There will be fireworks when Atletico Madrid and Athletic Club face each other at King Fahd International Stadium in the Spanish Super Cup semis.
Los Rojiblancos head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Villarreal where Geoffrey Kondogbia was sent off in the stoppage time.
The former Valencia midfielder, though, is illegible to play in the Super Cup, while both Jose Gimenez and Luis Suarez are back from suspension.
The Lions, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Deportivo Alaves in the Basque derby. Since Athletic Club are likely to rely on their solid defence in Thursday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals.
Unai Vencedor limped off with injury in the last league match, while experienced midfielder Raul Garcia should be recalled to the starting line-up. Both Nunez and Villalibre miss out with injuries.
