Athletic Bilbao forward Oihan Sancet: We know we need Villarreal points

Athletic Bilbao forward Oihan Sancet says they face Villarreal determined to win.

Athletic will meet Villarreal on the back of the Yellow Submarine’s Champions League defeat of Bayern Munich.

The race for Europe is coming to a close and with just eight LaLiga Santander fixtures left, Athletic are one point behind Villarreal in seventh place, while Real Sociedad are six points ahead in sixth place.

“We know this is an important match,” Sancet said at a press conference in Lezama on Wednesday morning.

“There’s a lot at stake because if we win, we’ll go above them into seventh place. We’re going to give it everything to get those three points. A win would be a big boost towards achieving our objectives for the season, which is to qualify for Europe and finish as high up the table as possible.”

Since Marcelino’s arrival, Sancet has moved into a more advanced position on the pitch, playing more as a striker instead of his previous role as an attacking midfielder.

“I’m happy and comfortable,” Oihan said of his change of position. “I feel good, I think things are going well and we’re playing good football. It’s an honour to have received so much support from the fans and it definitely helps a lot.

“Everyday I’m working hard to improve so I can do great things at this club.”
