Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid odds


*Odds correct as of 08:30 on December 12

As we edge closer to Christmas, Atletico Madrid are currently third in La Liga, above fourth-placed Barcelona on goal difference — though head-to-head will come into play once they face off again, and Atletico already trail there. But more importantly, going into this game, Diego Simeone’s side are five points clear of fifth-placed Athletic Bilbao. Atletico have won 11 games so far this season, with one draw and three defeats, two of which have come in their last five games. But after losing to Barcelona to start December, Atletico bounced back with a 2-1 win over Almeria. And they crucially do have a game in hand on the teams around them.

Athletic Bilbao, as mentioned, are fifth and although they cannot break into the top four with victory here, it would be a big boost for their chances. The hosts go into this game unbeaten in their last six league games since losing to Barcelona in October, with three wins and three draws. One of those draws was against Girona, who lead La Liga at the moment, but Athletic Bilbao have also dropped points against relegation-battling Granada — a 1-1 draw last weekend.
