Primera La Liga – Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Betting Preview

Real Madrid bounced back from their humiliating 4-0 loss against Atletico to win their next two games. The first was a 2-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna and then they managed to overcome Elche by the same scoreline. Their last game they come unstuck again drawing against the in form team, Villarreal 1-1 in what was a game of few chances. Real Madrid currently are top of the table however, if they do not win then they will give Barcelona the chance to go top of the table.

Real Madrid will be confident after they won the reverse fixture this season by five goals to nil however, Bilbao will take some believe from the 1-1 draw when Real Madrid visited here last year. The other confidence booster for Bilbao is that in their last two games played they have kept clean sheets in both of them. They beat Rayo Vallecano 1-0 and then went on to beat Eibar by the same scoreline.

Taking into consideration both sets of stats above, it would seem to suggest that we should see a minimum of at least two goals scored in this game on Saturday evening and the total goals 2 or 3 betting market looking of particular interest.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Current Betting Odds Market

Athletic Bilbao are currently the big underdogs in this game which is no real surprise when we look at both sets of players and the quality they have. Athletic Bilbao have not beat their opponents once in their last five games played. The best price is 13/2 with PaddyPower – £50 Free Bets for New Customers.

The Draw is currently best odds of 4/1 with LadBrokes – £25 Free Bets for New Customers, which does look quite good value as there has been one draws in the last five meetings between the two clubs.

Real Madrid are the clear favourites to win this game and are currently best odds of 1/2 with BetVictor – £25 Free Bets for New Customers, and with the way they hammered Bilbao 5-0 in the reverse fixture back in September last year, I can certainly see plenty of people jumping on to take these odds.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

Athletic Bilbao are currently sat in tenth place in the Primera La Liga table and are currently on the climb after winning their last two games played by scorelines of 1-0 and 2-0 respectively. A win here could take them up two places into eighth place in the table given the fact that other results go their way. If Athletic Bilbao are going to win this game they will need to be the first team on that score sheet and will need to defend very well and have the best game they have had so far this season.

Real Madrid are the massive favourites for this encounter and given all the statistics we have seen above in the preview it is not a surprise at all. Real Madrid have too much quality for Bilbao all over the pitch and if Ronaldo has his shooting boots on then Real Madrid will win this game with ease. I expect that very man to score the first goal of the game.

My predictions for this game are going to be Ronaldo to score two or more goals in the match as in the reverse fixture he scored a hat trick. My saver is going to be Real Madrid to win by four goals to nil.
