With La Liga making its return on Friday night, Sevilla will welcome Athletic Bilbao to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in what could be a cagey encounter.

Starting with the hosts, after battling to pick up a hard-fought 2-0 win away at Mallorca prior to the festive break, Head Coach Julen Lopetegui saw his side make a much-needed return to winning ways and the mood in their camp should be at a high entering 2020. Opening the New Year sat in third and looking to secure a Champions League return, the one-time Spain boss has seen Los Nervionenses lose just a single matchup since the 6th of October. However, with a growing reputation for their low-scoring encounters, eight of Sevilla’s last 10 matchups have ended with under 2.5 strikes.

As for the visitors, putting in a pair of lackluster displays in their back-to-back 0-0 stalemates against Eibar and Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao managed to win just one of their four matchups in December. While fans around the San Mamés Barria are dreaming of securing a return to the European stage, Gaizka Garitano’s men have their own growing reputation for some incredibly cagey encounters. With six of the last seven matchups between Sevilla and Bilbao ending with under 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing a similar outcome on Friday.
