Athletic - Real Madrid: The Moment of Truth

La Laliga

Odds: 1.78

Real Madrid

Athletic continues to fight confidently for LE, reducing the backlog of teams from the European competition zone. After a disastrous performance in February, the Basques had a shock following 8 matches in La Liga. They did not manage to score points in this period only at Camp Nou, however, the team of Garitano looked great on the Barcelona field. The Catalans with great difficulty pushed the ball into the goal of Bilbao.


Athletic has been playing in the Primera since its inception and has never left the tournament. During this time, Bilbao won the championship eight times, but this season will bring nothing for him. Hosts have the title of cup team, they got it after they won the Cup of the country 24 times.

After 33 rounds, the “red-white” asset had 12 wins and draws, with one of the most reliable defense lines, which conceded 28 goals. The Lions have 48 points, which is only two less than the Real Sociedad from the Europa League group.

After a long quarantine, the Basques issued an excellent series in which they drew twice and won three victories over Betis (1: 0), Mallorca (3: 1) and Valencia (2: 0).

The main sniper of the team today is Garcia, on whose account are 13 goals scored.

Only one player will not be able to take part in today's game. Benat, who injured his hip, will not enter the field.

Real Madrid

Last season's bronze medalist ranks first in the UEFA ranking. The team is the most expensive in the world, whose value is estimated at more than four billion. Like today's rival, Real Madrid has never left the tournament, with 33 times becoming the winner of La Liga.

In the 2019/20 season, “creamy” followed in the footsteps of the main competitor for a long time, but already in the summer session they were able to squeeze the Catalans, thereby opening the path to victory for themselves.

The galacticos has 22 wins and eight world victories, while the second best performance indicator in the Primera is 61 goals scored. The main goalscorer of the team are Karim Benzema (17 goals) and Ramos (nine goals scored).

The last match, before the quarantine, the “whites” lost, but after the resumption of the season they issued a series of six victories in a row. It is worth noting that the defense of the Madrid club played exemplary, which did not concede a single goal in 4 of 6 winning matches.

Last Sunday, the wards of Zinedine Zidane beat Espanyol (1: 0) and on Thursday minimally outplayed the fellow countrymen from Getafe (1: 0).

Varan, Nacho and Rainier will not be able to take part in today's match.


In this game, “Real” has the opportunity to decide the outcome of the championship, but even a defeat will not be able to throw the “galaxy” from the top of the table. Athletic has more tournament motivation, but less chance of success.

We assume that tired teams will have a quiet match that will solve their tournament problems. We expect an attack from the Basque, but still give preference to Madrid.

Our forecast is the victory of Real Madrid and put it on the line of BC 1xBet with a coefficient of 1.78

Our prediction - Total under 2,5
