Ruud Van Nistelrooy struck 10 minutes after half-time to give Real Madrid a hard-earned victory at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday evening and send the champions seven points clear at the top of the table.

Bernd Schuster´s side came into the game with a four-point advantage over bitter rivals Barcelona and surprise package Villarreal, who both play on Sunday.

This game was played amid a passionate derby atmosphere in San Mames and Real were forced to weather the storm as Athletic piled on the pressure in the first 10 minutes.
