Atlético VS Athletic Club


Preview
Atlético Madrid and Athletic Club face at Estadio La Peineta, in a match for the 12th round of the Primera División. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the home team, since they have a record of 6 wins and 2 draws in the last 8 matches. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 18‑02‑2018, and ended in a (2‑0) win by Atlético Madrid. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Athletic Club presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Atlético Madrid

The home team is currently in the 4th position of the league, with 20 points won, after 5 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Real Sociedad, by (2‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Leganés, by (1‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 20 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 8 conceded. They come to this match after a home win against Borussia Dortmund by (2‑0). For the league, Atlético Madrid won 13 points out of 15 possible points, after 4 wins and 1 draw in the last 5 home matches.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 5 home matches. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Atlético de Madrid has conquered ten Primera División (Spanish Championship) titles throughout its history, being the most recent title conquered in the 2013/14 season, in addition to having ten titles of the Copa del Rey and three second-places in the Champions League. The team is making a good campaign in the current season, having won twenty of the thirty-three points it played so far, being thus among the first placed, one point behind second and four behind the leader. Atlético de Madrid has presented a very strong performance in the home matches, since he has not lost at home this season and comes from five consecutive victories, counting several competitions. We believe that in this match, Atletico Madrid will conquer another good win by playing at home.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Oblak, Francisco Montero, S. Arias, D. Godín, Filipe Luis, Saúl, T. Partey, Rodri Hernández, A. Griezmann, Diego Costa, Á. Correa.
Coach: D. Simeone.

Analysis of Athletic Club

The away team is currently in the 17th position of the league, with 10 points won, after 1 win, 7 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Valencia, by (0‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Espanyol, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 17 goals scored and 21 conceded. In the last 5 away league matches Athletic Club has a record of 4 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 4 points out of 15 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 5 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Athletic Bilbao has already won the Primera Division (Spanish League) eight times, the most recent title being conquered in the 1983/84 season, in addition to twenty-three Copa del Rey titles and two second-places in the Europa League. The team is making an irregular campaign in the current season, having won only ten of the thirty-three points it has played so far, being among the last placed, just one point ahead of the first team in the relegation zone. Considering the away matches, Athletic Bilbao is making a bad campaign as it has not won a single game, adding mostly draws in the games it has played so far. We believe that in this match, by playing against a difficult opponent, Athletic Bilbao will suffer goals and be defeated.

Confirmed Lineup: Iago Herrerín, Unai Núñez, De Marcos, Íñigo Martínez, Balenziaga, Yuri, Susaeta, Beñat, San José, Iñaki Williams, Muniain.

Betting suggestion:

In this confrontation between Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao, we believe we will have a score built in favor of the home team, taking into account the technical quality of the squad led by Diego Simeone and the Athletic Bilbao's weakness in the away games. In addition, historically Atletico Madrid has a great advantage over Bilbao, since in the 25 matches played at Atlético Madrid's stadium, there were 17 home team's victories, 4 draws and 4 away team's victories.
