    A second home defeat of the season for Athletic Bilbao and a big result for Real Madrid in the title race.

    Los Blancos go five points clear at the top of La Liga.

    One hand on the title?

    Second placed Barcelona will try and narrow the gap again, as they welcome Valencia tomorrow night.

    Until then, goodbye.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid

    Keylor Navas then gets booked for time wasting. Iker Muniain then upends Casemiro, but that's it as the ref blows the whistle.

    Lucas Vasquez with a full bloodied challenge to snuff out some later danger.

    Athletic are pushing for the equaliser, but the final ball is just not coming.

  5. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid

    A final change for Real, Karim Benzema is off for Alvaro Morata. Athletic also make their final sub, as Markel Susaeta comes on for Raul Garcia.

    Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid

    Cristiano Ronaldo is off, on comes Isco.

    Williams with another effort, forcing Keylor Navas into a save at the near post.

  8. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid

    Marcelo is struggling with Inaki Williams on the left, the 22-year-old has been linked with Liverpool and you can see why.

    Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid

    Should be three.

    Karim Benzema and Marcelo swap passes before the Frenchman sprints past Aymeric Laporte. He tries to flick the ball over the keeper, it comes back to Marcelo but he blasts over.

    Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid

    Yellow for Toni Kroos for a bad challenge on Aymeric Laporte.

    Instant response from Real.

    Toni Kroo's corner is flicked on by Cristiano Ronaldo to Casemiro at the far post, who controls with his chest and then taps home from close range.

    The cross comes into the Real box and Raul García heads it back across goal to the 36-year-old Aritz Aduriz, who has the simplest of headers to equalise.

    Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Real Madrid

    What a save by Keylor Navas.

    He makes a one handed stop from point blank range to deny Inaki Williams, who was in acres of space.

  16. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Real Madrid

    Lucas Vazquez is coming on for Luka Modric.

    Since that Aduriz chance in the 46th minute, not much has happened at either end.

  17. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Real Madrid

    Iker Muniain is on for Inigo Lekue.

  18. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Real Madrid

    Gareth Bales has had a reasonably quiet game, stationed on that left wing.

    As I say that, Casemiro finds the Welshman, who controls, take a touch and has a pop, but it's wide.

  19. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Real Madrid

    Raul Garcia escapes without a booking for a trip on Casemiro.

    Casemiro
  20. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Real Madrid

    Real with a corner, they play it short and Toni Kroos tries to float a cross to the far post

    Another corner and it's cleared by Athletic.
