Expect it to be an interesting one, as both teams will be gunning for maximum points, anything less would be a disappointment.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 10
Kick-off:
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)

The home side have entered a period of abysmal form, and it has started to show effect on their position on the standings. Commencing the season with some impressive displays and good results to back them up, it is pretty shocking to see them languishing in 5th place on the standings.

Their recent form have been the major catalyst in this sharp decline, with Atleti failing to win any of their previous four league games. Though The Red and Whites remain unbeaten in their last five, four of them have ended in drab draws.

Diego Simeone and his charges will need to put sweat and blood on the pitch come Saturday night to secure maximum points and return to winning ways.

Atletico Madrid v Athletic Bilbao Team News

Despite their well-documented struggles in the league, The Red and Whites managed to finally get a win under their bet, albeit in a Champions League encounter against Bayer Leverkusen, courtesy of a narrow 1-0 victory. Meanwhile, their foes for the upcoming tie, had to settle for the same score-line in favour of 17th place Celta Vigo last time out in the league.

Perhaps, this team hasn’t gotten over the shock of losing one of their best players in Antoine Griezmann to one of their greatest rivals, Barcelona over the summer. They are currently on a four-game winless run and the pressure is starting to build on Diego Simeone.

For all their struggles in the league this season, it is worth noting that they have lost just a single game, and that to a resilient Real Socieded side back in September. The game ended in a very comfortable 2-0 win for the home side.

Impressively, the hosts have turned the Wanda Metropolitano into something of a fortress this year, losing just a single game on this ground all year. That loss came against cross-town rivals Real Madrid back in February and they can have no qualms about the defeat considering the stature of the opponent in question.

Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, are no run-overs, sitting comfortably in 8th place on the La Liga standings, just three points adrift of their opponents in 5th. They could still play spoilsport to another heavyweight, after defeating defending champions Barcelona in their opening game of the season. They should not be ruled out of this one.

However, they have experienced a major dip in form in recent weeks, managing just two wins from their previous eight fixtures. Much more concerning, they are winless in their last four matches on away soil. They also were winless in nine of their past eleven trips too.

When it comes to head-to-head encounters, as you would expect, Diego Simeone’s charges have the upper hand. They will be looking to take advantage of this as well as the fact that they will be playing on home turf.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Atletico Madrid: Sime Vrsaljko, Stefan Savic, João Félix.

Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions

Given the sturdy Los Colchoneros defense, in conjunction with their misfiring frontline, we are unlikely to see many goals at the Wanda Metropolitano come Saturday night.

However, with home advantage on their side, count on Atletico Madrid to get the nod in the one, perhaps courtesy of a narrow lone goal win.
