Real Madrid continued their impressive run as they defeated Athletic Bilbao 3-1 to move joint top of the La Liga table on point with Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid.
The clash was marred with Raul Garcia being sent off for a foul on Toni Kroos and from that point, the game went to Real Madrid’s favour.
Toni Kroos scored the opener for the home team before Athletic Bilbao equalised to make it 1-1.
