  • Competition: La Liga
  • Date: Sunday, 31st March 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UTC / 21:00 CEST
  • Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid)

For the majority of the season, Real Madrid and Girona were two teams that were in the race for the league title. Still, in recent matches, Girona dropped many points, and Los Blancos continued to play well and now have a ten-point advantage over Girona and eight over the 2nd-placed Barcelona. The bookies heavily favor Real Madrid to win the title, offering super-low odds on that (1.02). Also, Los Blancos have been incredible in the Champions League and will face off against Manchester City in the quarter-finals after the Bilbao game. 

Athletic Bilbao are having an excellent season in all competitions. They are in 4th place in La Liga and on pace to secure a Champions League next season. That would be a massive success, especially if you note that they haven't played in Europe since the 2017/18 season. Still, they only have a one-point advantage over 5th-placed Atletico Madrid, and that will definitely be a challenging task. Additionally, the Basque team is having an excellent run in the Cup, where they will face off against Mallorca in the Finals after the Real Madrid game. 

Real Madrid vs Athletic Madrid pick: Real Madrid to win and cover the -1 AH spread

Real Madrid are coming to this game after two big wins over Celta Vigo (4:0) and Osasuna (4:2). They are generally in excellent form and haven't lost a game since the 18th of January when Atletico Madrid won against them in the Cup. But that was away from home. At Santiago Bernabéu, Los Blancos haven't lost a game for the entire season! 

Athletico Bilbao are in very good form also, winning three of the last four. They are generally playing well, but if we can pinpoint one weak spot - that would be their road record. Away from home, they only won 35.7% of their total points.

In the first h2h game of the season, Real Madrid won 2:0 away from home. Considering all the above, we think that Los Blancos should secure another comfortable win at Santiago Bernabéu.
