ESP: Atletico vs Bilbao




In the first leg of La Liga this season, Atletico Madrid were held 1-1 by Athletic Bilbao at home. With the advantage of being more appreciated, Colchoneros  is eager to beat this opponent. Before an Athletic Bilbao is deeply in turmoil, the opportunity for Atletico Madrid to do this is huge.

Despite being held to a 2-2 draw by Villarreal in La Liga at the weekend, it is undeniable that in recent times under the guidance of coach Diego Simeone, the Wanda Metropolitano home team’s play has been improved. markedly improved, especially the defence. Goalkeeper Oblak has only been shaken in 1 of the last 3 matches.

In La Liga, the last 2 rounds Atletico Madrid did not lose and won 1 match, in which the Colchoneros champion was defeated in the presence of the team considered the Dark Horse this season, Rayo Vallecano. Although they have climbed to 4th place, the distance between them and the chasing group is only the difference, a very strong gap. Therefore, with the advantage of form, the goal of the Wanda Metropolitano home team in this match must be a victory.

On the other side of the front line, Athletic Bilbao is a team that is not difficult to beat in the Spanish league at this time. Los Leones’ unhappiness is clearly shown by not winning the last 10/12 rounds and 4 of them were failures. Notably, the Basque team had 3/4 of this defeat when coach Marcelino Toral’s army was played at home. With only 12 out of 27 maximum points, the San Mames Stadium team has dropped to 9th place in the current standings.

Despite being an experienced coach, Marcelino Toral still has not found a way out for his team. Having to sympathize with the Spanish strategist when the man in his hand is only that, Athletic Bilbao is also not overrated in La Liga this season. The last 2 encounters with Atletico Madrid, Los Leones did not win and perhaps this time is no exception.
