Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Football Prediction for Today
Sevilla is a club with great tradition in Spain and this year is having a good season.
They are in 3rd place in La Liga, they went ahead in the Europa League and also in this Cup of the King they follow with ambition.
In the championship they have now lost some gas and already go to 3 the games without winning. This past weekend they lost 2-0 in Bilbao in a match where they were unable to play their usual football.
Daniel Carriço who has been a starter in the last games, was missing this game and must return to the starting lineup in this match.
Sevilla in this competition left the Villanovense behind with 0-0 away from home and 1-0 at home. In the first leg of this tie they won in Bilbao by 1-3 and have a foot and a half in the next phase of this competition.
Atletico Bilbao, Atletico Bilbao started very badly at La Liga this year and for some time held the places of relegation. Gradually the team has now given a positive response and begins to climb places in La Liga. They come from two consecutive victories, one in Vigo by 1-2 and this weekend by 2-0 on this same Seville.
With these 6 points breathe now better in La Liga. In this competition they won the Huesca with double 4-0 in both meetings. In the first leg of this game, they lost 1-3 with Sevilla and committed enough to qualify for the next phase.
Our Football Prediction Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao
3rd consecutive match between these teams. Here I think both teams will play the players and we will have a mix of starters with substitute players with one or another player with less minutes to be released in the initial 11.
The tie is not settled, but almost in favor of Seville. For this reason I expect a somewhat uncompleted game of both teams in which the chances of goal must succeed if and the goals as well.
I think this line of over 2.5 goals is perfectly worth the risk of waiting for a game in which players with less minutes want to show service.
Bilbao will score first, they can dream of something and that is why Sevilla is also prepared for any situation. Over 2.5 goals is what I expect from this game.
