Cristiano Ronaldo backheel special spares Real Madrid from Athletic Bilbao defeat

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Another special Cristiano Ronaldo goal -- this time, a superb backheel -- came to Real Madrid's rescue in La Liga on Wednesday, earning them a 1-1 draw at Athletic Bilbao.

The Portuguese forward flicked Luka Modric's low drive into the back of the net in the 87th minute with the deftest of touches, to cancel out the first-half chip from Bilbao's Inaki Williams.

They are three points behind their cross-city rivals, second-placed Atletico Madrid, who play their game in hand at Real Sociedad on Thursday. Barcelona lead the way on 83 points, 12 clear of Atletico.
