Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao

Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao

With 61 points after 32 rounds, Real Madrid is in third place in the standings, 4 points behind the Atletico Madrid team, and far from the top 4 Sevilla to 9 points. While La Liga has only 6 rounds this season, it is clear that Real's championship dream has ended. The goal of the White Vultures is now to compete in second place with Atletico.
Real are quite impressive with 4 wins and 1 draw in the last 6 appearances. At home, they have also won three consecutive arrivals in Spain's highest tournament. Obviously, home ground is a fulcrum for Real. Particularly for Athletic Bilbao, throughout the history of the competition between the two teams, they rarely won on the Bernabeu.

However, Real also faced some difficulties in the battle tonight. It is coach Zinedine Zidane who will not have the services of Thibaut Courtois and Sergio Ramos due to injury. Obviously, the absence of Ramos will make the vultures of the White Vulture more fragile. And this will be a loophole for Athletic Bilbao to take advantage of scoring goals.

Across the pitch, Bilbao are in seventh place with 46 points, less than Valencia in the sixth place, 3 points away. Therefore, the visitors are looking forward to more than one win to get into the group with the opportunity to attend the European Cup next season. Athletic Bilbao's performance is quite good with 4 wins, 1 draw and only 1 loss in the last 6 appearances. However, away from home, their performance is quite unstable with 3 losses, 2 wins and 1 draw in each of the last 6 marches.
