Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Athletic Bilbao

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's La Liga clash with Athletic Bilbao.

Real Madrid will be determined to take the La Liga title race to the final day as they prepare to travel to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday evening.

Zinedine Zidane's side beat Granada 4-1 on Thursday to move above Barcelona into second position in the table, two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid with two games left.

Los Blancos will surely need to win their final two fixtures of the season and hope that Atletico drop points against either Osasuna or Real Valladolid in order to finish at the summit.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Madrid's injury and suspension news ahead of their battle with Athletic.
