Competition: La Liga
Market: Sevilla win
Odds: 17/10 @ Bet 365
With the chance to potentially jump up to second in the La Liga table, Sevilla will travel to relegation candidates Athletic Bilbao on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, after enduring a very tricky start to their La Liga campaign, many have Athletic Bilbao tipped as a leading contender in the relegation race this season. In their 18 league games this season, they have won just three, drawing 10 and losing five, scoring 18 and conceding 25 in return. Entering the New Year, the hosts now hold the third worst attacking record in La Liga. With a points tally of 19, Bilbao also hold just a two-point buffer over slipping into the drop zone. As for their recent form, along with suffering a 3-1 loss to Sevilla in the Copa del Rey in midweek, Bilbao have also managed to win just one of their last eight league matches at home.
As for the visitors, along with booking their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, Sevilla are enjoying a very impressive run both in Europe and domestically. In their 18 league matches this season, they have won nine, drawn six and lost just three times, scoring 31 and conceding 18 in return. The visitors also now hold the second best-attacking record in La Liga. With a points tally of 33, another win on Sunday could see them leapfrog Atletico Madrid to second spot. As for their recent run of form, Sevilla are now unbeaten in their last eight matches across all competitions.
