Athletic Club and Real Madrid team status
Despite their three defeats against Real Madrid this season, the Bilbao side will be coming into this game with confidence as they beat Barcelona in a thrilling game after their Super Cup defeat.
They also managed to beat Rayo Vallecano before getting into the international break. Athletic managed to get on level terms with Rayo Vallecano at 31 points, they are ahead of them on goal difference.
They might miss their star player, Iker Munian as he is recovering from COVID. Also, Unai Vencedor will be out because of his hamstring injury.
The Los Blancos have a depleted squad at the moment as some are recovering and some are out for international duty.

Also, they are coming into this game with a hard-fought draw against Elche. Karim Benzema is still recovering from his injury during that match.
Ancelotti will like to start with Luka Jovic as he would want a fully fit Benzema for the upcoming games as Real will face Paris Saint Germain on the 15th.
Moreover, Mendy has an adductor problem so Alaba might play at left-back. This will make way for Nacho at the center back position.
Casemiro and Vinicius Jr are also coming from international duty but Ancelotti would like to start them in the quarter-finals.
