It’s a top of the table clash in La Liga as fourth placed Athletic Bilbao host title hopefuls Real Madrid at the San Mames Stadium.
Madrid could go top of the league for the first time this season after Barcelona slumped to a surprise 2-3 home defeat to Valencia in Saturday.
It means that victory for Los Blancos against Athletic Club will see them go two points ahead of the Catalans as the title race really begins to hot up.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are in brilliant form as well, having won five successive matches in the Spanish top tier, keeping four clean-sheets along the way and also progressing to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey.
However, Madrid will be without world record signing Gareth Bale, who continues to struggle with injury and will be absent for this fixture with a calf strain.
The hosts are not easy to beat at home either, having won nine and lost two of their fixtures at the San Mames this campaign.
The away side are good on the road though and with the prolific Cristiano Ronaldo starting in attack anything is possible.
Madrid will be without Fabio Coentrao, Sami Khedira and Raphael Varane for the match – along with Bale – whilst Bilbao have just one injury concern in the shape of Gaizka Toquero.
