Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Match Predictions
This Sunday, Real Madrid will be looking to bag the prestigious Supercopa de España while Athletic Bilbao will try their hardest to defend their crown. Madrid has topped the La Liga league table and is looking in red hot form.
On the other side, Athletic Club placed ninth in the La Liga standings but they have defeated Barca last year in the Spanish Super Cup’s final. With its great coordination and team form in recent matches, Real Madrid is clearly the favorite going into the finals.
However, Athletic Bilbao has all the abilities to stun the La Liga league toppers if they hit their stride at the right moment. We predict Real Madrid to take home the title this time. But, can we expect an upset from Athletic Club? YES!
Athletic Bilbao substitute Nico Williams give the Spanish Super Cup holders 2-1 come-from-behind win over LaLiga champions Atletico Madrid in semi-final.
Bilbao set up a showpiece clash on Sunday against Real Madrid, who beat Barcelona 3-2.
