Atletico Madrid is in 1st place in La Liga with 38 points after 15 games. The team of Diego Simeone is in amazing form in the league and won their last 4 matches. The series started at their stadium against Elche 3:1 and then they beat Real Sociedad 0:2. The third victory was again at home against Getafe 1:0 and their last clash was against Alaves 1:2 with Luis Suarez scoring the winning goal in the last minutes. The last team that beat them in La Liga was Real Madrid 2:0. However, their last match was in Copa del Rey against third division team Cornella and shockingly Atletico was eliminated after a 1:0 defeat.
Athletic Club is in 9th place in La Liga with 21 points after 18 matches. Their last game was on Wednesday when they played at home against Barcelona and lost 2:3. The Basque team won only one of their last 4 games in La Liga and it was against at home against Elche 1:0. The other results of the club were lost against Real Sociedad again at their stadium 0:1 and draw against Villarreal 1:1 this time as a guest. Believe it or not so far this season Athletic Club doesn’t win two straight matches in a row in La Liga and it is understandable why they are in this position in the standings.
Atletico Madrid is the favorite in the upcoming match. However, even if the team from Madrid win, I think that it will be very hard. Athletic apart from their last match against Barcelona finished their previous 3 games with less than 3 goals. I expect a low scoring match that can even finish without goals.
