Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Preview and Prediction 2021

Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao predictions for Wednesday’s La Liga clash at Wanda Metropolitano. The league leaders look well priced to see off Los Leones in midweek. Read on for our free La Liga predictions and betting tips.

Atletico Madrid have won nine of their 13 home matches this season (D3, L1).

The league leaders are unbeaten in their last ten home games against Bilbao and have won the last five encounters between the sides in the Spanish capital.

Bilbao have lost six of their 12 away trips in La Liga this season.

Leaders to get the job done at Wanda

Athletic Bilbao are unbeaten in five La Liga games (W2, D3) as they travel to the capital to face Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night, but Marcelino’s men are expected to come up short against the league leaders at Wanda Metropolitano.

Atleti survived a serious test here on Sunday as they drew 1-1 with title challengers and cross city rivals Real Madrid, though the result allowed a resurgent Barcelona to close the gap to just three points at the top.

This week’s clash against Bilbao counts as Atleti’s game in hand and Los Colchoneros should be fully focused on getting the job done to double their advantage at the head of affairs.

The visitors are in decent nick coming into this; however, they have lost six from 12 on the road this season and have been beaten in their last five away trips against Diego Simeone’s side.

Atleti haven’t been quite as assured in recent weeks but they appear to be over their wobble after beating Villarreal 0-2 and taking a point from their aforementioned derby encounter against Los Blancos.

Simeone’s stars have also won nine of their 13 starts at Wanda this term and have maintained seven clean sheets on their own turf, so we’re keen to support them here at a shade of odds-on with a 1-0 correct score also forecasted.
