Real Madrid passed up the chance to close the gap on Barcelona with a lacklustre draw at Athletic Bilbao.

Sergio Ramos broke a La Liga record for red cards in the latter stages when he received his second yellow card.

The Los Blancos skipper has 19 sending offs to his name, more than any other player in the league’s history, while it takes his tally in all competitions to 24.

Barcelona have kept their lead over Real to eight points with day’s action.
