Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio San Mames will host Thursday’s football game between Athletic Club and Sevilla, the two sides who are eyeing a place in European competitions. Athletic Club aim to represent Spain in the Europa League next term, while los Sevillanos are eyeing a spot in the Champions League. Despite producing a fine display against Real Madrid, the Lions eventually suffered an unlucky defeat to los Blancos, with the team dropping to the 8th position in the standings.
Seeing that Athletic Club are eager to climb to the Europa League berth, they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Sevilla. Defender Yeray Alvarez, who picked up a knock in the loss to Real Madrid, is unlikely to feature in the midweek clash. Julen Lopetegui’s men did well to beat Leganes 3-0 in their last away game in La Liga, and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Sevilla defender Jules Kounde returns from suspension.
