Real Madrid hosts Athletic Bilbao
Real Madrid hosts Athletic Bilbao at the Estadio La Rosaleda in Malaga. This is a match from the 1/2-finals of the Spanish Super Cup. Stay with us and our football prediction betting tips today for this fixture.
Real Madrid are the reigning holders of the Super Cup, so for them it would be important to keep this trophy. At the final they will face the winner from the game between Barcelona and Real Sociedad. Are we going to see another El Classico at the Super Cup final?
Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions, which gives them some confidence before facing the tough Basques. Few days ago Madrid paid a visit to Osasuna in Pamplona, but only got a point with a 0-0 draw at the El Sadar.
We expect to see some rotations from Zinedine Zidane against Athletic. In Pamplona he put players like Fede Valverde, Martin Odegaard, Isco and Vinicius on the bench, but some of them might find a place in the starting eleven. Zidane would like to shake some things up, that’s for sure.
Athletic Bilbao are coming off a defeat in their last game. Marcelino’s team hosted Barcelona at the San Mames Barria and scored twice, but the match ended with a 2-3 win for the Catalans. Inaki Williams and Iker Muniain scored Athletic’s both goals in the match.
The same could be said about Marcelino – most likely he will make some changes compared to the game against Barca. Alex Berenguer, Dani Garcia and Balenziaga are some nice options for the starting eleven.
These are our football prediction betting tips today for the Spanish Super Cup 1/2-final between Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao in Malaga. We have a feeling that this game is going to give us some good and positive emotions. Madrid are favourites, but the Basques are always dangerous.
