co/D7Z4ZiUA8jWhile Benzema is sticking chances away, Gareth Bale has emerged as the key attacking force for Madrid, following on from his heroics in the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool in May. The Wales international has been held back by injuries issues and players such as Isco and Marco Asensio's rises in recent years, and he often found himself on the fringes before netting a brace in last season's Champions League final. This term, Bale appears to be in the best shape he's been in for years.
Since 2015, Los Merengues have won 12 and lost just two of 19 matches between these sides. Carlo Ancelotti´s side won 2-0 on their last trip to San Mamés Barria; however, Bilbao claimed a 1-1 draw when they last came face-to-face at the Bernabeu in June.

Pre-season performances have not been particularly great either. Ernesto Valverde´s side won just one of seven summer warm-up matches (W1, D3, L3). Athletic Bilbao Team NewsHead coach Valverde could have a full squad to choose from for Saturday´s opener at San Mamés Barria.

Los Merengues will need to improve on the road if they are to reclaim the La Liga crown. Real won just four of their final 11 away games last season.
