Celta were unbeaten in four meetings with Athletic before the Lions’ 1-0 victory at Balaídos in August. Celta Vigo have only won two of their last 11 visits to San Mamés.

Athletic Bilbao vs Celta Vigo betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds

Can Athletic Club stay in the hunt for European qualification?

Last weekend, Marcelino’s team drew 1-1 with Villarreal, taking the lead through Raúl García at Estadio de la Cerámica.

In truth, this was a disappointing result for Athletic given that their hosts had made 11 changes due to their Champions League commitments.

So, the Lions have only won three of their last eight matches, meaning they remain eighth, one point behind Villarreal and nine adrift of Real Sociedad.

The side from Bilbao are going to need a strong finish to the season if they’re to snatch a European place.

Celta de Vigo meanwhile also came into this campaign with European aspirations, having ended up eighth last time round.

However, O Celtiña slipped down to 12th last weekend following a last-gasp 1-0 defeat at RCDE Stadium against Espanyol.

So, Eduardo Coudet’s side have won just one of their last eight and look set for an unmemorable end to the season.

Will Athletic claim all three points at San Mamés?

At centre-back, Iñigo Martínez remains out but Yeray Álvarez is fit again.

So, he’ll partner Daniel Vivian at the back with Unai Núñez missing out.

Iñaki Williams will continue to lead the line having now featured in 226 successive La Liga games, dating back six years.

Eduardo Coudet’s side are finding goals hard to come-by, scoring just once in their last four matches.

This is despite starting all of Denis Suárez, Franco Cervi, Brais Méndez, Santi Mina and Iago Aspas last weekend.
