17:00 GMT: Real Madrid vs Athletic Club preview

On Wednesday evening

Real Madrid host

Athletic Club in their rescheduled LaLiga Santander

Matchday 9 clash.

Los Blancos will be looking to extend their excellent run of form, as well as their lead over rivals Atletico Madrid at the top of the table.

After drawing with Osasuna on October 27,

Carlo Ancelotti's side have won six on the trot, racking up victories against Elche, Shakhtar Donetsk, Rayo Vallecano, Granada, Sheriff Tiraspol and Sevilla. In fact, they haven't lost since October 3 against Espanyol and have only lost once at home all season, with that coming against Sheriff in the Champions League in September.

Los Leones, on the other hand, have had a less than inspiring start to the 2021/22 season, although, largely thanks to having the best defensive record in LaLiga Santander, they find themselves seventh, just three points behind Barcelona.

Marcelino's side are winless in five, but they lost just one of those games, against Cadiz on November 5.

Last season,

Real Madrid beat

Athletic Club home and away in LaLiga Santander, although the Basque side did beat them in the Supercopa de Espana semi-final. Looking strictly at league fixtures, however,

Los Blancos are currently on a 12-game unbeaten run against the

Zurigorri.

Marcelino, meanwhile, will be without the suspended

Inigo Martinez after the centre-back was sent off against Granada. Elsewhere,

Inaki Williams and
