For five games sitting with Zinédine Zidane again that man on the coaching bank of the Blancos, who from 2016 to 2018 three times in a row could bring the Champions League in the Spanish capital. But the tide has not really changed for the better. Although all three home games were won under Zizou, but away the points remained. Given the small names that the White Ballet has recently faced, a ten point score from five games is not very impressive, which is why the World and European Champions are expected to take another final exams in this home game against strong Leones. The Bilbao team have won four of their last six games in La Liga, beating Atletico Madrid 2-0, knocking on the door to the Europa League.

Nevertheless, as far as the odds are concerned, the bookmakers at Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao are clearly in the direction of the Royal, which in this form is a rather daring assessment.

Real Madrid – Statistics & Current Form
Three coaches sat in the season 2018/19 so far on the bench of the Merengues. None of them has been able to cope with the difficulties that white ballet has been plaguing since the beginning of the season. It is already clear that Real Madrid will remain without any other title in addition to the overall insignificant overall victory at the FIFA Club World Cup in the 2018/19 season. A catastrophe for the highly-paid club, whose claim as a 13-time Champions League winner is definitely different. So nagged after three won royal league in a row, the knockout in the second round against Ajax Amsterdam on the self-image of the team, but also suffered in all other competitions bitter setbacks. In the UEFA Super Cup outclassed by the unpleasant city rivals Atlético. In the Copa del Rey despite good games in the end clearly no chance against FC Barcelona. And in La Liga, 13 points behind the Catalans and four points behind the Rojiblancos, again only the third power of the country.

The more urgent these days is the suspicion that it was not about people like Julen Lopetegui or Santiago Solari – the former remained finally unbeaten in his entire term as coach of the Spanish national football team. Rather, it seems rather in the team structure of the galactic to vote something something that Zizou has felt quickly and what has also shown in the recent disaster appearance in Leganés (1-1 draw) again, where Karim Benzema rescued his team a most flattering point. The more excited the fans are looking forward to the summer, if the team could change from scratch. That, for example, is no longer planned with Gareth Bale is already clear. On the hit list are also names such as Courtois, Vázquez and Marcelo or players such as Benzema and Kroos. For this, Zidane is already working behind the scenes on the commitment of real world stars. Among others, his compatriot Kylian Mbappé or the Belgian Eden Hazard are in talks.
Incidentally, all of these squad plans are so important for the tip at Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao, because the impending mood in the team is additionally suffering from this impending change. In addition, with Vinícius Júnior one of the top performers in this difficult phase until the end of the season fails, while also captain Sergio Ramos currently missing due to injury and the team can not hold together on the pitch. In short: With nine points ahead of fourth, the season for the Blancos has already run anyway. To assume that there will be a gala appearance of the white ballet until the summer break would be correspondingly naive.

Athletic Bilbao – Statistics & Current Form
As bad as the year 2018 was for Athletic Bilbao, so everything seems to be good for the moment. Last summer was a sober 16th place to book, with the founding member of the former Primera División, which is consistently first-class since 1928, just barely prevented the first descent in history. In the new season, it looked like a long time later, as if the team, which follows a virtually unique route in modern football, had to go into the second division this time. In any case, many critics wonder anyway when the concept of contracting only players who come from the Basque Country or at least from the Basque provinces can no longer compete in money-ridden professional football.
