Our match prediction:
A place in the Europa League quarter-finals will be at stake when Athletic Bilbao and Valencia face each other in the two-legged tie. A Spanish side will definitely make it to the next round, but it remains to be seen who will have a reason for celebration this time out. Athletic Bilbao have been in a fine form of late and they will be looking to extend their winning run to four matches in all competitions when they welcome Valencia their San Mames. Over the years the Lions have turned their stadium into a real fortress and considering that los Che have been far from impressive under Gary Neville in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, we would not be surprised if the visitors return home empty-handed. Valencia did crush Rapid Wien in the Europa League last 32, but they face an uphill task in the tie against Bilbao and we predict that los Che will experience all sorts of problems in the San Mames clash.
