Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid 16.05.2021

With the curtains closing on the La Liga season, Real Madrid will make a last-ditch effort to try and push the fight to the final day of the season as they travel to Bilbao on the penultimate matchday. The title is down to these two neighbours after Barcelona choked at Levante in midweek, throwing away a 2-0 lead and conceding a late equalizer as they shared the spoils in a 3-3 draw. Los Bloncos, meantime have kept pace with the neighbors and are just two points adrift as go to the final two fixtures. 

Bilbao on their part lost the chance to contest for European places after a disappointing 1-0 at relegation-threatened Huesca. They were shockingly woeful in the game as Huesca made them chase shadows all game and were it not for the heroics of their keeper Unai Simon, the scoreline would have been embarrassing. 

Anything short of a win would effectively hand the title to Atleti. So all the pressure is on Real Madrid to produce the goods here. We fancy them to pick up all three points on offer here
