Match Preview

  • Still yet to concede after the 75th minute at home this La Liga (LL) season, Athletic Bilbao enter this clash unbeaten in four home league games (W3, D1) with the Basque outfit opening the scoring via the spot in two of those victories.
  • The last of those victories (W 3-1) bookended a chain of eight LL home games yielding under 2.5 total goals for/against. In addition, seven of their nine prior LL home victories this term have been accompanied by a clean sheet.
  • Speaking of how important the first goal might be, Real boast the away league’s only perfect record (W8, D/L0) when opening the scoring. Thus far in 2020, Real Madrid have recorded no LL away draws (W5, L2), while 50% of Real’s last four LL away wins have yielded a goalless first half.
  • In relation to that, none of Real’s last six LL away wins have seen them score before the 30th minute. All six victories saw Real Madrid win by an odd-numbered margin of goals, and both wins therein to yield a three-goal margin saw Real win the second half by a 2-0 scoreline.
  • Players to watch: Iker Muniain opened the scoring in last season’s league H2H here. His four prior goalscoring league games this term have all seen Bilbao avoid defeat (W3, D1).
  • Real’s Casemiro scored the winner in the Galacticos’ last LL away trip. Three of his last four LL away goals have proven decisive in victory.
  • Stat attack: Just 31.25% of Bilbao’s home league fixtures have witnessed both teams get on the scoresheet.
  • The HT result and margin has matched that of FT in five of the last six league H2Hs at Bilbao’s ground.
  • Real have won the ‘race to three corners’ in 31.25% of their LL away games.
