Celta Vigo will welcome Athletic Bilbao this Sunday evening from 19:45, UK Time, as the game is part of the 35th round of Spanish LaLiga.
Celta Vigo are not in their best form, struggling in the past few weeks. More exactly, they won only three points from the last five league games. The hosts are on the 11th position, with 44 points and a match in hand. Their attack did very well, scoring 49 times in 33 games, but the defense struggled, conceding 54 goals. Celta's home record is a decent one, with nine wins, one draw and six losses.
Athletic Bilbao have to give their best in order to remain on the 6th position. The visitors have 59 points and a 48-38 goal difference, the defense remaining their strongest point. The Basques have only one point above Real Sociedad, so it is going to be a very tight fight for the 6th spot. Bilbao failed to impress away from home, winning only 17 points after 16 trips. They won the revere fixture, 2-1 at home.
