Match preview

Can Athletic Club close the gap on the European places?

Ernesto Valverde’s side are not in good form right now, yielding just a solitary point from their last four outings.

On Sunday night, Athletic thought they’d snatched a point against Barcelona, only for their last-gasp equaliser to be disallowed by VAR for handball.

So, having not won since 11 February, Athletic are down in ninth, but know a victory here would see them leapfrog Rayo and Osasuna, even if only temporarily.

Real Valladolid meanwhile kick off 14th, albeit a mere two points clear of the relegation zone.

Last weekend, Blanquivioletas were held to a 1-1 draw by bottom of the table Elche, taking a fourth minute lead through Cyle Larin, only to then concede in the 96th minute.

Roque Mesa and then Martin Hongla were both sent off in the 11th minute of injury time, meaning the pair will be suspended this week.

At home, Pacheta’s team are unbeaten in three, drawing with Osasuna and beating both Valencia and Espanyol in this period.

So, will Estadio José Zorrilla continue to be a fortress?
