Sevilla Building For Europa League
The visitors Sevilla come into this fixture on the back of a thumping 4-1 loss at home against Granada and the main focus from them has shifted to the Europa League Final against Liverpool in Basel later this month.
It is understandable that the emphasis has shifted from La Liga, they cannot qualify for Europe through their La Liga placing now and their best bet for European football is to win the final and that will allow them automatic entry to the Champions League no less.
Sevilla’s domestic form has suffered and they come into this match in mixed form, losing 3 of their last 6 matches and they will be looking to utilise this final game against Athletic as perfect preparation for the Europa League final and sign off a disappointing campaign with a win.
Their away record this season has been the worst in La Liga and they have failed to win an away match this season, which for a club of Sevilla’s size and standing is a huge failure. A win here would be the perfect tonic given their away displays this season and they have already registered a win here, albeit in the Europa League Quarter Final.
Sevilla have won 14 of their 37 matches this season and will be looking for victory number 15, a win away being the perfect preparation for their huge night in Basel.
They will be looking for their 22nd win in 44 matches against Athletic Bilbao and in doing so will end their season on a high.
Bilbao head into this fixture with a record of three wins, two draws and one loss in their last six matches. Sevilla have a record of two wins, one draw and three defeats in their last six matches.
Both teams are 4/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Athletic are Aritz Aduriz at 5/2 with Inaki Williams at 9/2. For Sevilla Kevin Gameiro is at 15/2 with Fernando Llorente at 17/2.
The last time these two sides met Athletic Bilbao won 2-1 and the odds of the same result are 15/2.
