Villarreal vs Athletic Club match preview

A key clash in the race for European places at El Madrigal.

Of the two, Villarreal are seven points and three places better off, but need to win to keep their fading Champions League dreams alive.

El Submarino Amarillo have won seven of last 11 La Liga fixtures, but were held to a 1-1 draw by bottom three dwellers Valencia last time out.

Nicolas Jackson broke the deadlock at Mestalla, only for los Che to equalise soon after, ensuring the Derbi de la Comunitat ended all square.

This leaves Quique Setién’s side fifth, seven points below Real Sociedad, needing to end the season with a winning run to have any chance of catching la Real.

Athletic Club Bilbao meantime are not fussy about what UEFA competition they enter, having not featured in Europe since 2017/18, they’ll take whatever they can get.

The Lions kick off in eighth, below Girona on head-to-head, with their current position not enough to end their European exile.

Ernesto Valverde’s side have lost form at just the wrong time, currently winless in three, drawing in Mallorca and losing at home to both Sevilla and Betis during this period.

Athletic Club did win 1-0 when Villarreal visited San Mamés in October, so which way will this one at Estadio de la Cerámica go?
