Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Athletic Bilbao fell to a fourth defeat in the last five matches as they lost 3-2 against Valencia in their latest La Liga 2017-18 game. Simone Zaza and Dani Parejo provided early goals for Valencia, but Aduriz did pulled one back for Athletic Bilbao in the second half. Valencia almost quickly re-established the two-goal advantage through Rodrigo, while Raul Garcia’s 76th minute goal only became a consolation. Sevilla kept in the winning run going with a 2-0 win over Malaga. After a goalless first half, Sevilla scored twice in the space of two minutes through Ever Banega and Luis Muriel.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla have seen the home team become successful in five out of the recent six games, but Sevilla have been the dominant name in this fixture with four wins in this period. Sevilla have been quite imperious over the last few weeks and this is down to a defence that simply does not seem to be in a mood to concede. I would back a victory for Sevilla due to their excellent recent form. Athletic Bilbao may be struggling for results, but the club has scored in four out of their recent five matches. Even though Sevilla have kept a remarkable four clean seats in the last five games, this fixture has seen plenty of goals at both ends of the pitch. I would surprisingly go with both teams to score.

Athletic Bilbao Preview

Athletic Bilbao’s season is now in a precarious position with the team fast sliding down the table. The club came into the campaign with expectations of another season in which they would capture European football. However, it appears that the distraction of the Europa League may have played into the season in a negative way, as Athletic Bilbao have lost four out of their last five matches. Confidence is low within the team. Home form was a crucial factor behind the success last season, and Bilbao have lost both their recent matches at the San Mames. Even then, the form of Aduriz gives hope to the team with the striker scoring four goals so far.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Iker Undabarrene (cruciate ligament), Oscar De Marcos (ankle), and Muniain (cruciate ligament) are the players unavailable for Athletic Bilbao.

Sevilla Preview

Sevilla have been one of the top teams in the La Liga 2017-18 season, as the club were able to put behind a mediocre start to the campaign with some impressive set of results of late. Sevilla began the campaign with a draw against Espanyol and struggled to get past Getafe in the second match. Yet, recent years have seen Eduardo Berizzo’s team in outstanding form and the club are only behind Barcelona in the La Liga table. The string of victories in recent times have been characterised by a strong defensive performance which have not given opponents much of a chance in the game.

Sevilla Team News

Daniel Carrico (thigh) and Nicolas Pareja (hip) are the players unavailable for Sevilla.
