Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Atletico Madrid play host to Athletic Club at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on day 5 of the new La Liga campaign. Los Rojiblancos came from behind to beat Espanyol in their last league match, with Thomas Lemar scoring the winner in the 9th minute of the stoppage time. Diego Simeone’s troops are determined to defend their La Liga trophy, but keep in mind that they head into Saturday’s clash following the Champions League encounter with Porto.
Cholo Simeone should have a full squad to choose from. The Lions, on the other hand, produced a fine display in a 2-0 win over Mallorca, with the team keeping their third clean sheet of the season. Athletic Club, though, are not regarded as good travelers, and they are unlikely to spoil Atletico Madrid’s party at “Wanda Metropolitano”. The likes of Oihan Sancet, Yeray Alvarez, Peru Nolaskoain, and Yuri Berchiche are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Luis Suarez):
Luis Suarez is a controversial footballer who plays for La Liga side Barcelona as a striker. The Uruguayan forward moved to Europe in 2006, signing a deal with Groningen. After scoring 10 goals in 27 league appearances for the club in the 2006/2007 Eredivisie campaign, he joined Ajax at the end of the season. The prolific striker scored no less than 81 goals in 110 appearances for Ajax and, as a result, Liverpool chiefs decided to sign him on 31 January 2011.
Suarez became the club’s most expensive signing and he was producing thrilling performances with the Anfield outfit between 2011 and 2014. Liverpool were on the verge of winning the 2013/2014 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and they eventually finished the season in second place in the standings.
In 2014 Suarez joined Barcelona and he was the top scorer in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign. He won the 2013/2014 Premier League Golden Boot as well and in 2011 he clinched the Copa America trophy with Uruguay.
