Real Madrid sit third in the La Liga (LL) standings and will all but clinch a Champions League berth for next season if they win against Athletic Bilbao at home this Wednesday.
On the other hand, Madrid have the second-best attack in LL with 79 goals (2.46 per game), and only trail Barcelona (81) in that department.

Stat attack: Scoring goals has been one of the biggest problems for Bilbao this season. Their 35-goal total (1.09 per game) is the worst of the current top 13 teams in LL.
The head-to-head record shows a clear supremacy for Real Madrid, as they have four wins and one draw in the past five meetings against Athletic. That one draw (0-0) came in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
Inaki Williams (ATH) should be Madrid’s biggest concern. The speedy winger has six goals and five assists in 32 league appearances during the current term.
澳门金莎网址，By contrast, Athletic Bilbao are coming off a 3-2 home loss against Deportivo La Coruna, and they remain a very inconsistent side with just two wins in their last five LL matches (W2, D1, L2). As a consequence, Athletic sit nine points away from a potential Europa League spot.
Madrid are coming off a 2-1 away win over Malaga. ‘Los Merengues’ have been playing quite well of late, registering four wins in their past five LL matches, and only one defeat over their last ten (W8, D1, L1).
Where home form is concerned, Madrid sit fourth in a table that only accounts for each LL team’s last five home games. However, the current European champions have scored the most home goals (19) over that period.
Players to watch: Isco (RM) registered one goal and one assist against Malaga, and gained Man-of-the-Match honours for that performance. The Spanish international has six goals and six assists in 27 league appearances this season.
