Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Real Madrid will be aiming to build on a 2-0 over their local rivals Atletico Madrid when they take on Athletic Club in yet another home fixture. Los Blancos are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek fixture. Real Madrid have been producing fine displays ever since Sergio Ramos recovered from his injury, and even though Eden Hazard remains in the recovery room, home win should be considered.
The Lions, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Valencia at Estadio de Mestalla at the weekend. The Basque outfit aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in La Liga, but given Real Madrid’s current form, we predict that Gaizka Garitano’s men are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in the Spanish top flight Real Madrid defeated Athletic Club thanks to Sergio Ramos’ goal.
