Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Thursday’s football game between Athletic Club and Sevilla will bring down the curtain on the La Liga round 31. The Lions are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and it is no wonder the odds for home triumph have been dropping. Experienced midfielder Dani Garcia is back from suspension, while Iker Muniain remains on the sidelines with a muscle problem. Inigo Lekue faces race against the clock to bet fit for the midweek clash.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Villarreal, but beating Athletic in the Basque Country is easier said than done. Since Jose Luis Mendilibar’s troops have already suffered seven defeats on the road this term, we are tempted to put our money on the Lions. Both Teixeira Marcao and Joan Jordan are sidelined with injuries, while there are no suspended players in the away team. Winger Marcos Acuna is back from suspension.
