Football forecast tonight for Sevilla FC vs Athletic Club Bilbao
Sevilla host Athletic Bilbao in the 19th round of the Spanish La Liga. The match is on Friday, January 3, starting at 10:00 pm at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
In the second match for the 2020 Spanish Championship, two teams from the top 7 of the standings will face off. Seville is performing very well so far and is in 3rd position with an asset of 34 points. The Andalusians have 10 wins, 4 draws and only 4 losses during the campaign, 3 points away from second-placed Real Madrid. The alumni of Julen Lopetegui won their visit to Majorca 2-0 in the last championship match for 2019, ending their 3-match winless streak. Previously, the team lost at home with 1:2 Villarreal and lost their visit to APOEL (0:1) in the Europa League, as well as draw 1:1 with Osasuna. Sevilla have played a lot in front of their fans during this campaign and have 4 wins in their past 6 matches in the Spanish Championship, so he will strive to rejoice his fans with a new victory in his first 2020 match.
The Athletic Bilbao team is an outsider in this match and bookmakers do not think the Basques will be able to win the match. They are ranked 7th in the 28-point asset standings, falling 4 points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid. The visitors are unbeaten in their past 3 games, recording 2 draws and 1 loss.
In their last match, the team went undefeated by Santiago Bernabeu after 0-0 against Real Madrid. Athletic has allowed 3 losses in 9 away games at La Liga this season, but there is only one win. The team failed to sign in 5 of their away matches and it will be difficult for them to find the net of Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. In my opinion, Seville is much more likely to congratulate the three points on Friday night, so I’ll bet on the final outcome 1. Thats our football forecast tonight. Enjoy!
