Real beat Ath Bilbao 2-0 to regain an 8-point lead at the top

Los Blancos defeated the Lions at their stadium.

Real Madrid won against Athletic Bilbao 2-0 at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, and Los Blancos are again 8 points clear at the top in La Liga ahead of Barcelona 8 rounds before the end of the league.

Rodrygo scored a phenomenal goal from the edge of the box into the top right corner in the 8th minute after a fantastic assist from Brahim Diaz to give the home side the lead.

In the 2nd half, Real Madrid deserved a penalty but the referee didn’t give it because of an offside but the replays showed that the ball ended in Los Blancos player after Bilbao player returned the ball. Despite that, the home side doubled its lead in the 73rd minute when Rodrygo scored his 2nd goal in the match after Jude Bellingham’s assist.

Eder Militao made his return in the extra time as the Brazilian replaced Daniel Carvajal as that was his 1st match in La Liga since round 1 when he suffered a torn ACL.
