Not many would have predicted these two teams to feature so prominently in La Liga and it will be interesting to see which side can maintain a lofty status for longest and perhaps stay in the European race for the remainder of the season.
Athletic Bilbao began the season with back-to-back victories at Real Valladolid and at home to Osasuna before eventually losing 3-21 against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu prior to the international break. Former Valencia manager Valverde was impressed by some of the club’s rising stars who figured in the 4-0 friendly victory over Amorebieta but is unlikely to make unforced changes to the side that has started the season so brightly.
Ibai Gomez picked up a knock against Real Madrid and missed the games against Amorebieta but it’s hoped he’ll be fit to face Celta on Monday night.
The visitors are unbeaten in three starts this season but have been a little shaky in amassing five points. They let slip a two-goal lead to draw the opening game at home to Espanyol before surprising many pundits when travelling to Real Betis to register a 2-1 victory a week later. Celta arrive on the back of another home draw when they once again conceded lead before finishing 1-1 against Granada.
This is not a fixture with a habit for high scoring encounters, three of the last six meeting have ended 1-1 while the others were won by the only goal of the game.
