Real Madrid are back in action with another match in La Liga this weekend as they lock horns with Ernesto Valverde’s impressive Athletic Bilbao side in an important clash at the Estadio San Mames on Sunday. Real Madrid are currently in second place in the La Liga standings and have not been at their best in recent weeks.
Los Blancos edged Villarreal to an important 3-2 victory in the Copa del Rey in their previous game and will look to take it up a notch this weekend. Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and have been fairly impressive this season. The Basque outfit edged Espanyol to a 1-0 victory this week and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Real Madrid have flattered to deceive in recent weeks and are in desperate need of a shot in the arm. Los Blancos pulled off an impressive comeback against Villarreal this week and will be intent on proving their mettle in this fixture.
Athletic Bilbao can pack a punch on their day but have a poor home record against Los Blancos. Real Madrid are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this game.
Prediction: Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid
This match will start from 1:30 am
This match will take place on 23 January 2023
Athletic will be without the services of Yeray Alvarez due to the red card that the centre-back received in the clash with Real Sociedad last weekend.
Inigo Martinez remains a major doubt through injury, meanwhile, so Aitor Paredes could feature in the middle of the defence for the Basque side.
There will be at least a couple of changes from the side that started against Espanyol in the Copa del Rey last time out, with Inaki Williams and Unai Simon set to return to the side.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, will again be missing Lucas Vazquez due to a long-term ankle problem.
Simon; De Marcos, Paredes, Vivian, Yuri; D Garcia, Vesga; I Williams, Sancet, N Williams; Guruzeta
Courtois; Nacho, Militao, Rudiger, Mendy; Modric, Camavinga, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius
Carlo Ancelotti’s men are favourites to claim the win and their last three league visits to Bilbao have seen them win by a one-goal margin.
