Real Madrid starting XI: Keylor Navas, Carvajal, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Athletic Bilbao starting XI (To be Confirmed): Iraizoz, Boveda, Yeray, Laporte, Balenziaga, Iturraspe, Beñat, Williams, Raul Garcia, Lekue, Aduriz.
As always, it will be important for Madrid to control the tempo of the game and prevent Athletic from dominating offensively. They are very strong offensively so Nacho and Ramos will need to perform well if Madrid want to earn the three points at the new San Mames.
