Athletic vs Atletico Prediction 20 September 2017

Tournament: Spanish Primera Division
Location: San Mames Stadium
Match date: 20.09.2017 at 19:00

On Wednesday, 20 September 2017 19:00 in Bilbao at the San Mames Stadium the regular fifth game of the Spanish Primera Division will be played between Athletic and Atletico Madrid.

Athletic are known to be strong middle-peasants of the Spanish Primera and yet they made a serious mistake in the latest match. Nobody actually expected the Basks to lose this time. Of course, the game was an away one and it’s always difficult to play in such games and yet Las Palmas were their competitors. They are obviously not the team to lose points with. Anyway, the victories Athletic got in the matches against Girona and Eibar and a draw in the match against Getafe let them stay on the 5th place on the standings.

As for Atletico, they don’t seem to be in their best conditions at the beginning of the current championship. Unlike their competitors, Atletico haven’t lost a single game yet and still their draws in the matches against Girona 2:2 and Valencia 0:0 may cost a lot in the end. Anyway, the victory against Malaga 1:0 in the latest match let Atletico take a place among the leaders of the league and now they are on the 5th place in the table.

Atletico won most of the matches played between the teams. Last time they met was on May 21 and it finished with the victory of the team from Madrid 3:1. Athletic aren’t in their best conditions now and they haven’t played any games against the serious competitors in the current season. So, the upcoming match is going to be something like an exam for them. We don’t really think that the Basks will manage to pass this exam.
