Real Madrid are set to host Athletic Club on the final matchday of the 2022-23 La Liga season at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.

The hosts haven't lost any of their last 15 meetings against Athletic Club in La Liga (W11 D4), winning the last six. This is their best-ever unbeaten run of consecutive matches against the Basque side in the competition.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti has stressed that he aims to finish in the second spot, after losing out on the title to Barcelona, and his troops must eke out the three points to confirm the runners-up slot, irrespective of other results. The Italian has lost just one of his seven meetings with Athletic in the league and would hope to better that record over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Ernesto Valverde's side have all to play for as they are vying for a Europa Conference League qualifying spot. They are level on points with Osasuna but have an inferior head-to-head record which means even if they win against Los Blancos, they have to hope that Osasuna drop points against Girona.

They are not the sole contenders for the seventh spot with Girona and Rayo Vallecano also fighting for the European spot.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
