Spain – La Liga | Real Madrid Vs Athletic Bilbao; Monday, 01 April at 03:00 GMT +8

Real Madrid is looking to maintain their recent success in La Liga, having managed 63% possession and 17 shots at goal in a 2-4 victory against Osasuna. The team has been able to score 13 goals in their last six games, while Osasuna scored four. Real Madrid has not been beaten by Athletic Bilbao in their last 17 games and has been unbeaten in their previous 19 league matches at home. The team’s recent record of not being beaten by Athletic Bilbao in their last 17 games is a testament to their resilience.

Athletic Bilbao, who won 2-0 in La Liga, will face Real Madrid in a match following a 2-0 win against Alaves. They have a goal-scoring average of 1.83 and have turned 11 of their attacks into goals in their last six matches. However, they have not won against Real Madrid away from home in their previous 18 league games, a concerning run of results.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti will not be able to play Thibaut Courtois due to a meniscus tear and David Alaba due to a rupture ligament tear.

Ernesto Valverde, Athletic Bilbao’s boss, is dealing with a range of availability issues, including Yuri Berchiche and Ander Herrera, both of whom are not yet ready for selection.
