Ancelotti will be content that his new side have not been distracted by the drawn out saga that is the Gareth Bale transfer drama that has managed to stretch itself out for the duration of the summer. His side have been impressive in victories over Real Betis and Granada and will be hoping to make that three wins in three with the visit of Ernesto Valverde’s side.
Karim Benzema ignored the short lived transfer rumours linking him with a move to Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal, the French international having to publicly state that he did not see his future anywhere apart from the Spanish capital. But the speculation did the striker no harm who has netted in the respective wins over Betis and Granada.
Bilbao travelled to Real Valladolid on the opening day of the season and despite being the visitors left with a 2-1 victory.
Their second game saw them welcome Jose Luis Mendilibar and his Osasuna side to San Mames. And it proved a fruitful 90 minutes for the home side who ran out 2-0 victors.
Bilbao have come out publicly this week to discuss the interest in their star player Ander Herrera and whether he actually starts is at this point uncertain.
Josua Urrutia, the Bilbao President who played in midfield for the club for 15 years, spoke of the interest in the 24-year-old midfielder, saying: “There is an offer for Ander Herrera. For a player to go first the player has to express his desire to leave the club. Herrera has not told us he wants to go, and we have said we do not negotiate for our players.”
Xabi Alonso will be missing for last season’s runners up.
The 31-year-old midfielder is out for three months after sustaining a fractured metatarsal in training, Wednesday of last week. It’s further disappointment for the Spanish international who had only recently returned to training after missing out on the Confederations Cup in Brazil with a groin problem.
The last 16 games between these two sides have seen Madrid come out on top on 15 occasions, scoring 51 times and conceding only 12 goals.
Bilbao are weakened by the summer losses of Fernando Llorente and Fernando Amorebieta. However the arrival of Benat Etxebarria, Kike Sola and Mikel Rico could well prove to be able replacements.
But despite this and their strong start to the season, Valverde will be realistic that leaving the Bernabéu with any kind of a result would prove to be a significant result. However this should prove just out of his sides reach.
