Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla Prediction and Betting Preview 09 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-2
Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla PredictionHaving established themselves as Europa League experts, Sevilla have risen the bar a little higher this season, and are gunning for a Champions League place finish. Being utterly ruthless so far, they are strong favorites to finish within the top-four mix.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 35
Kick-off:
Venue: Estadio San Mamés (Bilbao)
With a staggering 60 points from 24 games, Sevilla are clearly one of the better sides in the La Liga this term. In fact, Los Palanganas are just three points adrift third-placed Atletico Madrid and a win here could see them move level on points with Atleti.

However, occupying the final Champions League slot on the standings, Los Palanganas will be wary of losing form to keep a safe distance from the chasing pack behind them. With high-flying Villarreal lurking in fifth place, Sevilla cannot afford any slip-ups if they are to remain in CL reckoning.

Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao have been enjoying a pretty decent campaign of their own. Nonetheless, finishing outside of the European places may ensure their rather impressive season counts for nothing. As such, they will be putting in extra effort to see to it that they break into top-seven soon enough.

Knowing fully well that a win here, with results elsewhere going their way, will see them climb into seventh, Bilbao will be putting their best foot forward here. Expect an exciting game between two these top sides come kick-off.

Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla Team News

Head coach Gaizka Garitano will be really impressed with the way he has had his side playing in recent weeks. Having hit top-gear since the league restart, ATH will look to keep up the momentum to ensure they make it into Europe at the end of the season.

Playing host to table-toppers Real Madrid on the last matchday, Bilbao could not have been presented with a tougher nut to crack. Headed into the game as huge underdogs, ATH set out to make a statement against Zidane’s beasts.

Pressing tightly at the back, the hosts ensured Madrid struggled to find any pocket of space to exploit behind the defense. With the clock winding down, Los Blancos were fortunately awarded a penalty in the 73rd minute, Ramos stepping up to send his side to a narrow 1-0 victory.

Still pressing for a ticket to next season’s edition of the Champions League, Sevilla were tasked with the challenge of dispatching league strugglers Eibar. Always considered favorites for the win, Sevilla’s Ocampos got on the scoresheet inside 56 minutes to clinch maximum points for his side.

For this fixture, we cannot exactly separate these two sides. Both teams are well-matched and will be driven by their determination to make it into their respective European tiers. With Bilbao seeking for a top-seven finish, Sevilla are bent on securing Champions League football.

Since the league restart, ATH have turned a corner, admitting defeat just twice from their previous nine league games – those losses coming against title-chasing Real Madrid and Barcelona. They have garnered a massive 9 wins from their 17 home games this season.

As outstanding as Garitano’s men have been, the same can be said for visiting Sevilla. Los Palanganas are on an eleven-game unbeaten run, winning five games in that time.

Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla Predictions

Both sides are heading into this game in healthy form. Bilbao have turned the San Memes stadium into something of a fortress this term and will be looking to use the home-factor to their advantage. However, given they will be coming up against a stronger opposition in Sevilla, Bilbao are very likely to struggle here.

Still cannot be ruled out completely, Garitano’s charges will fancy their chances of grabbing a positive result here to move ever closer to Europa League football. As such, a double chance backing Sevilla for the win seems the safest punt.
