Atletico Madrid Preview – Will Los Colchoneros move further away at the top with a win?

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have had a superb season in La Liga. Atleti lead the way at the top of the division, collecting an impressive 59 points from 25 league games. Overall, Madrid have won 18, drawn five and lost just two.

However, after winning eight on the trot from mid-December to late January, Atleti have won just two of their last six in La Liga, allowing Barcelona and Real Madrid to claw back some points. Last time out, Simeone’s men drew 1-1 with rivals Real in the Madrid derby. They were on their way to a precious three points, but Karim Benzema equalised two minutes from time.

Our betting prediction:
Atl Madrid to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1658 GMT, Tuesday 9 March)

After no home wins in four in all competitions, Atletico Madrid will want to get back on track with three points at the Metropolitano on Wednesday. The home victory is currently priced at 3/4.

Athletic Bilbao Preview – Can Bilbao cause an upset in the Spanish capital?

Marcelino Garcia Toral’s Athletic Bilbao have been a tough nut to crack lately. Los Leones have gone five games unbeaten in the league since a narrow defeat to Barca at the Camp Nou in January, winning two and drawing three.

Last weekend, Bilbao left it late to pick up all three points against Granada. Alex Berenguer’s effort in injury time helped Athletic Club to a priceless 2-1 home win. Marcelino’s men are in eighth place at present, taking 33 points from 25 matches. They have won nine, drawn six and lost ten so far.
