Athletic Bilbao 1 – Real Madrid 2

FC Barcelona are five points behind Real Madrid in the Spanish title race after Los Blancos beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 away form home on Saturday.

The Catalans are back in action on Sunday when they take on Valencia at the Camp Nou.

Story of the match

Traditionally, Athletic Bilbao away is one of the toughest games in La Liga and as they currently sit seventh.

Real Madrid took the lead through Karim Benzema but were pegged back midway through the second half thanks to an Aritz Aduriz equaliser.

Once again, and not for the first time this season, it was Casemiro who was Real Madrid’s hero with a 68th minute winner for Los Blancos.
