Real Madrid will look to continue their impressive start to the La Liga season, as they travel to the Sam Mames stadium to face Athletic Bilbao.

Spanish La Liga

Teams: Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid

Venue: Sam Mames tadium

Time: 8.55pm

Bilbao have found life tough in the early part of the new season and will be trying to stop the rot after three defeats in four games in La Liga.

The last fixture between the two clubs saw Athletic beat Madrid 1-0 at home last season, but Bilbao have not won consecutive games against Real in La Liga since 2005.

Madrid, however, have won three of their last five trips to Bilbao, with the other two fixtures ending in one draw and one loss.

Los Blancos have kept four cleansheets in their last four matches in La Liga and have also managed to score at least two goals in their last five away games.

In team news, Real will be without Sergio Ramos due to a dislocated shoulder and will also be without Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Danilo too, as they are all injured.

Bilboa are almost back at full strength tonight and will welcome back Ander Iturraspe who has been out with a hamstring injury since July.

Here is how the teams will line-up:

Athletic BilbaoIraizoz, De Marcos, Balenziaga, Etxeita, Laporte, San José, Beñat, R. García, Susaeta, Aduriz, S.Merino

Real Madrid: Keylor Navas; Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo; Kroos, Kovacic, Modric; Isco, Cristiano Ronaldo y Benzema
