Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal would have been eligible to play this match after serving a suspension against Osasuna, but the Spaniard is expected to miss out here with a muscular injury.
In that game, Athletic Bilbao managed 42% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. For Athletic Bilbao, the goalscorers were Iñaki Williams (3′) and Iker Muniain (90′). On the other side, FC Barcelona got 13 shots at goal with 9 of them on target. Pedri (14′) and Lionel Messi (38′, 62′) scored for Barcelona.
The Los Blancos are the reigning Spanish champions, and judging their form, they are on course to add one more title to their already-full cabinet.
