Check out our preview and betting predictions for tonight’s La Liga encounter between Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid.

Real Madrid travel to the Basque country for their clash with Athletic Bilbao from the 34th La Liga round.

The Whites will be looking to extend their lead on the top of the table to seven points ahead of Barcelona, prior to the Catalans’ trip to Villarreal later tonight.

Bilbao, on the other hand, are chasing their third consecutive win in top-flight, as they are trying to stay alive in the race for Champions League football next season.

What to bet on?

Winner – Draw

Real Madrid grabbed the victory in all six games since the return of La Liga, but the Whites might see their impressive run coming to an end when they visit the San Mames Stadium this afternoon.

Bilbao have lost just three times in 16 league matches they’ve hosted in the 2019-20 campaign.

Additionally, four of the last five meetings between these sides ended without a winner, including the reverse fixture at Santiago Bernabeu back in December.

Goals – Under 2,50

Athletic Bilbao’s 3-1 victory against Mallorca over the last weekend, is the sole from the last 11 games played at the San Mames Stadium that saw more than 2,50 goals scored in total.

Also please note that four of the last six encounters between Athletic and Real Madrid in Bilbao ended with two or fewer goals on both sides.

The stats here provide a strong back up for our suggestion, and in football and especially betting, you simply have to trust them.

Goalscorer – Sergio Ramos

Sergio Ramos is, ironically enough, Real Madrid’s second-best striker this season with nine goals in top-flight Spanish football and 11 across all competitions.

Madrid’s captain found the net in four of the six games the Whites played since the restart of La Liga. With odds over 4,75 on oddschecker.com, the Goalscorer: Sergio Ramos bet is definitely valuable in our opinion.
