Real Madrid - Athletic Bilbao: prediction "1 & over 2.5"

Carlo Ancelotti has brought back this look of Real Madrid that the fans of the club want to see. The team is at a level that leads to great results for the team in La Liga and the Champions League. Over the weekend, the Whites turned Sevilla to 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu and kept their lead of four points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid.

This was the fourth consecutive victory for the team in La Liga and the tenth in the championship. If we add the matches of the Champions League, the "Royal Club" did not win only once in eight games in a draw with Osasuna at home. By contrast, Real is the top team in La Liga with 34 goals scored. However, their protection is the weakest in the Top 4 and the dry nets are not very much.

This can be recorded today against one of the weakest attacks in the championship. Athletic Bilbao, which is difficult to win, arrives in Madrid, having lost only to Cadiz and Rayo Vallecano so far. In the last round, the Lions again did not win and recorded an eighth draw for the first fourteen rounds. It came with a score of 2: 2 with Granada at home, and this was the most successful match for the Basque club so far.

Apart from against Osasuna, Real Madrid also failed to sign against Villarreal in a new zero draw. In the Spanish capital, however, the Whites are doing far better in defense, with only five goals conceded. Athletic Bilbao's away games averaged exactly 1.0 goals per game. The team is unbeaten outside, but also beat only Celta, keeping one of its four dry nets on foreign soil.

This is one of the most insidious opponents for the grandees in Spain. Usually Real Madrid wins, but this often comes after an unconvincing game and barely a goal difference. So far, Athletic has shown great defensive skills and it is possible that we will witness a third zero draw at the Bernabeu this season. However, Real Madrid is on a different level in the current campaign and shows character in such difficult to win matches.
