Atletico Madrid are undefeated in their last five league-games, and have won three of those. Last time out, Diego Simeone’s side secured a narrow win over Celta vigo at Balaidos, thanks to Memphis Depay’s lone goal in the 89th-minute. It was their 11th top flight victory of the season. Colchoneros have already been knocked out of the Champions League and the Copa del Rey, therefore Simeone is left with only the La Liga to focus on. Meanwhile, Atletico’s home-form hasn’t been very great this season, winning just five of their 10 matches at Metropolitano, boasting just the 13th-best record in the division.

Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, are heading into the match on the back of two consecutive wins. Los Leones thrashed Cadiz 4-1 on February 4, before securing a come-from-behind win over Valencia at Mestalla last Sunday. Nico Williams canceled out Samu Castillejo’s opener, before Oihan Sancet scored the winner 18 minutes from time. It was the Lions’ ninth LaLiga-win of the campaign. After the game against Atletico, Ernesto Valverde’s side will host Girona in the league next Sunday, before traveling to El Sadar for the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final tie against Osasuna on March 1.
