Check out the team news and our predicted line ups for tomorrow’s La Liga encounter between Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid.

Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao will host league leaders Real Madrid in the 34th round of the 2019-20 La Liga campaign.

The Basque side will once again be without experienced midfielder Bernat, who is still recovering from his hip injury.

Their head coach Gaizka Garitano is expected to name the same XI that started in the 2-0 victory at Valencia last time out, with club’s best goalscorer Raul Garcia leading the front line, ahead of Williams, Muniain and Cordoba.

Predicted XI:

Real Madrid

Real Madrid took advantage of Barcelona’s poor form in the past month and extended their lead on top of La Liga to four points, with only 15 available until the end of the season.

The Whites listed Raphael Varane, who picked up a head injury in the 1-0 victory over Getafe, as doubtful for the clash tomorrow, along with his colleague in the defense – Nacho Fernandez.

Eden Hazard is expected to return in the starting team, as he was only rested by Zinedine Zidane last Thursday, while Fede Valverde will be looking to get the nod over Modric in midfield.
