Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction and Betting Preview 03 Jan 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-1
Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao PredictionHead coach Julen Lopetegui has been the mastermind of this scintillating Sevilla side we have been enjoying so far this season. Sitting pretty in third-place on the standings, Los Nervionenses have exceeded pre-season expectations, much to the amazement of fans and the media alike.

Three points clear of Real Sociedad in fifth place, there is a certain good-feel radiating around the club, that they can forge ahead to clinch a Champions League place finish come the end of the season.
Athletic Bilbao have not put a single foot wrong all season, sitting seventh on the log having garnered 28 points from a possible 54. However, their struggles on the road this season have been laid bare for everyone to see.

The home side will be looking to exploit this to the core in a bid to return to winning ways in front of the home support.

Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Team News

Surprisingly, the Spanish La Liga has been pretty competitive this time around, relative to previous seasons. In recent years, we have seen Barcelona race to the league title with little or no competition from other teams within the cluster.

However, looking at the league table this season, other teams have stepped up. The standings appear pretty much abysmal. Serial La Liga champions Barcelona are just two points clear of Real Madrid in second place, with Sevilla four points behind the Blaugrana.

Sevilla were on song on the last match-day, sending newly-promoted Mallorca to the cleaners even on the road. The visitors were in complete control of the game from start to finish and got two well-taken goals for their efforts.

That win saw them keep up with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid – both of whom are setting the pace at the top of the table.

Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, also celebrated success last time out against the mighty Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu. Despite all odds highly stacked against them, Les Leones showed resilience against Los Blancos to hold them to a draw.

The travelling supporters were in fine voice all through the game, as they witnessed their side draw Madrid blank. Though on the back foot for large parts of the match, Zinedine Zidane’s men struggled to find a way past Unai Simon in the Bilbao goal.

For this fixture, the home side have to be considered favouritesfor the win. Apart from playing the game in the comforts of their home, they head into the game spotting a much better record than their opposition.

Bilbao are winless in 17 of their previous 20 away fixtures across all competitions, and so are they in their last three league games on the trot. They have been so lackluster in front of goal this season, with just two away wins two their name all season.

The hosts, in sharp contrast, has tasted success in seven of their preceding ten games, and were also unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 matches. At home, they have lost just twice in their prior fifteen appearances.
