Los Rojiblancos are expected to fire on all cylinders as their hosts' back line has been vulnerable lately

Athletic Bilbao tackles Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu for Sunday afternoon's La Liga clash.

Zinedine Zidane’s men are looking to finish this season on a strong note as a very disappointing campaign winds down with no hopes of winning any piece of silverware. They have won four of their last six games and three successive home games after losing four straight games against Girona, Barcelona (twice) and Ajax Amsterdam in front of their own fans. Los Blancos shared the spoils in their last meeting with the Basque-based outfit on this ground having won the 13 previous home fixtures against Sunday's opponent. The same outfit are backed to return to winning ways at odds of (1.50) with Bet365.

Gaizka Garitano’s men are one of the most in-form teams in the league having won four of their last five outings. They were undefeated in seven of their previous 10 competitive matches (W5 D2) on the road. Los Leones will hope to raise their game in order to snatch a victory over their rivals after seven fruitless attempts. They are priced at (6.50) to grab all three points at the end of regulation time.

The last three outings between both teams have ended in draws. A similar outcome is offered at (4.33) with the same bet firm.

The 33-time La Liga champions have failed to keep a clean sheet in 22 of their last 26 competitive games. On the other hand, Los Leones have conceded more goals (37) than they have scored (36) in the league this season. Moreover, six of their last seven head to head meetings with Real Madrid has featured both teams finding the back of the net. Hence, staking on this market is valued at (1.61) with Bet365.
