On the upcoming Thursday Sevilla will host Athletic from the city of Bilbao at their native Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium and this will be a match of the 25th round of the championship of Spain. Both teams are in the upper part of Primera tournament table. Sevilla haven’t even lost chances on winning the championship, while the Basques are fighting to get into top 6 teams, i.e. the Eurocups.
Sevilla’s winning streak is four matches in a row. At first, the Red-and-Whites took care of Las Palmas in an away game, after that, they were stronger, than Eibar and Leicester in the UCL, and after that they won the Seville derby against Betis. The sporting shape of the future hosts is perfect and the team performs just great at home: there are nine victories with one draw and only one defeat within eleven matches of Primera.
Athletic are also very good at home, but the team have constant problems in away games. Within 2016-17 Primera season, the Basques have managed to win only twice with two draws and seven defeats within 11 games. Athletic are on the eighth position in the tournament table of the Spanish championship, having 38 points in the asset. Within the last five matches, the team from San Sebastian managed to get three wins with two losses.
Despite the tight gaming schedule, Sevilla approach the forthcoming match as distinguished favorites of the game. Firstly, the Red-and-Whites themselves perform great at their native field; secondly, Athletic do not feel themselves very comfortable in away games; thirdly, the tournament situation does not let Sevilla relax.
Prediction for the match: Sevilla to win.
