ATL vs ATH Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Atletico Madrid will be aiming to stretch their unbeaten record to nine games in La Liga when they host Athletic Bilbao at Wanda Metropolitano, in Madrid, tomorrow on Saturday evening.
Diego Simeone’s men restored some pride after they defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the Champions League match on Wednesday. Though Atletico let Dortmund have most of the ball in that natch, considering the chances that the home team created, the 4-0 reverse scoreline was a possibility.
Indeed, the week started in a most perfect manner and the icing on the cake would be a win over Athletic Bilbao at the weekend. Three points will take the Los Rojiblancos to 2nd in the table and just 1 point adrift of leaders Barcelona.
For Athletic Bilbao, it’s a testing time being a fan and a player of this club. For some, things can’t get any worse as they are currently in the league. If the last season under manager Jose Angel Ziganda was almost a nightmare when they finished 16th in the league, 10 points from the first 11 games are hardly the signs of improvement under new manager Eduardo Berizzo.
Not since the 2-1 home win over Leganes had Bilbao tasted victory in a league match. That pathetic run has firmly put them in a relegation battle, and to be true, there are no signs that things can improve in the next few weeks.
Now comes this away fixture which has defeat written all over it for the Athletic as they haven’t beaten Deigo Simeone’s men since 2013.
