Villarreal vs. Athletic Bilbao
This was supposed to be a duel that will shape race for the Europa League but both teams totally underperformed and instead we have clash between two teams positioned around the drop zone boundary, where Villarreal is next-to-last having five points fewer than Athletico. The visiting team finally managed to win two times in a row in the league but they were eliminated from the Copa del Rey, just like Villarreal, which didn’t win for a long time. Villarreal triumphed in Bilbao 3-0 in the first part of season.
Fact that they were eliminated this week...
