Athletic Bilbao team news

Athletic Club’s history and standing in the game, both in Spain and across Europe, are matched by few other clubs. It’s possible, however, that that same history and lofty standing has obscured the fact that, for a half-decade, now, Athletic Club de Bilbao has struggled to crack the top half of the La Liga table. In four of the past five seasons, they’ve finished 10th or worse in the table, with the fifth year resulting in an only-marginally-better eighth-place finish. Over that stretch, they’ve also failed to finish in the top half in goals scored.

The start of this season hinted at something different, but has ultimately brought more of the same. In their first nine league matches, despite scoring just nine goals, Athletic Club managed four victories and four draws. In the seven matches since, they managed only five draws — this despite scoring a total of four goals.

It’s concerning that a club of this size, with such talent on hand (namely, Iñaki Williams and Iker Muniain) scores like a relegation-bound side, though it is rather impressive (if not wildly entertaining) the extent to which they’ve managed to offset their anemic attack through excellent goalkeeping and a stout defense that’s allowing less than three-quarters of a goal per game.

It’s tough to imagine this fixture, against the side that’s tied with Athletic for the fewest goals conceded (11), being the one in which the attack gets sorted out. However, a result should be in play against a tired, somewhat shorthanded and probably frustrated Sevilla team.

Athletic Bilbao predicted XI: Unai Simón; Unai Núñez; Yeray Álvarez; Iñaki Williams; Iker Muniain; Dani García; Iñigo Lekue; Unai Vencedor; Oier Zarraga; Raúl García; Mikel Balenziaga

Sevilla team news

If there is a team in Europe that’s delighted to see the Europa League, it is six-time winners Sevilla. That being said, Sevilla would have wanted more than a win, three draws and third place out of a Champions League group that also included Lille, Salzburg and Wolfsburg.

Making matters worse is the fact that their defeat in the group-stage finale also brought with it a trip to Austria. Worse yet, the Andaluz side returns to Spain a bit shorthanded all over the pitch, with starting left-back Marcos Acuña missing in defence, the captain, Jesus Navas, missing in the midfield, and the trio of En-Nesyri, Eric Lamela and Suso missing up front.

The good news is that, despite their European disappointment, Sevilla still have plenty to play for in La Liga. Unfortunately, barring a spectacular reversal of fortune for a a Real Madrid side that’s completely lost touch with the concept of defeat, a league title is probably out of the question. However, despite having lost just once in the league in more than two months, and just twice overall, Sevilla’s second place, 31-point tally is only enough for narrowest of leads over crosstown rivals Real Betis (30), Atletico Madrid (29), Real Sociedad (also 29), and even Rayo Vallecano (27).

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Sevilla shake off the Champions League disappointment, put in an excellent effort in the Europa League, and pick up largely where they left off in the league. In fact, that scenario is exceedingly likely. However, on the heels of midweek travel, with some key faces missing and certain amount of still lingering, it wouldn’t be shocking if they found this particular contest difficult to get up for.

Sevilla predicted XI: Yassine Bounou; Gonzalo Montiel; Lucas Ocampos; Joan Jordán; Ivan Rakitić; Rafa Mir; Diego Carlos; Jules Koundé; Papu Gómez; Fernando; Munir El Haddadi
