Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions and Betting Tips
Sevilla have an outside chance of just snatching the LaLiga and as such, they would be keen on keeping by with the Madrid clubs and the Catalan giants as they go up against Athletic Bilbao on Monday.
The reverse match was quite a close game with the Basque club winning 2-1 for their first league victory against Sevilla since 2019. Would they manage to do the double against Lopetegui’s troops?
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Sevilla’s recent run has certainly put them in the discussion for the league title. Although they’re in 4th, only three points separate them from the summit currently occupies by Atletico Madrid. They picked up their 5th consecutive victory- their 7th win in their last eight games- against Granada last time out via a 2-1 win and with Real Madrid coming up next, they would certainly want to head to the capital with the same momentum.
It has been yet another disappointing domestic season for Athletic Club as they’re set to miss out on Europa for the 4th year running. Although seven points is a gap that can be closed down, it doesn’t help they there are just four games left in the campaign. It is also to be noted that they lost in two separate Copa Del Rey finals in the space of two weeks. However, the famous Super Cup victory against Barcelona would certainly put a smile on the Bilbao faithful’s faces. In their most recent game, they played out a 2-2 draw with struggling Real Valladolid.
