Atletico Madrid had a perfect start of the week, after the triumph against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. ‘Los Rojiblancos’ have now won five-straight games at home across all competitions. Atletico currently stand on the fourth place in La Liga just four points behind league leaders Barcelona.

On the contrary, Athletic Bilbao would wish to forget the past two months. Away from home, Athletic Bilbao drew four games and lost one. Eduardo Berizzo’s side have conceded in every league game this season bar one.

Typically one of the league’s strongest home sides, Atletico are undefeated at the Wanda Metropolitano since the start of the season. Diego Simeone’s side kept a clean sheet in 14 of their last 15 home competitive games. Basque heavyweights Bilbao have been struggling lately and are winless in the previous ten La Liga games. I expect more of the same and will back Atletico Madrid to Win to Nil, with Atletico Madrid 2:0 Correct Score.
