Ath Bilbao vs Sevilla Prediction & Tips
They are probably two of the most concrete and least spectacular teams in Spanish football (especially Athletic Bilbao, in reality, as per the tradition of Basque football), but certainly it cannot be said that Thursday evening will not be an expected and intense match . Yes, because on the other side there is also a Sevilla that cannot afford missteps in order not to jeopardize a place in the Champions League, which for the Andalusian club is “vital” in terms of prestige and also economic. Athletic, on the other hand, will hardly be able to return to the European tour, but do you think the Basques will leave something unturned?
Bilbao are currently eighth, five points behind Getafe sixth (who would now finish the championship qualifying for the Europa League preliminaries).
Sevilla, on the other hand, are fourth (therefore right now in the Champions League), with six points ahead of Villarreal fifth.
The Andalusians are also just two points behind third place, represented by Atletico Madrid del Cholo Simeone.
Sevilla scored forty-nine goals in thirty-four games, but also conceded thirty-three (therefore almost one per game).
The defense of Athletic is really tough: twenty-nine goals on the passive side (only Real and Atletico Madrid did better).
As said, they are not particularly spectacular teams, but in the last nine the Basques have not managed to score only against Barcelona and Real Madrid. On the other hand, Sevilla scored 31 games out of thirty-four in this league (only Barcelona twice and Real Madrid managed to keep the clean sheet once).
