Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla
Date: 14th October 2017
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: San Mames Barria.
Athletic Bilbao will host Sevilla in one of the most interesting fixtures of the Matchday No 8 in Primera Division on Saturday afternoon at San Mames Barria.
Los Leones will be desperate to get their campaign back on track, but it will honestly be a mountain to climb for them against such a strong opposition.
Jose Angel Ziganda lost all credits after a run of six consecutive matches without a victory in all competitions.
Bilbao lost as many as four during the process proving out to be super vulnerable at the back after allowing three goals in each of their last two league outings with Malaga and Valencia.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other side, continued their fine spell of form with a harder-than-expected home win over Malaga before the international break.
They hold the sky-high second position after seven opening rounds in Primera and they are off to a strong start to their Champions League campaign as well winning four points from encounters with Liverpool and Maribor.
Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla: Head to head
Sevilla lead the head to head tie by nine wins ahead of their 47th encounter with Athletic, but the team from Andalusia lost in each of their last two visits to the Basque County (3-1 each).
Four of the previous five H2H meetings between the two sides saw both teams on target (all but the last one which saw a narrow 1-0 victory for Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan).
Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla: Prediction
Luis Muriel finally managed to find the back of the net in the last week’s win over Malaga and he should have plenty of room to deliver past the struggling defense of Athletic’s.
We’ll definitely give advantage to the visiting side here as we see the value in backing them not to lose the match at the odds of 3/5.
