Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview
3rd placed Sevilla will welcome Athletic Bilbao to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for this Saturday morning La Liga clash. Can the hosts overcome their Basque visitors who have won just once in their 9 on the road this term? Read on for Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao betting tips and predictions.
Sevilla fell further behind in the title race before the winter break after a 1-1 draw at Osasuna and a surprise 1-2 home defeat against Villarreal, but did sign off for Christmas with a pleasing 2-0 victory over Mallorca at Son Moix, with the goals coming from Diego Carlos and Ever Banega.
That win put Sevilla in 3rd heading into this clash with Athletic Bilbao, 5 points behind leaders Barcelona and just 3 behind Real Madrid who are currently 2nd. With a crucial fixture upcoming against Los Blancos at the Bernabeu later this month, Los Palanganas will feel they are only a couple of results away from getting right back into contention, although qualification for the Champions League remains the main aim for Julen Lopetegui’s side this term.
November’s 1-2 victory against Osasuna at El Sadar remains Bilbao’s only success on the road this term (D5, L3), and they have failed to beat the likes of Mallorca, Celta Vigo and Leganes on their travels, all of whom are teams involved in the relegation battle this season.
