The Galician hosts head into matchday 36 occupying 18th position in the table, while Los Leones are sitting in fifth place after collecting 61 points from 35 matches.

Celta Vigo suffered a third successive away defeat at the weekend despite putting in a determined display in their away encounter with fourth-placed Atletico Madrid.

Claudio Giraldez’s side kept Atletico at bay until the 84th minute when Rodrigo De Paul scored the winner to condemn Celta to their 17th league defeat of the season.

Despite failing to add to their 34-point tally, Celta still have a sizeable five-point cushion between thesemselves and Cadiz ahead of their final three matches against Athletic, Granada and Valencia.

After winning their last two home matches, Celta now have the opportunity to secure three successive home league wins for the first time since the 2020-21 campaign.

Since winning the Copa del Rey, Athletic have experienced an inconsistent run of league form, with their last five matches producing one win, three draws and one loss.

Los Leones managed to show great fight to salvage a 2-2 draw in Saturday’s home encounter with Osasuna through Inaki Williams’ 58th-minute effort and Asier Villalibre’s stoppage-time equaliser.

Although they rescued a point, Athletic’s Champions League hopes were all but ended by Atletico’s 1-0 victory over Celta, leaving the Basque side eight points adrift of the top four with three games left to play.

Athletic’s success has been built upon a foundation of strong defence which has conceded just 35 league goals in as many matches, with only champions Real Madrid having let in fewer this season.

Celta Vigo vs. Athletic Bilbao Head to head

In the previous 53 meetings between these two teams, Celta Vigo have claimed 13 victories while Athletic have won 24, and they have drawn in 16. Athletic have scored 74 goals and conceded 61 in the process.

Celta Vigo Team News

Mihailo Rostic missed the defeat to Atletico due to an ankle problem, and the left-back is unlikely to recover in time for the midweek contest.

Joseph Aidoo remains a long-term absentee for Celta Vigo, but Carles Perez and Williot Swedberg should be available after returning to training.
