Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao: Predictions
Although the hosts don’t have much at stake other than second or third they are in better form than the visitors who have won just one of their last seven. Madrid should win this one but enhance the price a little by taking both teams to score as Bilbao need to win this one.
Benzema and Vinicius Junior are doubts but that doesn’t matter as this has allowed Rodrygo a rare chance to shine in the spotlight. The Brazilian has grabbed three in his last two games and looks good value to net at least once in this one.
