Athletic Bilbao Prediction

Although Athletic Bilbao still remain in the lower reaches of La Liga, the hosts have produced some encouraging displays in recent times as they’ve picked up wins over Girona and Celta Vigo as well as picking up points with draws against Deportivo Alaves and Real Valladolid.

This improved sequence of results have at least lifted Athletic Bilbao out of the relegation zone but they still hover above the bottom three and level on points with third from bottom club Rayo Vallecano ahead of their clash with high-flying Sevilla.

The hosts have been hard to beat at home this season as their home record of 2-5-2 9/12 testifies, and they come into this encounter having put together a four match run without defeat on home turf (this includes three draws) and a win over Girona.

Athletic Bilbao have drawn the second most number of matches at home in La Liga this term.

Key-Facts – Athletic Bilbao v Sevilla

    • Athletic Bilbao have drawn the second most number of matches at home in La Liga this term (5)
    • Sevilla are unbeaten in their last 9 league matches
    • Sevilla have drawn their last 4 away matches on the trot

Sevilla Prediction

Sevilla have also been a hard unit to break down in recent weeks as the visitors are unbeaten in their last nine league matches overall which has contributed to their position of 3rd place in La Liga and just two points adrift of second placed Atletico Madrid.

There have been 4 wins and 5 draws within this nine-match sequence, while away from home, Sevilla have drawn their last four on the trot with stalemates at Real Sociedad, Deportivo Alaves, Valencia and Leganes within an overall away record of 3-4-2 18/12.

In addition, Sevilla have suffered just one defeat from their last seven matches on their travels which was a 4-2 loss at La Liga leaders, Barcelona, but otherwise, Sevilla have been pretty solid on the road this season.

Sevilla possess some key goal threats in the shape of midfielder Sarabia (6 goals) along with forwards Andre Silva (8 goals) and Ben Yedder (9 goals).

Betting Tips Verdict

There’s been a high number of draws involving both Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla but I feel the visitors carry the more serious threat; I’ll back Sevilla with the handicap here.
