Fifth placed Athletic Bilbao host relegation threatened Real Valladolid in Monday evening’s La Liga fixture…
The home side are enjoying an excellent season, and have a genuine chance of finishing in the Champions League spots. They have won four of their past six league matches, whereas Valladolid have only picked up one victory in that same time.
Bilbao will be without Mikel San Jose and Mikel Rico, while Markel Susaeta is suspended and prodigal young striker Iker Muniain is classed as doubtful.
The visitors have Alvaro Rubio suspended, but Alcatraz is the only other confirmed absentee. If Bilbao win, they will climb ahead of Villarreal into the top four, while a win would similarly see Valladolid climb out of the relegation places.
