Real Madrid’s recent games really shouldn’t be subject to analysis. After a streak of draws against many teams which had similar yellow kits, the Spanish giants now seemed to have found their form.
There are few teams in La Liga which can stand a chance against them, and Bilbao is one of them. Will we see a close game at Bernabeu this weekend?
Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao – 23/10/2016
Real Madrid 1.20 or 1/5 Draw 7.00 or 6/1 Athletic Bilbao 13.00 or 12/1
History tells us that Real shouldn’t worry too much. Bilbao only won once in recent times, drew one more game, and Real won the other 8. They’ve scored 6 times against Betis last time around, 5 times against Legia, and these goals came from lots of different players.
The team not only looks great at the moment, but they’re also not that reliant on Rolando as much as last season. Furthermore, their home form is famous around the world – teams need lots of luck to leave Bernabeu with points.
On the other hand, Bilbao’s home form isn’t very bad either. They are one of the good teams of La Liga and play decent, hardworking and direct football.
They only lost 1 game out of their last 7 and come to Madrid with high morale and high desire to not make a fool of themselves. Sadly for them, a 0-1 or 0-2 loss against Real could almost count as a good result.
Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips
That being said, we favor a home win for Real. The other bets we propose follow roughly the same timeline – Ronaldo, Bale and/or Benzema to score, Bilbao to concede more yellow cards and Real to have over 65% possession.
Also, a “both to score bet” can be very smart – if Legia and Betis managed to score against Real, Bilbao should be able to do this as well. The riskier thing we propose is also clear – Real -1,5.

Spanish La Liga Predictions And Betting Tips
Slowly but surely, Villarreal has found their place in the top 4 of La Liga, surrounded by much bigger teams. Their current form is nothing short of extraordinary – undefeated after 9 games. On the other hand, Eibar is one of those teams which can produce anything in this league, and they’ve even returned with a point from Bernabeu this season. Can they stop Villarreal at home? Eibar vs Villarreal – 30/10/2016 Betting Odds: Eibar 3.00 or 2/1 Draw 3.20 or 11/5 Villarreal 2.50 or 6/4 Mid-table teams like Eibar are the definition of inconsistency in any league. Just look at their most recent 4 games: Win over Sociedad at home, Draw away at Bernabeu, home loss against Osasuna and…
The last place from La Liga which is guaranteed European participation is currently 6th. Athletic Bilbao is currently the holder of this place and will look to keep it until the end of the league since they’re accustomed to playing in European cups in recent seasons. Meanwhile, Osasuna is looking to avoid relegation – but will they be able to win any points away against Bilbao? Athletic Bilbao vs Osasuna – 30/11/2016 Betting Odds: Athletic Bilbao 1.36 or 4/11 Draw 5.00 or 4/1 Osasuna 8.50 or 15/2 Weird enough, 4 of the 6 points Osasuna have gathered so far come from away games. They scored 11 goals in the first 9 games, not horrible for a newly promoted team, and…
Usually, when we’re looking for writing betting preview for a game, we look at the history between two sides. For Alaves vs. Real Madrid, we have to look all the way to ’06 to find the last game between the two – and it doesn’t look well from the home side. Is there anything else to bet on this game except for a Real victory? Alaves vs Real Madrid – 29/10/2016 Betting Odds: Alaves 13.00 or 12/1 Draw 6.50 or 11/2 Real Madrid 1.22 or 2/9 Although Alaves have produced the greatest surprise of the season so far, winning away from home against Barcelona, they are now slowly but surely moving down the table and losing most of their games….
