Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid PredictionAthletic Bilbao have not been enjoying the best of campaigns, sitting tenth on the standings having garnered 37 points from 27 games.

Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 28
Venue: Estadio San Mamés (Bilbao)
Expected to put forth a worthwhile top-six charge, Athletic Club have since fallen off the pace and are now within mid-table obscurity. Inconsistency have been their undoing with Garitano’s charges struggling to string up positive results on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid seem to be struggling to get on with their lives following the departure of star forward Antoine Griezmann. With Diego Simeone’s team already built around the Frenchman, failure to find a worthy replacement has left Los Colchoneros on a slippery slope.

Still hoping to break into the highly-coveted top-four mix, Diego Simeone’s men will be going all out for the win here. Although with tough customers Athletic Bilbao standing in their way this Sunday, the visitors will be required to put their best foot forward to ensure all three points are bagged.

Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid Team News

Though began the season in disappointing fashion, Athletic Bilbao have since turned the corner, racking up some important wins in recent games to climb further up the standings. With the La Liga back in full flight, San Memes will be looking to pick up from where they left off in March with another win in the bag.

Prior to the break, they were in action against relegation-contenders Real Valladolid and were deemed slight favorites for the win. Heading into the fixture in high-spirits, Bilbao dispatched their 15th-placed opposition comfortably. With a 4-1 win posted on the board, Garitano’s men headed home with all three points.

Pushing for a top-four finish, Atletico Madrid were in dire need of points when they played host to Sevilla on the last match-day. In a fiercely-contested affair at the Metropolitano Stadium, the visiting contingent managed to snatch a point from their claws of their desperate foes.
Los Colchoneros will feel hard done-by with the final scores, given they were the better side throughout the game. However, failure to keep Sevilla’s attack at bay cost them a lot, with Ocampos punishing them with an equalizer, just on the stroke of half-time.

We are likely in for a frantic game between these two sides at the San Mames Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Both sides are desperate for points and will be going all out for the win here. However, Atletico Madrid head into the game as the favorites.

They are unbeaten in their last five games on the bounce, with three draws to their name in that time. They have not been entirely convincing on the road this season, managing three wins and defeats over their previous 13 away clashes. Los Colchoneros have been churning out draws regularly this season.

The home side are also sporting a stupendous league record with just three home defeats all season. Worryingly, two of these three defeats had been registered over their past three league games.
