Spain: La Liga (31rst matchday)
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
This is the match of two neighbors of the tournament bracket and two challengers for entering the Europa League zone. Villarreal and Ath Bilbao have approximately the equal results this season and take the 5th and 6th line respectively. What concerns their performance, Ath Bilbao demonstrated better results during the second round while at the first round Villarreal was better.
“The yellow submarine” takes the 5th line at the tournament bracket and won’t probably be able to catch the Champions league zone. But the team of Francisco Escribá will be able to qualify to the Europa League. Now the team has the most successful defense that is the trade mark of this club. But it should be noted that the results of the club had fallen down significantly during the second round and this fact made it impossible for the team to participate at the CL next season. The problem is the injury of the main goalkeeper Asenjo who is substituted by Fernandes.
Ath Bilbao traditionally improves its results during the second round. It has managed to reach the 8th line and it has only 1 point lag from Villarreal. The game level is very good and the football team has 4 winnings out of 5 last rounds of the championship. The problem for Ath Bilbao would be the departure of Valverde when the season will come to its end. But these are future problems and now the teams are facing interesting and amazing fight for the place at the Europe League.
Villarreal has very weak statistics in matches against Ath Bilbao and out of 4 last matches the football club won three times and gained one draw. Bearing in mind the perfect physical form of Ath Bilbao it is doubtful that the hosts can expect any success.
