Athletic Bilbao have finally found a measure of form but are they ready to take down Real Madrid at the Bernabeu?
The likely answer is no, but Los Blancos assistant Coach and former Athletic defender Aitor Karanka has warned against complacency.
“Athletic are going to make things difficult because even though they have not been at their best this year, they still have quality players.”
Up to third but still eight points behind Barcelona, Madrid's title hopes remain balanced on a tightrope.
Los Leones striker Aritz Aduriz believes his side will 'go into the game relaxed having achieved two important victories.'
“Yes we have injuries but we also have a great team, and I've got a lot of confidence in the players who will be out there.”
