Our match prediction:
After 3 outstanding performances against Shakthar, Espanyol and Real Betis Los Blancos won against Granada but without any flair of their previous games. With the help of the referee the game didn't end in a draw. Athletic de Bilbao is performing very insecure this season. In big games the Basque are able to perform above their expectations. We expect a rough night for Real Madrid in this thriller. Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale will have to lead their team towards the victory and stay in Barcelona's track.
