Sports Mole looks ahead to Sunday's La Liga clash between Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid.

Athletic Bilbao welcome second-placed Atletico Madrid to San Mames on Sunday having failed to register a win in their last four La Liga games.

Marcelo Bielsa's men have struggled to replicate their form of last season and currently languish in the lower reaches of the table.

Los Leones have no new injury worries ahead of the match, but a number of the first team are in danger of earning an automatic suspension.

Fernando Amorebieta, Iker Muniain and Markel Susaeta are all on four yellow cards, while Oscar de Marcos and Carlos Gurpegi are both on nine.

Los Rojiblancos stars Felipe, Mario Suarez and Diego Costa are also on four yellow cards.

Diego Simeone has guided his team seven points clear of cross-city rivals Real Madrid, who are chasing in third place.

Recent form:

Bilbao: WWLLLD

Atletico: WLWDWW

Possible lineups:

Bilbao: Iraizoz; Aurtenetxe, Amorebieta, San Jose, Iraola; Iturasspe, De Marcos, Herrera, Muniain, Susaeta; Lopez

Atletico: Courtois; Godin, Luis, Juanfran, Miranda; Tiago, Koke, Turan, Gabi; Costa, Falcao

Sports Mole says: 2-1
