RM Vs ATH Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Real Madrid shun off their aberrations to once again regain their identity as revered opponents.
After a horrid November, Real Madrid have ushered in December exactly in the manner the club would have wanted. With three wins in succession, the club is back to doing what it does best to once again emerge as a firm challenger for this edition’s La Liga trophy.
The 2-0 triumph over Atletico Madrid the last time around has the potential of being the catalyst of Real Madrid’s season. Not only did the side manage to down its much hated City rival but more importantly put the deficit between itself and Atletico Madrid to just three points to show that they are very much in the hunt of another glistening title.
Where Real Madrid are making massive strides in the points tally, Athletic Bilbao on the other hand are finding it extremely arduous to wrench out of their impasse. The side has failed to win its last three matches, results which see their dreary form this term continue unabated.

Date And Time: 16th November, Wednesday- 2:30am IST
Venue: Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium, Madrid
- Benzema: 4 Goals, 3 Assists
- Iker: 2 Goals
We begin our set of picks for today’s clash with the pick of Unai Simon from Athletic Bilbao. The side’s goal-keeper has been the only player interested in keeping out attacks with him accruing a multitude of saves.
Ever since Sergio Ramos has recovered from his injury, Real Madrid have looked a completely different proposition. The club has gone onto keep three cleansheets since the CB has returned, performances which allude towards the massive influence he exerts on the club.
Giving him company is Dani Carvajal who pulled off an assist in the previous tie. Raphael Varane and Ferland Mendy both link up with him owing to the high likelihood of a Real Madrid cleansheet today.
With Toni Kroos and Luka Modric once again taking charge of the side’s midfield with their quick passing and ball handling capabilities, both will feature for us yet again.
Athletic Bilbao will see us rope in their top scorer, Iker Munian and Unai Lopez who has the two goals as well.
Striker Iker Munian’s two assists make him complete the triad of attacking picks from the visiting setup. Real Madrid’s top scorer, striker Karim Benzema wraps up our team for the tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ramos’ two goals see him emerge as our captain while Karim is the vice-captain.
Simon, Dani, Ramos, Varane, Mendy, Kroos, Modric, Munian, Lopez, Karim, Williams
