Real Madrid hope to get back on track and finish their La Liga season with a bid for second place as they face a determined Athletic Club Bilbao, who are gunning for a Europa League position.

While Real Madrid are simply hoping to get back on track after a disappointing game against Leganes in La Liga last weekend — with little reason to play since they are sitting securely in third place, per Sky Sports — their Sunday opponents are fighting to cap a stunning resurgence this season. After muddling to a 16th-place finish last season, Athletic Club Bilbao are within striking distance of not only a UEFA Europa League place, but with a little luck, even a top-four finish that would put them into the Champions League next season. But to have a hope of achieving that lofty ambition, they must win Sunday’s match, which will live stream from the Bernabéu.

Kickoff is set for 4:15 p.m. Central European Summer Time on Sunday, April 21, at the iconic 81,000-seat Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, Spain.

When Madrid hired their third head coach of the season in March — bringing back Zinedine Zidane, who guided the club to back-to-back Champions League titles in 2017 and 2018 — they got off to a strong start, winning their first two games and appearing to turn around a disappointing season, as Soccerway stats show.

But in their last three matches, all under Zidane, Real Madrid have a 1-1-1 record. At the same time, Bilbao switched managers back in December, and new boss Gaizka Garitano has engineered a remarkable turnaround, per Fansided, positioning the team six points behind Sevilla, who now occupy the fourth and final Champions League place.
