Neither side has been in particularly good form, yet this fixture tends to produce goals and we are backing another entertaining contest at San Mames

After suffering one of the most embarrassing Copa del Rey exits in their history on Wednesday night, an out-of-form Athletic Bilbao host Real Madrid on Saturday evening.

The Basques were knocked out the competition they have won 22 times by third tier minnows Formentera, a side from an island with a population of just over 10,000 people.

It was the latest setback for Athletic in what has been an extremely poor start to the season, with the Bilbao outfit winning just one of their last ten league matches.

Usually so strong in front of their own fans, Athletic have lost four of their last eight matches at San Mames in all competitions, and on Saturday they face a Madrid side that have won on each of their last two visits to Bilbao.

Los Blancos, however, are not in particularly impressive form either, and their 2-2 draw against lowly Fuenlabrada in the Copa Del Rey on Tuesday was yet another disappointing showing from Zinedine Zidane's men. 

Madrid have failed to win either of their last two away league games, drawing 0-0 at local rivals Atletico and losing 2-1 at Girona, and dabblebet offer them at 4/9 (1.44) to end that run this weekend.

Athletic, meanwhile, are priced at 6/1 (7.00) and the draw is offered at 7/2 (4.50). dabblebet customers can watch and bet on this fixture via desktop, mobile and tablet. Your account must be funded or active in order to see the action live

Both teams to score has been a regular winner in both sides' matches this season, paying out in six of Athletic's last nine league games and in four of Madrid's last five league games on the road.

A repeat is available at 4/6 (1.66) but those odds improve to 5/4 (2.20) if we back goals at both ends and a victory for either side, as Real Madrid's last three away wins in La Liga have come without keeping a clean sheet and this selection has paid out in each of the last four meetings between the two sides.
