Real Madrid has cut Barcelona's lead at the top of Spainish football's Primera Liga to three points after a 5-2 win at 10-man Athletic Bilbao.

Real move on to 60 points with 11 matches remaining while Barca have 63 ahead of their game at Almeria.

Real's victory, their 11th in 12 league matches, was a boost after the 4-0 Champions League drubbing at Liverpool.
