Asier Illarramendi replacing Lucas Silva is the only change for Real Madrid ahead of Athletic Bilbao in La Liga this evening.
The former Real Sociedad starlet has found himself behind the Brazilian new boy in recent weeks, but he is handed a rare chance to impress at San Mames.
A win for Madrid would restore their five-point lead atop La Liga, with both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid due in action tomorrow.
