Starting XI: Bilbao v Real Madrid

Spanish LaLiga

Teams: Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid

Date:15 September 2018

Venue: San Mames

Real Madrid make the trip to San Mamés Barria to face Athletic Bilbao, who they have struggled to beat in recent LaLiga encounters.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.

Los Blancos' last three visits to Bilbao have proved unsuccessful, having record a draw and two losses.

However, Julen Lopetegui's charges have began the campaign in fine style after winning their opening three matches, scoring 10 goals in the process.

Bilbao, meanwhile, have made a promising start to the season after beating Leganes before they were held to Huesca in their last encounter.

Both sides will be looking to better last season's showing in this fixture after playing to a goalless draw, in a game where Sergio Ramos was sent off.
 
Los Blancos will no doubt be looking at Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale to continue their fine form, as the pair, combined, have scored seven of Real's 10 goals this season.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Bilbao: Unai Simón, I.Martínez, Yeray, Beñat, Williams, Muniain, Yuri B., Susaeta, Dani García, De Marcos, Raúl García
 
Real: Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Ceballos, Kroos; Asensio, Modric, Bale; Benzema.
