Predicted lineups and form for Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid

A very interesting match awaits us on Thursday, so let's take a closer look at both teams and how they should fare in their upcoming duel:

Athletic Bilbao

With four wins and a draw in the last five games in all competitions, Athletic Bilbao is clearly in good form. The team once again reached the final of Spanish Super Cup where they defended their title, but they lost the final to their upcoming opponent Real Madrid. But Athletic Bilbao has a chance for revenge and if they can eliminated Real from Copa del Rey, then the competition becomes wide open.

Athletic Bilbao has a pretty clean bill of health at the moment since only Unai Vencedor is likely to miss this game with an hamstring issue. On top of that, Athletic Bilbao has no players on international duty right now – courtesy of their Basque-only policy.

Athletic Bilbao predicted lineup:

Simon – De Marcos, Alvarez, Martinez, Balenziaga – Berenguer, D. Garcia, Zarraga, Muniain – I. Williams, R. Garcia

Real Madrid

The current leaders in La Liga has four wins and one draw in the last five matches in all competitions, including a win over Athletic Bilbao in Spanish Super Cup final. That being said, the team did struggle a bit in La Liga recently since they have three wins, two draws, and one loss in the last six games. But overall, Real Madrid is having a great season – they already have one trophy and they can potentially add three more.

The biggest problem for Real Madrid right now is the state of the team. Marcelo is out with a suspension, while Mendy is out with injury. Casemiro and Vinicius Junior are questionable since they are still on international duty, while Rodrygo and Valverde are also with their national team and surely out of this game. Also, Benzema, Diaz, and Asensio are all dealing with fitness issues.

Real Madrid predicted lineup:

Lunin – Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Alaba – Modric, Camavinga, Kroos – Bale, Jovic, Hazard
