Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Sevilla came up with a crucial 1-0 win over Malaga to get back into the top five places of the La Liga. Joaquin Correa scored the only goal of the game after 15 minutes, as Sevilla picked up a second consecutive away win. Athletic Bilbao managed a respectable 1-1 draw with Valencia at home. Geoffrey Kondogbia provided Valencia with a goal after 23 minutes. Marcelino’s team were unable to hold on for a victory, as Bilbao came back into the game with Oscar De Marcos scoring in the 49th minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The last five games between Bilbao and Sevilla have only produced wins for the home team. Athletic Bilbao also head into the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan hoping to avoid a fifth consecutive defeat. Bilbao last returned home with something from their trip to this ground in 2013, when they managed a 1-1 draw. Sevilla’s home form may not be much to shout about, but I would back a win for Sevilla.

Sevilla’s last game at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan saw them concede five goals. Vincenzo Montella will be keen to see his team go through such a home thrashing once again. Bilbao have been unable to score in the last three visits to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. I would choose a clean sheet for Sevilla at an attractive price.

Sevilla win – 3/4

Sevilla clean sheet – 6/4

Sevilla Preview

The Sevilla team can look forward to a run of back-to-back home matches with confidence, as the team have been able to get back into the fifth place. Sevilla’s momentum over the last few weeks gives them a great opportunity to end the threat from Villarreal, who have been rather poor in recent weeks. The advantage over the Yellow Submarines may be a slender one-point, but it would not be surprising to see Vincenzo Montella’s team stretch this gap over the next few weeks. This momentum is also crucial for the club’s Champions League encounter with Manchester United in the middle of March. Wissam Ben Yedder and Pablo Sarabia top the scoring charts at the club with six goals each.

 

Sevilla Team News

Jesus Navas (calf), Lionel Carole (muscle), Sebastien Corchia (groin) are the names available for injury.

 

Athletic Bilbao Preview

Athletic Bilbao’s lack of wins has put the club on the fringes of the top 10. Even though Bilbao will be able to get into the top 10 with a strong run of results in the last 12 games, the form shown by the likes of Getafe and Real Betis has been substantially better. Bilbao have taken the same number of points as Las Palmas in the last six matches – and this says a lot about the club’s lack of momentum. However, the last two games have witnessed a return of four points and Cuco Ziganda will be to build on this platform. Aduriz may be the club’s top scorer, but he has been stuck on eight goals for the last few weeks.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Muniain returns back to training after a cruciate ligament injury, but Iker Undabarrene (cruciate ligament), Mikel Rico (thigh), and Mikel Balenziaga (thigh) remain on the sidelines for Cuco Ziganda’s men.
