ATH Vs RM Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Athletic Bilbao’s defence looks to halt Real Madrid’s rampant foray towards the title.
Where Barcelona just can’t scrounge their way a win in La Liga 2019-20 at the moment, Real Madrid on the other hand just can’t stop winning. Although it was only till a week back that Real Madrid were clutching at straws in second place, the narrative is a long gone one with the club sitting comfortable in first position at the moment.
With Barcelona slipping to two draws on the spin, Real Madrid were quick to capitalise on those drab results. The side defeated Getafe 1-0 the last time around to make it five wins on the spin and with it move four points clear in top spot.
The prestigious trophy is moving ever closer to Real Madrid with each passing gameweek with no on being capable of stopping a side which has proved its worth on ample occasions when found wanting. Although Athletic Bilbo today will serve as a dicey opposition given their well endowed defence, Real Madrid’s mettle and ability to up the ante when most needed should see the side continue to maintain its 100% winning record since the restart.
Having faced Barcelona only a couple of encounters back, Athletic Bilbao showed in that 1-0 performance what they are capable of as a side. This is a side capable of halting the staunchest of attacking teams, a side capable of making any team’s attack dormant.
And they’ll serve a stern test to Real Madrid as well but ultimately falter in their task of salvaging anything from the contest owing to the table toppers ability to rise to the occasion.

ATH Vs RM Dream11 Picks
We have little qualms in coaxing Unai Simon into our goal-keeping docket for the upcoming contest. The Athletic Bilbao goal-keeper has led from the front in defence this season, a player who showed the last time around in his cleansheet against Valencia why he’s emerged as such a gritty shot stopper.
Three cleansheets on the spin including the four in the last five fixtures for Real Madrid show why this is the league’s most clinical defence. This is a side which has let in a frugal 21 goals all season long, a team whose sprawling forte in the defensive side of the game has seen them taste consummate success in the league.
And with Athletic Bilbao having traditionally struggled to score this season, this looks set to be another typical cleansheet for Real Madrid. Captain Sergio Ramos will become the first name to be enshrined in our Dream 11 framework with the player scoring on 9 occasions for the club including the side’s only goal against Getafe the last time around.
With the two goals, Raphael Varane comes in as well along with the fullback pairing of Dani Carvajal and Marcelo, two players capable of providing unstinted support to the side’s attacking gameplan.
With four goals and five assists in this edition of the season, midfielder Toni Kroos will become the first name to make his way into our Dream 11 side. He’s partnered by Casemiro, a CDM who is capable of rolling his way the tackles and blocks without any qualms.
If there’s any player capable of making things tricky for Real Madrid defensively, its Athletic Bilbao’s Iker Muniain. The player has scored on 5 occasions for the club this season to emerge as the heart of their attacking travails, a player capable of nonchalantly cajoling his way goals against any side.
With the four goals in his artillery, Inigo Cordoba makes for a must have pick from the side as well to complete the one-two of picks from the side.
With the 17 goals and 7 assists for Karim Benzema this season, the striker has top scored for the side to see him become a must have pick for the imminent affair. Athletic Bilbao will elsewhere se us rope in Inaki Williams who has the 6 goals, a player who has scored against some of the biggest clubs in the most adverse of situations.
