Odds: 2/5 @ Bet365
Spain’s top league returns for yet another massive round of games as La Liga continues to provide some incredibly exciting action. The European and relegation spots are hotly contested this year meaning that a win can quite often see a side rise up a number of places. With this in mind, Atletico Madrid host Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
Atletico Madrid have been in very good form this season and they remain the only side in the league with a real chance of catching Barcelona at the top. After 23 games they have won 15, drawn seven and lost just once, while they have scored 34 goals and conceded nine times. In their last five they have managed to win four games and draw just once which has seen them onto 52 points for the season so far. Atleti are currently seven points behind Barcelona at the top and they must continue to win their games if they are to keep up the pressure on the league leaders.
Athletic Bilbao have been in fairly good form this season and they are looking to continue their rise up the table. After 23 games they have won six, drawn 10 and lost seven, scoring 24 goals and conceding 25 times. In their last five they have not won a single game, losing once and drawing four times, which has seen them onto 28 points. Bilbao will be aware that a continuation of their form will likely see the relegation zone creep ever closer, with their fate in La Liga resting on whether or not they can rekindle their form.
