A very interesting match with a lot at stake will take place in Bilbao on Thursday, when Athletic Bilbao will host Sevilla. Athletic Bilbao are coming off a tough loss that held them outside of the top-seven, while Sevilla are doing a solid job and are still holding the Champions League ticket.
Athletic Bilbao (12-10-12) were not very good in their home match against Real Madrid, but they did fight, only to concede the only goal through a penalty kick in the second half. That was their second loss in their last five (won the other three), with just one of those matches featuring goals from both sides. Bilbao are now sitting at the 9th spot of the league table with 48 points, three behind the seventh spot and the Europa League ticket. They have been quite strong at home so far (9-4-4).
Sevilla (16-6-12) are coming off a pretty effective, and somewhat lucky, 0-1 win at home against Eibar. They have now won two in a row and are undefeated in their last 13 matches in all competitions (5-0-8). Sevilla are still sitting at the 4th spot of the La Liga with 60 points, six ahead of Villarreal and three behind Atletico Madrid. They have been really strong on the road so far (8-4-5), going undefeated in their last six (2-0-4).
The two teams split the points in a 1-1 draw in Sevilla earlier in the season, with the two teams exchanging home wins in the league last season, and also exchanging away wins in the Cup too. Bilbao have dominated this match-up as hosts in La Liga matches, winning each of the last nine. Going with the home team to cover the spread here.
