The Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid match will be played on Saturday, March 18, at the San Mames Barria stadium, Bilbao. Athletic Bilbao is currently 7th on the table with 44 points, while Real Madrid is 1st on the table with 62 points at the moment.


  • After suffering a shock elimination from Europa League, Athletic Bilbao recorded 3 victories in their last 4 matches in Primera Division. In the last 2 games, they haven't conceded a goal.
  • Real Madrid is undefeated in 5 straight games in all competitions. They scored at least 2 goals in each of those games.


In their previous 10 meetings, Real Madrid recorded 8 victories, Athletic Bilbao beat them once, while one match ended in a draw. Real Madrid is in a series of 3 victories against Athletic Bilbao and in 8 out of those 10 games we saw over 2.5 goals.


Athletic Bilbao won a derby match against Real Sociedad last weekend and returned to race for the place that leads to Europa League. They are now trailing by only 4 points behind Villareal and Real Sociedad, and they are hopeful to finish the season in the top 6. That won't be easy - after the match against Real, they will probably have to defeat Villareal in an away game.

After an incredible comeback against PSG in Champions League, Barcelona suffered a defeat in La Coruna. Real Madrid is now two points ahead, and they also have a game in hand. With 11 rounds until the end of the season, Real Madrid becomes the absolute favorite to win the title. They have only 2 fierce clashes, against Barcelona and Sevilla, both on Santiago Bernabeu.
