Athletic Bilbao vs Sevilla: Double header for Bilbao, Sevilla in the week

10:14, 10 Jan 2019

Bilbao face off against Sevilla in the 19th round of Spanish La Liga mid-Sunday afternoon at the San Mames stadium. Both teams will be coming from Copa Del Rey round of 16 action on Thursday, and will have witnessed a good number of fixtures played on Saturday take effect on the standings. Two meetings within the week mean Sevilla will probably be in town from Wednesday until Sunday evening.

The winner of Thursday’s cup meeting at the same ground will be buoyed to complete two against their opponents, but it will be exciting to see how both sides go about business after testing each other on Thursday.

Ahead of this round of matches, Bilbao occupy 17th position on the log. They won 2-1 at Celta Vigo last week thanks to goals from Iker Muniain and the evergreen Inaki Williams. Williams will again be key in this one, while Ariz Aduriz will be available for reinforcement from the bench.
