Atletico Madrid will host Athletic Bilbao at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano following a promising 2-0 triumph over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
Los Colchoneros’ tumultuous start of the season has been highlighted by various ups and downs, as the club from the capital failed to maintain consistency for the majority of the campaign. With a record of five wins, five draws, and one loss, Los Rojiblancos currently sit in the 4th place with a 4-point deficit to Barcelona. Although Atletico kept a clean sheet 6 times so far, 5 in front of the home crowd, which is more than any other team in La Liga, Diego Simeone’s players are having immense problems in the final third. With 13 goals scored in the opening 11 fixtures, Los Indios have one of the weakest goalscoring records in the Spanish top flight, having scored an average of 1.18 goals per match.
On the other hand, the Lions are 1-point away from the relegation zone, as they’ve so far only registered one league victory, having played out seven draws while suffering three defeats in the process. Moreover, the Basque side have failed to secure all three points since the opening matchday, while they stand as one of two teams that are yet to capture a triumph on the road. Additionally, Eduardo Berizzo’s players have failed to keep a clean sheet in all five away encounters, although they’ve only missed finding the back of the net once. The Rojiblancos score an average of 1 goal per match, while they allow 1.45, with 45% of their games produced a minimum of three goals.
