THE PREDICTION

All the pressure is on Atletico coming into this game as they sit outside the top four and they need to put a run of results together. This is a tough assignment against Athletic who are typically strong at home and Atletico have only won three of their 15 away league matches this season. This is unlikely to be a goalfest and expect under 2.5 goals here and a potential stalemate could be on the cards.
