Real Madrid missed out on the chance to snatch runners up spot in current La Liga standings as this weekend they were held into a draw by Athletic Bilbao. Both teams were really eager in grabbing all three points from that tie, triggering a tight encounter as both sides putting on an attacking display since the first 45 minutes.
After a goalless first 45 minutes, Los Blancos managed to take hold of things early in the second period and eventually getting themselves in front through Jese Rodriguez's finish on 65 minutes. However, that lead was eventually canceled out as Bilbao got back on level terms thanks to a goal from Ibai on 73 minutes. Things got much tougher for Madrid when on 75 minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo got sent off, forcing Carlo Ancelotti's men to finish that game with only 10 men.
