Real Madrid have gone top of La Liga with a late 2-1 home defeat of naive Athletic Bilbao.

Karim Benzema gave Real an early lead only for Sabin Merino to level for the visitors.

Super-sub Alvaro Morata spared Real's blushes with a winning goal seven minutes from time.

The Whites are now one point above Sevilla, who temporarily took top spot earlier with a 1-0 defeat of previous leaders Atletico Madrid.
