Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao

Post by Sportipster on Tue Feb 16, 2016 4:03 pm

Spanish giants Real Madrid take on Athletic Bilbao at the Santiago Bernabeu this Saturday and this is a must win game for the hosts.

They trail league leaders Barcelona by 4 points having played an extra match and dropping any more points here would be tantamount to letting any chances of securing the title go. They let it late until the 86th minute last weekend to score the winner against strugglers Granada. While the first couple of matches under Zidane seemed a stroll in the park, Real Madrid have found it harder in recent weeks to win matches with the ease they are known for.

Sergio RamosHaving a leaky defense doesn’t help matters any and it was another error by Sergio Ramos that had Granada equalize in the last match. They are on 50 points, 4 behind Barcelona and 1 behind their derby rivals Atletico Madrid. They must win this game to keep up the pressure on their rivals.

Bilbao are 6th on the table with 35 points and are 10 points behind the UCL spots. Though there is 15 matches left in the season, it is too big a gap to close down unless Villarreal and Sevilla, the teams above them, slip up drastically. Though it is hard to find a decent rate for staking a bet when the big teams like Barcelona and Madrid play, we have to look elsewhere for value. In 3 of their last 5 home games, Madrid have conceded while Bilbao have scored in 3 of their last away games. While for all probability, Madrid will win the match, it is of great value backing both teams to score on account of Madrid’s leaky defense. Considering the rates are pretty generous for this, backing both the nets to be rattled is the bet for this weekend.

Best Bet – BTTS at 4/6
