Real Madrid host Athletic Bilbao in La Liga on Tuesday. Los Blancos have hit top form and with Karim Benzema leading the line, they should be too strong at Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano.

Real Madrid are three points off the top of La Liga. They are full of confidence after a 1-0 win at Sevilla where they created 1.70 expected goals and allowed just 0.53.

Zinedine Zidane's side reached the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds after a 2-0 home win against Borussia Monchengladbach. Karim Benzema headed home both goals in the first half as Los Blancos cruised to victory.

Attackers Eden Hazard, Martin Ødegaard and Mariano are all doubtful with striker Luka Jovic out injured.

Athletic Bilbao Form

Gaizka Garitano’s side drew 1-1 at Getafe in a match with few chances. The Basque club then lost 2-0 at home against Celta Vigo after looking toothless in attack.
