Looking to continue climbing positions

The eighteenth date of LaLiga brings us an even duel when Betis faces Athletic, both teams are having a great season with the locals in the UEFA Europa League places and the visitors in the mid-table, however, this does not mean they can be confident because a defeat or a victory could strip them of the precious place they occupy at the moment.
