Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction, Tips & Match Preview

Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao
Spain La Liga
Date: Monday, 3 May 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Sevilla will have a nice opportunity to keep their superb form going on Monday evening when they host mid-table Athletic Bilbao in the 34th round of the competition at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

The Rojiblancos took advantage of some shocking slip-up from the top three sides in La Liga to enter the battle for title. They won seven and drew one of the last eight league matches and are now just three points shy of Atletico Madrid at the top of the standings.

Both Real Madrid and Barcelona are also above them, but the mere fact they are so close to the top is worth praise.

The Basques do not have much but pride to play for in the remaining five outings, but the lack of proper motivation did not prevent them from claiming a massive Atletico Madrid scalp last weekend.

Can they hurt another title hopeful this time around?

Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Head-to-head

  • Sevilla have been the more successful side historically. They won 26, drew 12, and lost 17 of 55 matches against Los Leones.
  • Nonetheless, Athletic Bilbao celebrated a 2-1 victory when they played Rojiblancos in the first half of the season, back in late-October last year.
  • Los Leones have a dreadful record in matches at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan where they won only 3 of the last 27 outings against Sevilla.

Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction

Athletic Bilbao were in action last Wednesday when they only drew 2-2 at home to Real Valladolid. The match revealed the team’s defensive holes once again as Marcelino’s troops shipped two easy goals within a 15-minute span in the second half.

The Basques have generally struggled to perform on travels in this term of La Liga. They won only 2 of 16 away matches so far in the season.

Given Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan is one of the toughest fortresses to conquer in Spain, we are not quite optimistic regarding Bilbao’s chances for success in Andalusia.

Rojiblancos won 12, drew 1, and lost just 3 of 16 league fixtures on the home patch this season. They’ve shipped no more than 10 goals along the way.

The home win has to be a banker bet at the 1.57 odds. Since Bilbao scored just one goal in the last three away matches, we will also back Sevilla to keep a clean sheet at the 2.00 odds.
