Real Madrid Preview – Madrid the favourites to reach the final

Real Madrid are the 8/13 favourites in the match outright for this fixture* (odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January).

They are carrying some great form at the moment and enter the Super Cup courtesy of their league title last season.

Real Madrid have a W7 D2 record in their last nine games in all competitions.

It has been three clean sheets from them in their last four games, conceding just the one goal in that sequence.

It’s worth noting that this game is being played on neutral territory so there’s no home advantage anywhere.

Eight of Real Madrid’s last ten games in all competition have ended with fewer than three goals in the match.

So under 2.5 goals is at 4/5 to crop up in the fixture* (odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January).

Five of the last seven meetings between Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao have gone under that goal line.

Our betting prediction:
Real Madrid 1-1 correct score

(odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January)


Real Madrid do have head to head from going over Athletic Bilbao.

They are undefeated in their last eleven fixtures across all competitions against Bilbao, but five of the last seven have been drawn.

But earlier this season, Real Madrid claimed a 3-1 league home win over Athletic Bilbao, helped out by Bilbao going down to ten men in the 13th minute.

Real Madrid are 11-time winners of the Spanish Super Cup, and they are the reigning champions as well.


Athletic Bilbao Preview – Can Bilbao overcome the big challenge?

A place in the final of the Copa del Rey has given Athletic Bilbao a shot at the Super Cup.

But there is a big hurdle in front of them and they are the 15/4 underdogs in the match outright* (odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January).

There has not been a tremendous amount of winning touch from them recently.

Athletic Bilbao have won only two of their last nine matches across all competitions.

Those were both home wins in the league.

Supporting a probability of a low scoring game, four of Athletic Bilbao’s last five games have gone under 2.5 goals.

But they have hit the back of the net in each of their last seven games and lost 2-3 against Barcelona in the league in their last fixture.

However, the Both Teams Not To Score option may be the way to go here at 4/5 as they will likely turn up in a defensive kind of mood* (odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January).

Athletic Bilbao have won the Super Cup twice before, most recently in 2015.

Athletic Bilbao have failed to score in three of their last four fixtures against Real Madrid.

So they may again just come up short.

A Real Madrid to win to nil betting option is at 7/4 for this Super Cup* (odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January).

Perhaps another way to look at this one will be the fact that Athletic Bilbao have lost four of their last nine fixtures.

It doesn’t make for good enough reading to suggest that they come away with a win.


Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Betting Advice

Can Athletic Bilbao come up with enough to stop Real Madrid in this semi final fixture?

We don’t think so and we are going to roll with the Real Madrid to win to nil option at 7/4* (odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January).

This will, after all, be a tense occasion with a place in the final of the Super Cup at stake.


Key Facts – Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Betting Tip

  • Real Madrid have taken three clean sheets in their last four against Athletic Bilbao
  • Real Madrid have won 7 of their last 9 games in all competitions
  • Athletic Bilbao lost 3-1 against Real Madrid earlier this season in league action


So it’s natural, as seen in the 90 minute draw between Barcelona and Real Sociedad in the first semi-final, to expect a fairly low key affair.

The under 2.5 goals option does look a favourable football betting pick at 4/5* (odds recorded 21:17 GMT Wednesday, 13th January).

We don’t expect a classic. We do expect Real Madrid to find a way to win.
