ATHLETIC BILBAO VS SEVILLA PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
After a good start at the beginning of the season when drawing with Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and defeating Villarreal, but Athletic Bilbao has shown a slow decline in recent times. The proof is that the San Mames home team has experienced 7 consecutive rounds recently, only drawing and losing, the most recent is a goalless draw against Getafe, even losing to Cadiz at home. With that poor streak, Athletic Bilbao has now dropped to 9th place with 21 points after 16 matches.
Sevilla has just disappointed when losing to Salzburg in the last match of the Champions League group stage, thereby unable to win tickets to the 1-8 round but had to play at the Europa League playground. However, at Laliga, coach Julen Lopetegui’s army is in a quite stable form when in the last 8 matches they have won 5, drawn 2 and lost only 1-2 during the trip to the Bernabeu. Currently, Sevilla is ranked 2nd and if they spend 3 points on this trip, they will narrow the gap with Real Madrid to 5 points.
In addition to owning the 2nd best record at the moment, the efficiency of Sevilla is also helping them to own the 2nd highest win rate at this time, only after Rayo Vallecano. Meanwhile, the recent bad form has made Athletic Bilbao lose the last 3/4 matches, including two draws against weak opponents Levante and Getafe, 1 loss to Cadiz at home.
Select: Sevilla FT.
Against strong opponents, Athletic Bilbao proved to be quite effective on the defensive front, as evidenced by the encounters against Barcelona, Atletico Madrid or Real Madrid, they all received no more than 1 goal conceded, of which each kept a clean sheet in front of the defending champion. Currently, these two teams are receiving the least number of goals conceded with 11 goals.
Select: Under 2 FT.
Currently, Sevilla is ranked 2nd and only behind Real Madrid, they are 10 points ahead of this opponent and have played less than 1 match, which shows that the strength of the two teams is not small. Athletic Bilbao’s recent home form is also very bad when the last 2 matches they only drew Granada and lost to Cadiz, these are all teams at the bottom of the table. Therefore, the ability of the away team to take 3 points is very possible.
Select: Sevilla FT.
Failure at the Champions League playground makes Sevilla focus more on the domestic front and now they are doing a very good job in this playground when they are with Real Madrid occupying the top two positions on the table. In the last match between the two teams, the fact that Athletic Bilbao only drew Granada was clearly a much worse result than Sevilla’s victory over Villarreal. Therefore, the belief in a victory for Sevilla is very well-founded.
