Cristiano Ronaldo eyes history 

Cristiano Ronaldo has another chance to move ahead of Raul as Real Madrid`s top goalscorer of all time on enemy territory as Los Blancos make the daunting trip to take on Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday.

Ronaldo is just two goals off matching Raul`s record mark of 323, but was surprisingly unable to add to his tally as Madrid struggled past Granada 1-0 at the weekend.

Madrid escaped with all three points on Saturday thanks to a string of saves from Keylor Navas as he stretched his unbeaten streak to five games.

The Costa Rica international is now within 10 minutes of breaking Iker Casillas`s club record for the longest start to a campaign without conceding a goal.

“Things are going well. I am happy that people value my work and it is an honour to be at this club,” he told the club`s website.

“As a kid I dreamed of being here and it fills me with satisfaction to be part of Real Madrid`s history. The hard work has paid off and this is the way that will take us towards winning big things.”

Madrid will again be without Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Danilo through injury, whilst Sergio Ramos is a major doubt due to a dislocated shoulder.

Athletic have proven their ability to perform on the big occasion as they beat Barcelona 5-1 on aggregate to win the Spanish Super Cup at the start of the campaign and also beat Madrid at home last season.

However, they have taken just three points from their opening four league games as a side shorn of the rested Raul Garcia and Aritz Aduriz were beaten 3-1 by Villarreal on Sunday.
