2019-20 Spanish LaLiga

Selected matches, round 37
Leganes will be aiming to ignite a final push for Spanish LaLiga survival when they take on Athletic Bilbao at San Mames Stadium on Thursday evening. 
The Cucumber Growers head into the penultimate round of fixtures in 18th place on the log standings and four points from safety. Realistically, Javier Aguirre's men would have to win both of their last two fixtures to stand any chance of avoiding relegation, but they arguably have the toughest run-in with a home game against Real Madrid to follow their trip to Bilbao.

Leganes are currently on a three-game unbeaten run, but even their most loyal of supporters would be doubtful of their chances of extending that run to five. 
Bilbao will be hoping to climb as high as sixth with victory on home soil before traveling to Granda on the final day of the 2019/20 season. Athletic Club beat Levante 2-1 in their most recent encounter. 
When the two teams met in LaLiga earlier this season, the game ended in a 1-1 draw following goals from Raul Garcia and Oscar Rodriguez.
