Real Madrid will face a herculean task this week as they continue their league campaign. Los Blancos are set to face Bilbao in a difficult trip to San Mamés Stadium.
The Spanish giants are currently two points clear at the top of the table and still have one game in their hands as they can extend their lead to five points with a win over Bilbao.
However, it will not be an easy task for the reigning European champions as Bilbao are one of the toughest sides in the league as they boast an incredible record in home games having lost only to Barcelona so far this season.
Real Madrid, who face a daunting task to eliminate Bayern Munich in Champions League next season, are on a roll in the league as they have won all their last three league games. Zidane would look to get the best of his side as a win at Bilbao would be a huge morale boost for the team ahead of a grueling April schedule which could determine their season both in league and Champions League.
Here is how Real Madrid could line up against Bilbao in a crucial game that could have a huge impact on their season proceedings.
Real Madrid (4-3-3): Navas; Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Carvajal, Nacho; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo; Benzema
