  • ATH vs RM Dream11

    ATH vs RM Dream11: The home team come into this on the back of a 1-0 win away at Rayo Vallecano a couple of weeks ago in La Liga. That ended a positive January for Marcelino’s Athletic after they reached the Supercopa final in Saudi Arabia, losing to Real Madrid, and defeating Barcelona in the Round of 16 of the Copa del Rey after extra-time. They now come up against La Liga’s league leaders Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti’s Los Blancos have been controlling and steady throughout this campaign. They were perhaps fortunate to defeat their Basque opponents in the league at the end of November. Both teams scoring, given Athletic’s home advantage, would be a good choice for this one.
