Athletic Club vs Real Madrid match preview

This is the game of the opening weekend in La Liga, so can Athletic Club claim a memorable Saturday night victory against their el Viejo Clásico rivals?

Last season, Athletic, once again, missed out on European qualification, finishing just one place and two points below Basque rivals Osasuna, who took the Europa Conference League spot.

So, breaking into that top seven has to once again be the aim for Ernesto Valverde’s team, with the Lions having still not featured in Europe since 2017/18.

Real Madrid meanwhile failed to retain either of the big trophies, ending up ten points adrift champions Barcelona in La Liga, whilst also being demolished by Manchester City in the Champions League semi-finals.

Los Blancos did pick up the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Copa del Rey, defeating Osasuna in May’s final, and, despite all expectations, Carlo Ancelotti has remained in situ a manager.

They have lost Karim Benzema this summer, with Joselu, right now, the only obvious centre-forward, while Jude Bellingham is also set to make his debut in Bilbao, having arrived for over €100 million.

The expectation is that Real Madrid will wrestle the title back from Barcelona, but this’ll be a serious opening night test of their credentials.

Will los Blancos leave San Mamés with all three points?
