Competition: La Liga
Market: Sevilla win
Odds: 17/10 @ Bet 365
Only a few days removed from knocking Athletic Bilbao out of the Copa del Rey, La Liga high flyers Sevilla will travel to the San Mamés Barria on Sunday.
Starting with Athletic Bilbao, while Gaizka Garitano’s side may have entered 2019 in impressive fashion, the White and Reds slumped to a 3-1 loss against Sevilla in midweek and Los Leones still find themselves firmly at the heart of a relegation battle. With only their goal difference keeping them outside of the drop zone, Sunday’s hosts will also be worried by their form at the San Mamés Barria. Coming off the back of that hammering in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, Bilbao have now managed to recorded just one win in their last eight matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, after booking their spot in the next round of the Copa del Rey last time out, the mood in Sevilla’s camp appears to be at a season high. Yet to be beaten domestically since a 4-2 defeat to Barcelona back in November, one man to watch for the visitors will be leading goalscorer Wissam Ben Yedder. Once again finding the against Bilbao in midweek, the Spaniard now has 13 goals for the season, including five in his last five. With the chance to jump up to second in the La Liga table, we’re backing the visitors to come away with the win on Sunday afternoon.
