Benitez had never won against Athletic Bilbao as a manager before this match and if there was one reason why he was able to win (apart from two Benzema goals )this time of asking was because of the midfield. The trio of Modric, Kovacic and Kroos balanced the midfield with great effect. Isco was also employed as a midfielder but he played in a more advanced role by helping out Ronaldo and Benzema in attack.
