Atlético is reaching for the stars
When Atlético Madrid meets Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday the team of Diego Simeone has the chance to take over the lead of the Spanish table if Barcelona loses points again. On condition that Madrid is winning this upcoming match. Kick-off in Bilbao is on Wednesday at 8.45 p.m..
Current Performance of Athletic Bilbao
They have fought very hard but still have failed. That’s what describes the Europe League drop out last week of Bilbao the best. They were able to make up the score of 1:2 from the first match in the regular playtime but then failed at the penalty. Another bitter pill to swallow was that Bilbao not even has lost the match they also have lost their top player Aritz Aduriz due to an injury. The attack player had to leave the match early and might not be fit enough for the match against Madrid. Anyway, the team of Coach Ernesto Valverde can be very satisfied with their performance in this season. Not even that they have made it to the quarter finals of the Europe league also in the League they own a sovereign fifth position. They even have a small chance to get on to the fourth position and therefore get a grid for the qualification for the Champions League. In the past 8 league matches there have only been one defeat and one match that ended in a drawn the rest of the matches have been won. In front of the own audience they might have the power to keep up with the second of the position. We will see how this match will end.
Current Performance of Atlético Madrid
The chance to get the title is back. Because of the struggling performance of FC Barcelona Atletico is now very close to the Catalans. With the same points as the leader of the table they are on the second position at the moment. However the team from Madrid has the poorer goal results. Last week the Simeone eleven was able to win against Barcelona which has boosted their self-confidence a lot and at the championship they have scored a 3:0 result against Granada. All in all the “Rojiblancos“ are unbeaten since four league matches without a point loss. One person who is also responsible for these great results is the French player Antoine Griezmann who has scored 20 goals out of 33 matches. The team of Coach Diego Simeone was more successful at home than at away matches. The five defeats they had to suffer in this season four of them have been suffered away. One sign that speaks for the team of the capital city is that they have won the only duel in this time of play at the „El Madrigal“ with a score of 2:1. In addition one advantage is that they have probably more self-confidence due to the international success. That’s why the second of the table is the favourite in this match but Bilbao is always good for a surprise.
Betting Tip for this match
If Atlético wants to put Barcelona still under pressure they should win this match in the Basque region. It is also to say that Bilbao had proofed already in this season that they are able to keep up with any team. However we believe in a victory of the guest players. Our tip for this match: tip 2.
