Real Madrid continue to bleed points and draw with Athletic Bilbao

The third straight draw for Real Madrid

Real Madrid fell into the trap of a draw against Athletic Bilbao negatively, in the match between them on Sunday evening, in the framework of the 18th round of la Liga.

Real Madrid dominated the first half, and it was more dangerous and the first threat came in the 12th minute after several passes between Benzema and Vinícius Júnior, and the ball reached the last and the ball was fired into the goal and the goalkeeper removed it at the right time.

In the 19th minute, the crossbar stood next to the guests after a powerful shot from Toni Kroos was removed after more than one player dodged and the ball penetrated Athletic Bilbao.

Bilbao's quick reply came in the 20th minute through Williams, who had a powerful shot, which Courtois sent to a goal kick.

In the 32nd minute, Rodrygo sent across to Karim Benzema, who met with a powerful header that was countered by the keeper.

Real Madrid continued to press, and in the 33rd minute Benzema took advantage of the defence's error, penetrated the penalty area and dodged the goalkeeper, and shot into the goal and the defence pushed it away at the right time.

The second half was not much different from the first, and in the 55th minute, from a corner, it would have been almost a first goal had it not been for the timely removal of the defence.

In the 59th minute, Cross sent across, which substitute Nacho met with a header but hit the crossbar.

Real Madrid continued in the final minutes, and in the 86th minute, al-Qaim again sympathized with Bilbao, countering a header and arriving in the hands of the goalkeeper afterwards.

With this result, Real Madrid's tally rises to 37th place in second place in the table, two points ahead of top-ranked Barcelona.

Bilbao reached the 28th point in seventh place, one point ahead of sixth-placed Getafe.
