Real Madrid
The "Galacticos" have been neck and neck with Girona for a considerable period, but ultimately, the "Los Blancos" lacked the endurance for the long haul, and presently, they sit atop the La Liga table in proud isolation. They outdistance their closest rival, Barcelona, by a margin of eight points, indicating that their primary focus in the latter part of the season may not be merely maintaining this lead but clinching victory in the Champions League. After drawing 1-1 at home with Leipzig in the premier European competition, Real Madrid secured two victories against Celta Vigo and Osasuna in La Liga. Overall, Real Madrid has not suffered defeat in regular time since late September, when they lost to Atletico Madrid in the league.

Athletic Bilbao
The "Red and Whites" are having a commendable season, potentially securing a spot in the Champions League. Currently, Ernesto Valverde's side occupies the fourth position in the La Liga table, amassing 56 points. They trail Madrid's Atletico by just one point, while they lag six points behind Girona, who holds the third spot. In their last league fixture, Athletic defeated Alaves 2-0 at home, marking their second consecutive victory and their third in the last five rounds. However, it's worth noting that they have won only one away match out of their previous five.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Lunin; Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho, Mendy; Valverde, Tchouameni, Kroos; Bellingham; Brahim, Rodrygo
Athletic Bilbao possible starting lineup:
Simon; De Marcos, Vivian, Yeray, Lekue; Benat, D Garcia; I Williams, Sancet, N Williams; Guruzeta
