Frenchman Karim Benzema and teammate Casemiro scored to aid Real Madrid to an important win over Athletic Bilbao, on Saturday.
This win helped them to stretch their lead to five points in the La Liga standings.
The goals came on either side of an Aritz Aduriz header.
Athletic had won 16 and drawn three of 19 games in front of their own fans since their last home defeat, which came against Barca in August, and were bright and industrious in the early stages.
