La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid and Basque side, Athletic Club face each other in a highly-anticipated league match at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday evening.
In the last 27 La Liga meetings between these two teams, Atletico Madrid have won 17 games, while Athletic Bilbao have won 7 games, with the other 3 games ending in a draw. The Basque club have won only 1 of their last 8 clashes with the capital club winning 5.
Atletico Madrid will be without Hector Herrera due to injury, while Stefan Savic will miss out due to suspension. Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, will be without Unai López Cabrera, Yeray Álvarez, and Peru Nolaskoain due to injury.
Diego Simeone’s men are in fine form, picking up wins week in week out, and have lost just 1 match in the league this season, conceding just 6 goals, but Athletic Club have lost 9 games in the La Liga, and sit 9th on the log. It is difficult to see anything but a win for Atletico Madrid.
