Athletic Bilbao suffered a heavy defeat to Real Madrid last week, but that's not something new. The Basques have lost 6 times this season, but against the best teams - Real, Barcelona, Atletico, Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal. From the on, it's up to Athletico to take the maximum of meeting the weaker sides on paper, starting today against Osasuna. Fernando Llorente is in superb form, while Gabilondo, Javi Martinez and Gurpegi will be expected to help from midfield.
Osasuna are just a place behind Athletic with 15 points. The team is showing big difference in terms of results when playing home and away - 4-2-0 at home and 0-1-5 away. Mallorca, Santander and Atletico were able to see off Osasuna with no troubles and coach Camacho should think about changing the approach when playing away. Aranda is out of this clash, but Pandiani should be able to return, so not big problems for the guests.
Athetic have been playing very well at home this season and only the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona were able to beat them. In the games versus Almeria, Getafe, Zaragoza and Mallorca we saw the Basques' fighting spirit and I rely on it today as well. -0,75 looks like a good price, let's see what will happen.
