Real Madrid have welcomed back one of their recent absentees amid a host of coronavirus issues.
The draw saw Real Madrid’s lead at the top cut to six points, and they have also played a game more than second-placed Sevilla.
Ahead of that trip, they already know they will remain without the six coronavirus-related absentees Marco Asensio, Rodrygo, Andriy Lunin, Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Marcelo.
There is some good news, however, with back-up forward Mariano Diaz back in action following some unpleasant side effects from his coronavirus vaccine.
Mariano will make the trip to Bilbao, and he will provide much-needed support to what is a threadbare front three.
