It will practically be a final this weekend in LaLiga when Atlético Madrid receives Athletic Club in a supremely important match towards the next Champions League. 

The Colchonero comes from being surprised and losing 2-0 as a visitor against Alavés, which counted with the conversions of Carlos Benavidez and Luis Rioja. 

The Basques drew again in LaLiga, this time 1-1 at home against Granada, one of the worst teams in the Spanish competition, and missed a great opportunity to cut distances.

Why Bet on Atlético Madrid?

Atlético Madrid has had a disappointing season, as it has not been competent in LaLiga, lost in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, and failed to win the Copa del Rey title. They have just lost 2-0 to Alavés away. Their executioners were Carlos Benavidez and Luis Rioja. 

Despite the defeat, Cholo Simeone’s team is fourth with 61 points, three points ahead of its rival. If they were to finish the season at this point, this club would go to the next Champions League. But the Colchonero is not a reliable team. They have lost three of their last six matches, winning the remaining ones. Their irregularity cost them the elimination in Europe against Borussia Dortmund. 

Some pieces have lowered the level for Atletico, starting with Frenchman Antoine Griezmann, who has only scored three goals and provided one assist in the last seven matches. For his part, Spanish striker Álvaro Morata has not scored in eight games, which explains the decline of this squad. 

The injured players are Memphis Depay, Tomas Lemar, and Vitolo, while Marcos Llorente and Morata should be available. 

Why Bet on Athletic Club?

Athletic Club has already achieved the great goal of the season since it won the Copa del Rey, breaking a drought of decades without being able to be champion of that competition. In LaLiga, they have just drawn 1-1 with Granada, the same result they obtained against Villarreal. The worrying thing for this team is that both matches were at home. If they had won, they would have been fourth and in the Champions League zone.

With these results, the Bilbao team dropped to fifth place with 58 points, three points behind their rivals. A win at the Cívitas would allow them to equal points and overtake the Colchonero, as they have a better goal difference. Ernesto Valverde’s team has had a clear paternity over Atlético. This season, they have played three matches and won all of them. They converted six goals and did not allow any. 

At the away level, Athletic is not living a great present because they only won one of the last five matches. They have scored 14 goals and allowed the same amount. 

A lot of attention should be paid to striker Gorka Guruzeta, who has 14 goals, four behind Ukrainian Artem Dovbyk, the tournament’s top scorer. 

No injuries or suspensions have been reported.

Final Betting Analysis: Atlético Madrid vs. Athletic Club

This season, they have already played three times, with three victories for Athletic Club, which has not even conceded goals. However, in Madrid in league matches, Atlético is 12 games unbeaten with 10 wins. The last time Bilbao won as visitors was in 2011 by 0-2. 

The numbers at Gambyl Exchange have Atlético Madrid as the favorite. Their Moneyline shows 2.014, Athletic Club has 3.965, and the draw is at 3.75. 

Athletic Club needs to win this match if they want to qualify for the next Champions League, but Atletico Madrid at home will not give up points and will be able to keep the fourth position. We believe it’ll be a battle on the pitch, where the locals will emerge victorious by 4-2.

Go for a win for Atlético Madrid. If you bet $100 at 2.014, you will gain $101 for a total payout of $201.
