Recent results & form
Barely three weeks have passed since the two sides last met and at the Bernabeu Athletic have created plenty of clear scoring opportunities. Marcelino Garcia will be hoping his side can build on their first win in nine games and, against Real Betis this weekend, the Basques have performed admirably.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, were frustrated on Sunday night by a determined Cadiz side who defended superbly. Carlo Ancelotti’s side looked a bit jaded at times and they could be tested once again by an Athletic side running harder and at a higher intensity than any other team in La Liga.
