Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao La Liga Preview, 18th May 3.15pm

Sevilla have to produce a win in their final game of the season as well as hoping that other results involving Valencia and Getafe go their way. That’s what they need to get themselves a top-four finish on the final weekend of the season. They take on Athletic Bilbao who have had a great season and would finish in sixth place at the expense of Sevilla if they bank the win, muscling their way into Europe next season.

Sevilla News and Form

Sevilla played out a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid last weekend. That leaves them with only the one win in their last five league games (D1 L3). So their form has fallen away when they needed it the most to try and push for a top-four finish. There is a narrow window for them to get into the Champions League. The home form of Sevilla this season in La Liga is W11 D3 L4. They were on a good three-match winning streak at home before losing their last home fixture 3-0 against Leganes. Three of the four home losses which they have suffered these season have been against the five teams sitting above them in the table.

Sevilla have been good in front of goal averaging just over two goals per home game. In total 61% of their home fixtures have ended up over 2.5 goals. Of their eleven home wins, six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Sevilla have not seen a home draw in seven played now. Of the home goals which they have produced, 70% of them have been netted in the second period of fixtures. They have opened the scoring in 12 of their 18 home fixtures this season. With just one clean sheet in their last six (home and away) will their defence hold up?

Athletic Bilbao News and Form

Bilbao collected a 3-1 win over Celta Vigo last weekend which continued their patchy form. They are W4 D1 L3 in their last eight fixtures. Their overall away record has seen them pick up just the road wins all season (D6 L8) so that is really where they have fallen down badly. In their five away games played so far against teams in the top six, they have gone D1 L4. They have had their problems putting the ball in the back of the net, averaging just 0.8 goals per away game this season. If they win this, they beat Sevilla on the head to head between the two clubs to sneak sixth place.

Just 39% of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. In total Bilbao have picked up a clean sheet in just 17% of their away games. All four of their away wins this season have been by a one-goal margin and they have lost by just the one goal margin in five of their eight road defeats. Athletic Bilbao have not been involved in an away draw in eight games now and they have scored 60% of their away goals in the first half of games. They have conceded 62% of their away goals after the half time break.

Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao Tips & Odds

Both teams to score at 4/5
Sevilla to win by a one-goal margin at 11/4

Who will win – Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao Predictions

This should be a tense battle and there is not too much between them and there is not likely to be on the day. Bilbao just haven’t quite had the away form to suggest that they are going to go and get the win. The extra scoring threat of Sevilla may just get them the win. Home win.
