Athletic Bilbao stunned the Galacticos on Saturday night after beating them 1-0 courtesy of a 26th minute strike by Aritz Aduriz.

This is Madrid’s third defeat in 11 league games  and if Barcelona win against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, Luis Enrique’s men will be on top of the league with a point advantage.

Athletic came into the game on a high having qualified for the Copa del Rey final, where they will meet Barcelona for the third time in seven years, in midweek.

Athletic goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz put in a solid performance denying Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale from getting an equaliser.
