Atletico travel to Bilbao for their Matchday 5 clash on the back of 1-0 home win over Malaga (1-0) at the weekend and looking to build on their impressive 15-match unbeaten run.

However, the hosts have been in a fine form themselves of late and although their six-match unbeaten streak was ended by Las Palmas (1-0) on Sunday, they'll still be in confident mood on home soil.

Jose Angel Ziganda’s have not suffered a defeat on their home patch since March (1-2 to Real Madrid) and that was their only competitive loss in front of the home fans since August 2016. 

That said, Atletico were the first side to beat Bilbao at their new stadium in 2013 - a 1-2 victory in the Copa del Rey - and they'll be mindful that Antoine Griezmann has had the measure of Athletic since moving to Spain. The Frenchman has scored eight goals against the Basque side, three when playing with Real Sociedad and five with Atlético. 

The France international scored a hat-trick in 2014-15 against Bilbao, one at the Calderón in 2015-16 (2-1) and a superb effort last season at San Mamés when the sides finished level at 2-2.

We have seen some thrillers in the recent head-to-head encounters between these sides with three or more goals seen in three of their last four clashes but a much tighter contest is expected on this occasion.
