MADRID: All eyes set on Cristiano Ronaldo as he’s looking forward to dethrone Real Madrid’s legendary striker Raul Gonzalez Blanco as their top scorer just like he did in Champions League last season.
The stage is set for the Portuguese skipper Ronaldo to match the 323 goals tally of Raul, he’s just two goals away to reach the milestone and he can do it on his enemy’s territory as they will face Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday.
While talking to the media, Madrid’s coach Rafael Benitez said that we have only one outstanding player and he is Cristiano Ronaldo. Madrid will have to deal with Bilbao without the likes of Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Sergio Ramos.
Talking about Bilbao, Benitez said that they are a good team and Madrid lost there last year, so to defeat them we must maintain are focus like they do. recently Bilbao defeated Barcelona on a 5-1 aggregate to win the Spanish Super Cup.
According to La Liga points table, Athletic Bilbao has just managed to get three points from their first four games. The reason behind this poor start is that they have rested their key players Artiz Aduriz and Raul Garcia.
