Bilbao looking to protect unbeaten home run

Real Madrid need another win in this penultimate league fixture to keep the heat on leaders and cross city rivals Atletico, though they face a really tough 90 minutes against an Athletic Bilbao side who are unbeaten in their last nine at San Mames.

Bilbao’s overall nine game unbeaten sequence ended disappointingly at Huesca in midweek (1-0), but they’re always a stronger proposition on home turf and they’ll be really keen to spoil Los Blancos’ title challenge here by going ten matches undefeated on their own patch.

The hosts don’t have anything to play for and are booked for a mid-table finish, though their motivation hasn’t been lacking in recent weeks under new boss Marcelino.

It’s all about building for next term for Bilbao and they’ll also be buoyed by their 1-2 success over Madrid in this season’s Supercopa de Espana semis.

The visitors will be going all out for the victory in the latter stages if they’re unable to break the deadlock, but at the prices it’s worth chancing that Bilbao can hold firm – especially as Madrid have drawn three of their last six league outings.

And with a tight tussle anticipated and defences set to be on top, we’re also chancing a 0-0 stalemate in the correct score market.
