Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla FC Football Prediction of the Day
Both teams want to maintain their chances of qualifying before the second leg.
State of form
In big trouble since the beginning of the season, Bilbao occupies a worrying 17th place in La Liga with 2 units ahead of the relegation zone. It is important, however, to mention the slight amount of shape the team has been showing for some time. Indeed, the Basques have lost none of their last 4 league games (2 wins and 2 draws). Last Monday, they won on the grass of Celta Vigo (2-1). Athletic easily disposed of Huesca in the previous round (4-0 wins at home and away).
Before competing in the knockout stage of the King’s Cup, Sevilla hardly dominated the modest formation of Villanovense (0-0 away and 1-0 win at home). 3rd of La Liga, the Andalusians make good impression so far but have still conceded 4 draws in the last 5 days, for 1 win. Last weekend, they were held in check, at home, by Atletico Madrid (1-1).
