Atletico Madrid will travel to the Basque region to take on Athletic Bilbao in La Liga on Saturday at the San Mames. Ernesto Valverde's men head into this fixture on the back of a 1-1 draw against Sevilla away from home. They have started their domestic league campaign in a rich vein of form and are currently placed third in the table with 17 points from eight matches. Another win on Saturday will further consolidate their position as it will open up a four-point gap to Atletico.

Meanwhile, Diego Simeone's troops had another disappointing outing in the Champions League in midweek as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Club Brugge. Their strikers have not been in the best of form as Alvaro Morata has scored just four goals in 12 games while Joao Felix is yet to open his account. Antoine Griezmann has also misfired and has just two goals to show for his efforts in eight league matches. Bilbao will be a difficult nut to crack for the Rojiblancos as they have conceded just five goals in eight matches.
