Athletic Club is hosting Atletico Madrid on April 30 at the San Mames stadium in Bilbao. Marcelino’s team comes into this match after taking down Cadiz 3-2 and securing an important victory for their climb towards 7th place. Atletico has only lost 1 of their last 5 games and won 3 of those. Carrasco and Kondogbia scored one goal each against Espanyol and their win helped them to gain much-needed points as the season comes to an end. Surprisingly, Atletico dropped a game that would’ve been considered easy for them against Mallorca, the 16th placed team.
Atletico wants to secure a top 4 finish this season because reaching 1st place is impossible now as Real Madrid leading the competition. Simeone’s men had a goalless draw against Man City in leg 2 of the Champions League quarter-finals before their match against Espanyol. It’s going to be crucial for Atletico Madrid to get as many wins as they can if they want to get a guaranteed top 4 finish this season. Let’s remember that they led the competition last season as they finished first with a 2-point lead over Real Madrid, so even if 1st place is impossible, Atletico still has a lot of motivation moving forward.
Athletic is sitting in 8th place and this isn’t anything new as they haven’t finished above 8th place in La Liga since 2017 but this season they will put all their efforts into climbing to a higher spot. The most important thing for Athletic Bilbao coming into this match is that the last time they played against Atletico, they actually managed to take down Simeone’s side quite convincingly. This happened early in the year when Yeray Alvarez and Nico Williams each scored one goal against Atletico. From the side of Marcelino, Unai Simon got the opportunity to score a goal at the 62-minute mark.
