It took yet another Sergio Ramos penalty to take all three points for Real Madrid as they beat Atheltic Bilbao one-nil.

Real Madrid opened up a seven-point gap at the top of La Liga after defeating Athletic Bilbao.

Just as they disposed of Getafe a few days ago, in similar fashion they beat the club from the Basque country.

It was a solitary goal courtesy of Sergio Ramos, from 12 yards. The club captain converted the penalty kick after VAR ruled that Dani Garcia had fouled Marcelo in the box.

Cool as you like he found the back of the net.

It was far from a dominant performance by Los Blancos.

But with Barcelona not playing until later today it means they are now firmly ahead of their rivals and the pressure is Lionel Messi and the rest of Quique Setien’s men to at least match their bitter rivals to keep the title race alive.

As Zinedine Zidane’s side march towards a La Liga title, just how much do you really know about the Spanish giants?
