Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview

Sevilla host Athletic Bilbao for their Matchday 19 clash on Friday evening in good spirits after going on holidays with a two-match winning streak behind them, where they made their way past Bergantiños (0-1) in Copa del Rey and beat Mallorca (0-2) to important La Liga points.

Sevillistas thus ended a streak of three games without a win and the return to the winning ways comes off very important for their confidence, especially at the back as they kept clean sheets on both occasions. Julen Lopetegui will now hope for more of the same and we’ll surely see his men very motivated to deliver, sitting just five points behind pace-setters Barcelona.

Athletic Bilbao have, on the other hand, been just as happy with a goalless draw snatched at Real Madrid and we’ve seen them show off as a tough side to score against despite an unpredictable run. They shared the spoils with Eibar (0-0) beforehand and beat Tercera Division rivals Intercity (0-3) to a 2nd Round ticket in Copa del Rey.

Los Leones have seen just one loss in five away games since early November and building on such records will be crucial if they’re to break into the top 6. However, they hardly have boasting rights at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium and we don’t really see them getting them on the day either.

We will thus back Sevilla to secure all three points and start the year off on the right foot, hoping they can turn a narrow contest their way as we go for a Home win to Nil at 31/20 with BetVictor as the best approach to the fixture at this point.

We do feel Athletic Bilbao will show what they’re made of and we hope to see a solid challenge from the visitors, which should mean few goals on Friday. With that in mind, we’re going for Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 3/4 with VirginBet.
