(WATCH) Rodrygo Goes smashes Real Madrid ahead against Athletic Club

Real Madrid are aiming to boost their La Liga title charge this weekend with a vital win at home to Athletic Club.

Los Blancos are pushing to extend their advantage over El Clasico rivals Barcelona as the Basque side head to the Spanish capital.

Despite the pressure on the home team, Real Madrid have stormed into the lead on home soil, as Brazilian star Rodrygo Goes slammed home a superb opener.

The hosts dominated from the off and Rodrygo’s individual effort provided a perfect start for Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Victory for Real Madrid would ensure they can push on the title charge in the coming weeks and re-establish their eight point lead at the top of the table.

Real Madrid are not playing next weekend, due to the Copa del Rey final, and they will return to match action in their UEFA Champions League quarter final with Manchester City on April 9.
