Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao (By: PlayMaker)
Real Madrid return to Bernabeu to host Bilbao in this match day of La Liga:
- Under the 2nd session of Zidane, Real Madrid presented two different faces in La Liga, they won at home and lost points on the road. After losing against Valencia, they continued to cause disappointment for their fans after a blurring draw in Leganes. Zidane admited that his guys lost all motivation in the rest of the season and that was the problem.
- Bilbao started this season very bad, there are some moment they are in relegation zone in 1st leg, but the whole team are revealing and now they approach the Europa League spot with only 3 points behind Valencia. They are the 3rd best team if only counting last 9 rounds in La Liga. After being defeated by Getafe in 30th round, the team reacted quickly with a win 3-2 over Rayo Vallecano. With 6 matches remaining, everything can be happened and this game against a vulnerable Real Madrid will be a good chance for Bilbao to do something special.
- Real Madrid kept clean sheet in only once in last 12 competition games. And 9 of them finish with BTTS . Their weak defensive performance come from the lack of experience of the young defender as Reguilon and Odriozola Alvaro, when the key player as Marcelo and Carvajal just come back from injury and degrade significantly their form.
Considering the situation of both team, I see this will be another open game from both side. Playing in home stadium may boost a little bit moral of Real Madrid, when Bilbao is having full of motivation to get point here.
