Our match prediction:
Sevilla will be looking to bounce back from an embarrassing 4-1 loss to Granada when they take on Athletic Bilbao at San Mames Barria on Sunday afternoon. Unai Emery rested a number of first-team regulars in Sunday’s game against los Granadinos and there is every chance he will mix the squad against Athletic Bilbao as he wants his key men to be fit for the Europa League final against Liverpool. The Lions, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Las Palmas at the weekend and considering that they have already secured their place in the Europa League, we would not be surprised if Ernesto Valverde decides to rest his first-team regulars against Sevilla. Anyhow, the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they will share the spoils in Sunday’s football match in the Basque Country.
