Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla Match Preview

Athletic Bilbao missed their chance to level with Real Sociedad in the league table for the hunt of Europa League qualifiers. Sevilla will aim to keep their Champions League spot intact in the table and probably will be closer to achieving it.

Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla Match preview

Athletic Bilbao had two losses within their last nine league fixtures against Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively. They will host after a 0-1 loss on the road against the table leaders, Real Madrid, in their last match.

They have a healthy form at home post the lockdown but apart from the draw with Atletico Madrid, both their recent unbeaten game at home have come against bottom-part teams. The host has 9 wins in their 17 home matches in the league so far this season.

Sevilla is unbeaten in their last 11 fixtures in the campaign with five wins in it. They are on a double win in the schedule, following a 1-0 win at home against Eibar in their previous league match. Four of their recent five wins have seen them keep a clean sheet in the game.

The visitor has lost only 4 of their 17 away fixtures in the league, and their last tour in the contest had ended in a 0-3 win against Leganes. Unbeaten in their last five trips on the road; Los Palanganas have a slight edge over the host in the encounter.

Both teams have scored in two of the last five fixtures.

The host is unbeaten at home in four of the last five matches.

Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla Prediction

Athletic Bilbao cannot be taken lightly when playing at home, despite their recent failures.

The host enjoys the home ground advantage, but when playing against a stronger contingent from the top part of the league table, their chances slim down gradually in the clash.

Besides, Sevilla is in a comfortable form on the road and they need all three points to keep up in their race for the Champions League spot for the next season.

Their unbeaten streak and lead in the points table will probably aid them to return home with at least a draw.

The double chance favoring Sevilla with 1.40 odds will be the best bet in the game for the punters. The tip for over 1.5 goals at 1.50 odds will also come in handy for the ninety minutes.
