Athletic Bilbao are definitely the toughest rival Real Madrid have faced since Zinedine Zidane took over as the manager. They are currently 6th in the Liga BBVA table after a shaky start to the 2015-2016 season and Aritz Aduriz is in great scoring form with 13 goals so far.

Real Madrid will have to play this match without Gareth Bale and Marcelo, who are still recovering from their injuries and trying to be ready for the Madrid Derby against Atlético two weeks from now. Danilo and James are expected to be their replacements while Zidane confirmed during the pre-match press conference that Mateo Kovacic will get Isco's starting spot for this match.

Real Madrid should have enough tools to dismantle Athletic at the Bernabéu. Home games have not been a problem this season and if Benzema, Modric and Co. maintain their good form, Zidane and his men should walk away with a win and all three points available.
