Team News

Celta Vigo
Athletic Club
  • Having thought he would be maybe playing his last game for the club, Jonathan Bamba was given 86 minutes against Atletico in a hard fought 1-0 defeat.
  • Carles Perez is out for this one and could be replaced by Hugo Alvarez.
  • Mihailo Ristic will be waiting until the end of the season as he continues his struggle with injury.
  • Yuri Berchiche is suspended for this one with Inigo Lekue likely standing in. Yeray and Aitor Paredes are back and available.
  • Dani Vivian returned last week and could pair with Paredes to ease Ernesto Valverde's defensive concerns.
  • Whilst Oihan Sancet is out with a hamstring injury, Iker Muniain should fill in as he is given the privilege of seeing out his lengthy Athletic Club career in the starting eleven.

Prediction

  • Celta Vigo welcome Athletic Club to Catalonia on Wednesday evening in the hopes of securing their safety in the league with a heroic victory over this year's Copa del Rey winners. The reverse fixture back in November ended 4-3 to Ernesto Valverde's men - however they conceded the most goals to Celta in that match than any other side this season.
  • Athletic Club could be accused of flagging recently, only picking up one victory in their last five - only a lone victory since their Copa del Rey winning triumph over Mallorca. Having to save their fans disappointment this weekend through a late Asier Villalibre equaliser, they will be looking to make a bold statement of intent on the road as they are now almost guaranteed to miss out on UCL football next season.
  • Celta should fight well, as they have all season, but a Bilbao victory is likely tomorrow night.
