Real Madrid have proven that they are still strong without the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo, at least it can be seen from the first 3 matches of the Spanish League this season. While in the 4th or 4th Jornada match, Los Blancos will travel to Estadio San Mames Barria against the host, Athletic Bilbao. The match will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2018.
The host, Athletic Bilbao is one of the Spanish La Liga mid-table teams that can be said to always be able to transform into a stumbling block for teams of champions, including Real Madrid. They started the Spanish La Liga campaign this season with less disappointing results, in which from the three games the Basque Team managed to have 2 wins and only held a draw. However, despite playing at home, Bilbao are unseeded to win over Real Madrid.
The reason is, Real Madrid on paper is also better, with the star player material they have, even though the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo no longer exists. On the first three Spanish La Liga matches this season, Julen Lopetegui’s squad has managed to win 3 wins.
