.

However, we would say that, based on past performances, a draw is more likely than them winning here. The fact is that Real Madrid have proven time and time again that they are one of the best teams in the world, and while Athletic Bilbao do impress on the pitch, they’ve just not shown themselves to be on that same level.

When you also consider that Real Madrid have beaten teams arguably better than Athletic Bilbao with ease already in this tournament, the reality of the situation does sink in. We don’t think it will be the cakewalk some envisage, but our Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrd prediction is that the away side win to remain undefeated so far in La Liga.
