ATH vs RVL: Athletic Bilbao have recovered from a dismal season and are now currently in the 7th spot in the league table. The team is a perennial mid-table side who has also qualified for the UEFA Champions League from time to time. They have some really good players in the roster, and with consistency back in their arsenal, the team is expected to do better in these remaining 7 games.
Meanwhile, Rayo Vallecano are in the 19th spot and are in the relegation zone. They have awful throughout the season, but maybe will be looking to get out of this spot. There are limited chances of that happening, but two-three wins here and there might just help them get those much-needed points in order to maintain their classification in the La Liga.
