Karim Benzema fired the visitors into a half-time lead from Cristiano Ronaldo's cross before Aritz Aduriz briefly levelled for Athletic.Six minutes later Ronaldo was denied again, this time by a stunning save from Kepa Arrizabalaga as the young goalkeeper leapt low to his left to turn the ball to safety.Madrid finally made the breakthrough on 25 minutes as Casemiro's ball over the top for Ronaldo broke Athletic's offside trap and the Portuguese produced an inch-perfect low cross for Benzema to slot home his sixth goal in as many games against Athletic.Kroos's delivery was flicked on by Ronaldo and midfielder Casemiro was completely alone inside the six-yard box to slot home from close range.
