Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 16
Kick-off:
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarín (Sevilla)

They have won their last two league fixtures, one of which was against the might of Valencia on away soil.

The visitors, on the other hand, have been enjoying a much better season than their opponents, occupying fifth position on the log, having garnered 26 points after 15 games.

The home side will be looking to stretch their winning streak to three when they welcome Los Leones to the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday, aiming to pull off an unlikely win against Bilbao.

Betis v Athletic Bilbao Team News

Last time out in the league, Gaizka Garitano’s men were on the road against newly-promoted Mallorca and were expected to seal maximum points in the game. Betis were all psyched up heading into the game, firing themselves ahead just inside 7 minutes.

They added a two-goal cushion in the 33rd minute and looked set for a very important win that could leave them with back-to-back victories for the first time since May. The goals dried up for the visitors here on out, as they remained on the backfoot for the rest of the game.

Mallorca hit one back later in the second half but it was a case of too little, too late for the home side as they were condemned to defeat in front of the home support.

Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao recorded a routine 2-0 win over Granada the previous game week and did not even have to break a sweat to post the three points on the board. Both goals came on either side of both halves.

Taking a look at h2h encounters between these two sides, Bilbao have easily been the more dominant side, emerging victorious in eight of their previous nine clashes against this foe. Also, they have recorded no less than two goals in eight of their last eleven fixtures.

In fact, since 2012, there have been only one defeat of note for Garitano’s men against Real Betis, affirming how feisty the visitors have been against Los Verdiblancos over the last couple of years.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Betis: William Carvalho, Juanmi, Sidnei, Aissa Mandi.

Athletic Bilbao: Aritz Aduriz, Iker Muniain, Raúl García.

Betis vs Ath Bilbao Predictions

It is also worth noting that the visitors are on a four-game winning streak at the moment, scoring twice or more in each of these games. They are also unbeaten in 18 of their previous 21 games across all competitions and have admitted defeat just twice on the road this season.

Real Betis do have the home advantage but getting one over this Bilbao team may prove rather tricky for a side that have been far from consistent this season. They have registered goals in 12 of their last 15 fixtures across all competition and in 21 of their previous 22 at home.
