10th placed Celta Vigo seem to have set their sights on winning the Europa league and they may field a weakened team again in this fixture.

Celta Vigo play against Manchester United in the Europa League on Thursday and it is expected that they will field a below-par team in this game or at the very least, rest their most important players.

They are currently ranked 10th in the La Liga table with 44 points from 32 games.

They have lost 3 of their last 4 league games and  have been dismal at home recently  losing their last 2 La Liga home games and scoring 0 goals in the process.

Athletic Bilbao are currently 7th in the league standing, just 2 points behind 6th placed Real Sociedad with one game in hand.

They have 56 points from 33 games.

Away from home, they have done very well recently.  They have 3 wins from their last 4 away matches and have scored at least 1 goal in their last 4 away games.

If they win this game, it will take them ahead of Real Sociedad by 1 point, and this is a motivating factor for them, because 6th position is the last available Europa League spot.
