[[[TODAY>>>>]##]] Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid live watch 12 August 2023

Athletic's possession-based attack may be their undoing. Madrid are great on the counter, and despite Bilbao's strength in defense, they will get torn apart if the likes of Gareth Bale, Marcelo, Cristiano Ronaldo or Angel Di Maria get any space down the flanks. Real Madrid will face a tough resistance in the first half and early into the second half. But Karim Benzema will score the first, which will force Athletic Bilbao to open up. Ronaldo will take advantage and get Madrid's second goal to lock up the result.

There's also an interesting dichotomy at play, as Bleacher Report's Ryan Bailey highlighted the difference between the way Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid approach the transfer market and build their clubs:Bilbao's attitudes toward recruitment couldn't be any more different than that of their anxious visitors on Sunday. Real Madrid are renowned for their incredible youth setup, but relatively few of their homegrown stars get to shine at the Bernabeu due to a policy of importing megastars that began in the 1990s. In 2013, for example, Transfermarkt shows us that Madrid spent nearly £144 million on players.

In contrast, Athletic Bilbao are a team on the up. Eduardo Berizzo, a former assistant of Marcelo Bielsa who’d taken Celta Vigo all the way to semi-finals of the Europa League in 2017, failed to meet expectations and didn’t last until the New Year, winning only two games in the process. But Bilbao have been transformed since the appointment of Gaizka Garitano in early December and currently lie seventh, just three points off the European spots.

"It's a tricky match because Athletic are playing very well at the moment and everyone knows playing at the San Mames is not easy, " he said, per Eurosport's Pitchside Europe. "But it's a good time for us to be playing there. We have confidence and desire and we are excited about giving everything to win. "When the league winner has totaled 100 points at the end of the season, any time Barca or Madrid fail to win, it's a big deal.

PredictionAs great as it would be to see Athletic Bilbao snatch a draw or even pick up a shock victory, Real Madrid are playing too well at the moment to see them get anything less than three points.
