La Liga Monday

Monday's La Liga offering on Sky Sports Xtra features top-four rivals Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao.

Last Updated: 18/03/14 at 08:20

Bilbao - who drew 1-1 with Valencia last time out - are in the box seat to secure fourth place in La Liga and with a spot in the Champions League qualifications stage next season.

They are seven points clear of Villarreal and, seemingly, looking forward to playing with Europe's best next season.

However, Villarreal, who suffered a 2-0 reverse against Granada in their last match, can strike a decisive blow to Bilbao's advantage, at the same time as undermining their confidence, to intensify the fight for fourth place.

Villarreal will be hoping to make the most of their home advantage on Monday night.

So you can see whether they can turn over their top-four rivals from 8.55pm on our online channel on Monday evening.

There will be plenty of treats for you to enjoy before and after that clash, too, including highlights of Real Madrid and Barcelona's weekend encounters.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
