It`s just the way things are that Barcelona and Real Madrid are going to take the majority of headlines, but Atletico Madrid continue to quietly go about their business. Atletico have really started the season very well and kept the pressure on Barcelona at the top of the table with a 1-2 win at Granada on Thursday night.Since losing their unbeaten start to the season, Atletico Madrid have won 3 games in a row in all competitions and they have won 11 of 12 games in all competitions. The side have won 6 games in a row at home in all competitions since opening their season at the Vicente Calderon with a 1-1 draw with Barcelona.
Last season was a tough one for Athletic Bilbao after all the success they had in the 2011-12 season after reaching the Europa League Final. This season has started much better for Bilbao and there will be a real feeling that they can challenge for a European place in the League and possibly even a berth in the Champions League.At the moment, Athletic Bilbao are 5th in the La Liga table and they have a strong 20 points from a possible 33 available. Unfortunately for teams like Bilbao, 3 of the 4 Champions League spots are likely to go to the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona, but that one spot left could be priceless. The side have a 2-0-3 record away from home, scoring 6 goals and conceding 9 so far.
Atletico Madrid have been scoring plenty of goals at home and they have to feel like they are invincible in front of their own supporters with lots of wins under their belt. However, you have to notice that Atletico haven`t been as good defensively as they have been known to be under Diego Simeone although they did earn their first home clean sheet in 5 games last weekend.Atletico are are facing an Athletic Bilbao side that have found the back of the net regularly too and I would be surprised if both teams don`t get on the scoreboard in this one.
