The Real Madrid-Athletic that will be played the day after tomorrow at the Bernabéu is the match corresponding to matchday 9 of this league, which was postponed due to CONMEBOL commitments.
Marcelino’s team was then in seventh position in the table after having defeated Alavés 1-0 in San Mamés and had problems in the Champions League. The rojiblancos accumulated a total of 13 points. The suspension of this classic motivated that the lions were three consecutive weeks without competing.
Around the stop; Athletic’s baggage has been 7 points as a result of its victory in San Mamés against Villarreal, the draws away against Espanyol, Real and Levante and at home against Granada and the defeat in Bilbao against Cádiz. The lions slept tonight in eighth position with 20 points.
Madrid, which closed the eighth day as the leader with 17 points despite losing to Espanyol 2-1, has since added five victories and a draw in the League, ranking alone as the leader with 33 points, and three victories in the Champions League.
