We're going to leave you here for the night. Have a look at the La Liga table. Better viewing for Barcelona and Valencia than anyone else.
- Ramos sent off for second booking
- Real eight points behind leaders Barcelona with draw
- Bale out again with calf problem
A year ago tomorrow, Sergio Ramos had just headed Real Madrid's last-minute equaliser in El Clasico to keep them six points clear at the top.
How they wish it was like that this season.
It's all over. Real Madrid fail to take advantage of Barcelona's draw with Celta Vigo earlier.
Real are just playing two banks of defenders now. Everyone, including Cristiano Ronaldo, is back. Athletic's final passes are poor though.
Cristiano Ronaldo is booked now. Real are losing their heads a bit. The referee has sent someone from the bench to the stands as well.
Four minutes added on. Can Real Madrid hang on? A few minutes ago, the question was can Athletic hold on...
Great wing work by Inigo Cordoba to step past Dani Carvajal, who chops him down. The most yellow of cards.
Sergio Ramos' 19 red cards in La Liga - all for Real Madrid - is a record for the Spanish top flight.
Athletic are looking a lot more adventurous now. They sense the chance to beat 10 men.
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is sent off for the 24th time in his career!
He was only returning from injury tonight, and he picks up a second booking - for catching Aritz Aduriz with his arm. His first yellow card, in the 11th minute, was for something similar on Raul Garcia.
Marcelo cross, Cristiano Ronaldo header, Kepa Arrizabalaga save.
A clean sheet would help Kepa's hopes of joining Real Madrid next month, I'm sure.
Double change for Real Madrid. Borja Mayoral replaces Karim Benzema up front, with Mateo Kovacic taking Isco's place in midfield.
And Athletic make a switch too. Inigo Cerdoba replaces Inaki Williams on the wing.
It's attack versus defence now. Dani Carvajal's cross is punched clear by Kepa, and Marcelo fires the rebound wide. Can Athletic hold on? Maybe the question is can Real create a really good chance?
Marcelo on the left wing - shoots. Parried away by Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Less than a minute later, the keeper holds onto another cross.
Real Madrid are warming up some subs. Dani Carvajal and Toni Kroos play some poor crosses in for Real, it's not the best. Fail to win this and they're eight points behind Barcelona.
Inigo Lekue replaces Oscar de Marcos at the back for Athletic.
Now Real have Casemiro booked for an arm in a face.
Close from Cristiano Ronaldo. He chests the ball up on the edge of the area and hits a volley which fizzes just wide. Maybe it clipped the outside of the post.
That's nearly as close as we've been.
Sergio Ramos briefly takes his mask off as he tries to get on the end of a corner. You'd think the exact time he needs it on is when he's going for a header.
Luka Modric crosses right out of play. Let's just call this a draw so we can all go home.
Excellent block by Mikel Rico as he throws himself at an Isco shot from the edge of the box. Very brave. Some handball claims from Real, it hit his arm but it wasn't intentional.
A lot of attempted passes being cut out at the moment. At both ends. Just a bit of quality lacking in the final ball.
Play on ref! Xabier Etxeita fouls Toni Kroos, and the ball bounces through to Cristiano Ronaldo - who would be in on goal.
But the referee calls it back for the free-kick. C-Ron isn't happy. He had a chip saved, but I think he knew before kicking it that it wouldn't have counted.
Etxeita is booked.
Chance for Athletic. Inaki Williams finds Markel Susaeta, whose first shot is saved by Keylor Navas and he puts the rebound wide.
Cristiano Ronaldo's cross is cleared to Toni Kroos, but the midfielder's effort is blocked.
Raul Garcia wants a penalty for Athletic but he went down like a sack of spuds after a touch from Sergio Ramos.
Good chance for Athletic, the first of the second half. Markel Susaeta squares the ball to Aritz Aduriz, but his effort from 20 yards is parried away by Keylor Navas.
Second half = under way.
A draw would take Real Madrid back up to fourth. Sevilla moved above them into the Champions League places a couple of hours ago with a 2-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna.
It's not been the best game.
Athletic defender Oscar de Marcos is booked for fouling Marcelo. Toni Kroos plays a low pass from the free-kick, and Athletic scramble the ball out for a corner.
Inaki Williams flicks the ball past Sergio Ramos, who pulls him back. Williams is so furious to not get a free-kick that he starts moaning to the officials and is pretty lucky not to be booked.
Athletic midfielder Ander Iturraspe goes down injured after appearing to pull up. And he's going to be replaced, he's able to walk off though. A standing ovation as Mikel San Jose replaces him.
Cristiano Ronaldo starts a move and he finishes it - but wide. He finds Isco, who plays it out to Marcelo. The Brazilian crosses to Ronaldo, who takes the ball down with his right foot and shoots with his left - but it's well wide of the near post.
He's only scored twice in La Liga this year.
A corner is cleared to Marcelo, who goes for the Hollywood volley but it's well over.
Another good Athletic chance. Raul Garcia crosses and Aritz Aduriz is inches away from being able to turn the ball home.
Now at the other end, Toni Kroos lashes a first-time effort wide from 25 yards.
Close. Inaki Williams is suddenly free in the penalty area after a one-two. The Athletic forward hits a good effort and Keylor Navas dives to tip the ball around the post.
Corner is cleared.
John McEnerney: San Mames never an easy place to visit for the big two. Real will have to be firing on all cylinders to make sure of the away win. CR7 has stalled on banging in the goals so far it won’t last long. Away win I think, 1-2. Ground to make up and now Real Madrid need to get motoring
Karim Benzema gets away with a dreadful pass across his goal as the ball ends up ricocheting away from Athletic.
Real Madrid work the ball to Toni Kroos, but his controlled 22-yard shot is held by Athletic keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is being strongly linked with a £17m move to Real by the Spanish media.
