What has been Real Madrid and Athletic's form ahead of this match?
Real Madrid drew their last game against Leganés, which did not help them to keep up with Atlético in their race to finish second. Speaking about home games, Los Blancos have won all three previous games under Zidane, and they will surely try to keep that streak going when they welcome Athletic Club on Sunday.
Athletic has won four out of their last five, with that loss coming in a crucial match against Getafe. Their most recent clash saw the Basque side claim all the points with a 3-2 score against Rayo Vallecano. A key area to improve should be the team's defense, since they have only kept a clean sheet during that five-game span.
