Athletic Bilbao 0-1 Real Madrid: Sergio Ramos sends Real closer to title

Sergio Ramos has scored his last 22 penalties for Real Madrid and Spain – including three since football restarted

Sergio Ramos scored the sole goal for a second consecutive game as Real Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao to move closer to the La Liga title.

Ramos slammed home a penalty – just as that he did on Thursday against Getafe – after Dani Garcia fouled Marcelo in a decision written by VAR.

He has scored five goals in seven matches – all wins – since the restart.

Defending champions Barcelona took the gap straight back to four points if they beat Villarreal 4-1 on Sunday night.

Real Madrid’s make an impression on Athletic Bilbao was a casino game of few goalscoring chances, with Thibaut Courtois making only one save yourself.

Courtois became the initial goalkeeper to keep 17 clean sheets for Real in a single La Liga season since Francisco Buyo in 1994-95.

Zinedine Zidane’s side only need to win three of their remaining four games to secure a second La Liga title since 2012.
