Bilbao vs Real Madrid
Real Madrid could only manage a draw in their last home league game against Villareal and now, they are only two points above second placed Barcelona. Real Madrid have a good away record in the league as they have lost only thrice and won ten of their thirteen away league games this season. They also hold the best offensive record in the league at the moment. Ramos (18/3 d), Modric (10/1 m) and Rodriguez (20/8 m) are injured but they have a large squad and can easily replace them.
Real Madrid must win in order to maintain their advantage over Barcelona in the league. They have a Champions League match next week but that will not prevent Ancelotti from fielding his best eleven against Bilbao. They already hold a two goals advantage over Schalke and they will play at home next week in the Champions League.
Athletic Bilbao have been in poor form at home in the league as in their last 6 home league games, they won only once, drew once and lost four of them, conceding at least a goal in five of them. Besides, they virtually have nothing to play for in the league as a European spot will be very difficult to achieve this season. Also, there will be some tired legs in the squad having played a Copa Del Rey match in midweek.
