Athletic Club Bilbao Coach Ernesto Valverde admits Friday night’s clash away to Villarreal is ‘crucial’ in the race for the European spots.
The clash at Estadio Ceramica see’s the fifth-placed Yellow Submarine host sixth-placed Athletic, who have won their last two league matches.
"We are all available, it is true that we completed a very busy week and we will see after the two victories,” Valverde explained to his pre-match press conference.
"It is an absolutely crucial match for both sides, whoever wins on Friday will take a huge step forward towards a European place.
“Villarreal are a big threat, they have an excellent counterattack – Roberto Soldado and Cedric Bakambu are both big threats, they have a settled starting eleven and their game revolves around the brilliant Bruno.”
A win would see Valverde’s men leapfrog Villarreal into fifth.
