At 4:15 p.m. CET in the Wanda Metropolitano, our side will host Athletic Club.
Athletic were the last club we faced in the Vicente Calderón and this will be their first time in the Wanda Metropolitano.
Both sides have come from convincing away wins in the Europa League. Although, Athletic’s league form hasn’t been convincing and they’re currently 13th the table.
Athletic have always been a competitive and intense side, but won’t be able to count on Aritz Aduriz and Raúl García.
Diego Pablo Simeone has never lost a home league match against the Basque side, but he still expects a difficult match.
"Raúl and Aduriz’ characteristics make it that the whole team comes up and doesn’t take advantage of our gaps. With Williams up top, we’ll have to keep an eye on that [the gaps]," he said.
