We continue to discuss the Spanish championship and now I would like to talk about the match between Athletic and Real Madrid.
Real Madrid continue to dominate the Spanish Championship. However, quite recently the team made a small mistake in the match with Cadiz, which ended in a goalless draw. Moreover, the Madrid team completely possessed the initiative and delivered 36 shots that were never crowned with success, so you shouldn’t attach much importance to this misfire, just a little unlucky, but the fact that Real Madrid have been having a hard time with goals lately is a fact. The coronavirus epidemic is not only taking place in England, so Real have a number of players who will miss the match for this reason, but overall, the creamy have enough rotation players not to pay much attention to such losses.
Athletic is in the middle of the standings and is unlikely to claim a place in European competition, especially with so many draws. The team finished exactly half of their matches with the same numbers on the scoreboard, and in general the club scores and concedes very little. Of course, there are exceptions in the form of matches with Betis and Granada, but these are mostly grassroots matches.
Real Madrid have lost only one game this season, but they will face a tough test of strength in this meeting. I don’t think Athletic will be able to impose their game or catch Real off guard with goals scored, but it will be very difficult for the creamy to score. My prediction for this meeting is that Real Madrid will not lose and the final total is less than 2.5. Good luck!
