Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Under 2.5 Goals

  • A total of 75% of Athletic’s away games in La Liga 2023/24 have produced under 2.5 goals.
  • The visitors are also hampered by the key absentee of forward Inaki Williams, who has been in great form with eight goals this season.

Our Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao betting tips also considers the defensive improvement in Sevilla’s first two games under Sanchez Flores, with only one goal conceded so far under his management.

Win probability

  • HOME: 21/10 (3.10) – 32.3%
  • DRAW: 12/5 (3.40) – 29.4%
  • AWAY: 29/20 (2.45) – 40.8%

You can back Both Teams to Score at 5/6 (1.83), an implied probability of 54.5%. Meanwhile, Sevilla’s Youssef En Nesyri is the slight favourite to open the scoring at 5/1 (6.00), a probability of 16.7%.

Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao prediction – Other tips

Sevilla 1-1 Athletic Bilbao

  • Our Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao prediction suggests we may get a repeat of Athletic’s last two away league games, which ended 1-1.
  • 1-1 has also been the most common home scoreline for Sevilla this term (three times in La Liga).

Draw

  • Four of the nine matches at the Sanchez Pizjuan in La Liga this term have been drawn.

Player to watch – Nico Williams

There’ll be no Williams brothers double act here with Inaki away with his country. Nico chose to represent Spain, though, and will have extra pressure on his shoulders in this game as he looks to spearhead the Athletic attack.

Nico Williams is having a good season with three goals and five assists so far in La Liga 2023/24.
