Sevilla Prediction – Can Sevilla draw level with Real Madrid?

3rd placed Sevilla have a great chance to draw level on points with 2nd placed Real Madrid on Friday night when they play host to Athletic Bilbao at their Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, and having suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches, the home side look in good shape ahead of this important encounter.

That rare loss came in the shape of a surprising 2-1 defeat at home to Villarreal last time out on home turf in La Liga, so Sevilla will be keen to set the record straight on Friday night no doubt, as they look to consolidate their top four spot in the Spanish top flight.

Sevilla possess a reasonable looking home record of 4-2-2 10/7 which includes just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches at home and also includes wins against Real Sociedad, Levante, Getafe and Leganes.

Having also posted a 2-0 home win against Friday night’s opponent, Athletic Bilbao, in their previous clash at home back in May of last year, Sevilla will be in confident mood ahead of this encounter.

Athletic Bilbao Prediction – Can Athletic Bilbao push Sevilla?

The visitors bring a more modest set of recent results into this Friday night clash against Sevilla as they’ve drawn with both Eibar and Real Madrid in 0-0 stalemates along with having suffered a 3-2 defeat away at Real Betis.

Athletic Bilbao occupy 7th place though in La Liga and they usually find themselves in the mix for a top six finish each season in La Liga and their cause has been helped in recent weeks with wins against Espanyol, Levante, Osasuna and Granada.

However, it should be noted that 3 of these 4 wins were recorded on home turf at their San Mamés Barria ground where they’ve lost just once throughout this La Liga campaign to date amidst a solid record that stands at 6-2-1 13/3.

The visitors’ away record though stands at a more modest looking 1-5-3 6/9 and includes just the one win at Osasuna, while the bigger picture shows that Bilbao have managed just 1 win out of their last 11 away matches in La Liga.


Key-Facts – Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao

  • Sevilla have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches overall in La Liga
  • Bilbao have managed just 1 win out of their last 11 away matches in La Liga
  • Sevilla beat Athletic Bilbao 2-0 in the last meeting at home in La Liga


Betting Tips Verdict

Sevilla therefore look to have the edge over their opponents here.
