Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao

What was once a clash of the titans looks more like a relegation six pointer as Valencia welcome Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.

Los Che and Los Leones are 14th and 16th respectively after underwhelming starts, and Argentine Coaches Mauricio Pellegrino and Marcelo Bielsa are feeling the heat ahead of this Mestalla encounter.

“It's not Pellegrino's fault, it's ours,” insists Valencia striker Jonas. “Athletic possess a lot of quality and are going through a tough time like us.”

Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz left Valencia in the summer but admits he won't hold back if he scores against them.

“Yes I will celebrate, although with my teammates and always with respect to Mestalla.”

Kick off: Saturday October 20, 7.00 (BST)
