Hola! Our live Liga offering this evening will come from the San Mames, as Athletic Club host Leganes

Lineups are pinned, both teams set to play their usual 4-2-3-1 formations. This is a match from the bottom of the table. Whoever wins this tonight can probably declare themselves safe from the drop. Athletic are 12 points clear in 15th, Leganes sit one point and place above the Basque hosts

Both sides will have been buoyed by the game just done, 18th placed Las Palmas going down 2-0 at home to Villarreal. Also today, Atletico Madrid beat Celta 3-0, while Espanyol won 2-1 against Real Sociedad.

I'll join you once again just before kick-off, in a little under 15 minutes

Teams are out, we've shaken hands - it's nearly time.

We're off!! 0-0 (1)

Seems oddly quiet at San Mames in these early knockings. Quite a few empty seats too... Actually, the sound's a technical problems, heard Sky's commentator even tell the director there are bad effects. Not too much happening on the pitch. 0-0 (4)

El Zhar decided to have a sit down protest after he was fouled and the ref played advantage. It's a pretty wet night in Bilbao. 0-0 (7)

Foul there on Susaeta and Athletic have a free kick on the right. Beñat is good with set-pieces. Outswinger is cleared though. 0-0 (8)
