15th August 2022, K24 Laliga match this weekend at Laliga santimaa, Athletic bilbao vs Atletico madrid

Athletic Bilbao will try to build on their good start to the season when they play Atletico Madrid at San Mames on Saturday night.

With 17 points from their first eight games, the host team is now third in the La Liga standings, one point ahead of Atletico Madrid going into this encounter.

Since taking fourth in 2013–14, Athletic have not placed higher than seventh in La Liga, but this season they have the appearance of a top-four team after collecting 17 points from their first eight games to sit third in the standings.

The Lions have a history of five victories, two draws, and one loss in La Liga this season. They have earned 10 points from their past four league games after defeating Elche, Rayo Vallecano, and Almeria, and drawing 1-1 with Sevilla last weekend.

In addition to playing Barcelona on October 23, a victory against Atletico Madrid would support claims that the Basque team is capable of competing for a Champions League berth.
