Diego Simeone’s men have a splendid record against this opponent and should have too much for them

Atletico Madrid trade tackles with Athletic Bilbao at the Wanda Metropolitano for their La Liga matchday 12 clash on Saturday evening.

The 10-time La Liga champions will be looking to improve their chances of winning the title by increasing their point tally at the summit of the table with a win in this encounter.

While records have shown that the Madrid-based outfit are clear favourites going into this encounter, opponents usually find things difficult at the Wanda Metropolitano.

For better perspective, Atletico Madrid have drawn just once at home out of their five league fixtures – winning the rest. And have won all their non-domestic fixtures on that ground including their recent win over in-form Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Therefore punters looking to smile to the bank this weekend can stake on the Los Colchoneros who have eight wins out of their previous ten meetings in the league against Athletic to come out on top once more on Saturday. And it’s offered at mouth-watering odds of (1.50) with Bet365.

Aside having a miserable record against their hosts, Eduardo Berizzo’s side are on a poor run of form which has seen the Bilbao-based outfit record just a win so far in this campaign – with the win coming in their very first game of the season in August - at home against Leganes.

They are clear underdogs with the same betting firm at odds of (8.50).

Only Valencia (eight) have more draws than Athletic Bilbao (seven) in the league at the moment. And Bet365 is offering odds of (3.80) should the away side hold the host to a draw in this clash.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
