Real Madrid maintains its hopes of winning the La Liga with a difficult victory over Bilbao

Real Madrid achieved a precious victory over its host Athletic Bilbao with a clean goal, in the match that brought the two teams together this evening, Sunday, at the "San Mames" stadium, in the 37th round of the Spanish League, "La Liga", for the current season 2020-2021.

A goalless draw dominated the events of the first half, as Real Madrid controlled the course of the game during the first 45 minutes of the match, but without forming a great danger to the Athletic Bilbao goal.

The players of the royal team called on the referee to take a penalty kick in the 29th minute, after the defender of the Basque team touched the ball with his hand inside the penalty area.

In the second half, defender Nacho managed to score the winning goal for the royal team in the 68th minute of the match, after following up on the presentation of his Brazilian colleague Casemiro.

Real Madrid raised its score to 81 point in the top spot in the Spanish league this season, behind leaders Atlético Madrid with 83 points, after its fatal victory over its guest team Osasuna, 2-1.

The struggle between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid remains until the last round of the competition to decide the La Liga title winner during the current season, as the royal team hosts its counterpart Villarreal, while Atletico Madrid is a guest of Valladolid.
