Athletic Club vs Celta Vigo match preview

Can Athletic Club Bilbao arrest their slide down to the table?

A week ago, Ernesto Valverde’s team were smashed 5-1 by Villarreal with Oihan Sancet’s penalty, that got it back to 2-1 in first half stoppage time, a distant memory by full time at Estadio de la Cerámica.

This though merely continues Athletic’s terrible form, having taken just one point from their last four games, drawing at Mallorca whilst suffering home defeats at the hands of Sevilla and Betis.

As a result, the Lions have slipped down to eighth place, one point below Giorna, the side occupying the Europa Conference League spot.

After this, Athletic face Osasuna (A), Elche (H) and Real Madrid (A), meaning this particular match feels must win if they’re going to qualify for Europe for the first time in six seasons.

Celta de Vigo aren’t in great form either, needing a win to alleviate any lingering fears of relegation.

That made it three straight defeats for O Celtiña, who’ve actually won just one of their last eight, this a stoppage time home victory over rock bottom Elche.

So, Celta sit 13th on 39 points but, with their remaining fixtures Girona (H), Cádiz (A) and Barcelona (H), they could realistically lose all of those, meaning safety isn’t quite guaranteed just yet.

Who will claim a much-needed win at San Mamés?
