Sevilla will host Athletic at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on May 22, after scoring a draw against Atletico Madrid and securing a spot in the Champions League, meaning they have little to play for in the last match of the season.
For Athletic, their situation is completely different as they are still trying to reach the top 7 and secure a spot in the Europa Conference League. Athletic is 1 point behind Villareal, and if we take into consideration the goal differential, a draw wouldn’t be enough for Athletic to overtake Villareal.
These two teams arrive into this match in very different forms as Athletic has been able to maintain a solid performance throughout the past couple of weeks. They’ve won 3 out of their last 5 games and 2 of those victories were against two strong teams, Atletico Madrid and Osasuna.
But Athletic recently lost against Granada, the 16th-place La Liga team, which might end up haunting them in their nightmares if they don’t manage to secure a top-7 finish, because that defeat would end up being the main reason for their failure.
On the other hand, Lopetegui’s men have been struggling to secure any victory as they have scored 4 draws in a row and some of those games were against much-lower ranked teams. Sevilla already secured a spot in the champions league and this match has no meaning for them at all.
The only reason they might try to win this game against Athletic is to simply prevent finishing the season with a lossless streak. Sevilla was the team that won the last encounter between these two teams, even though it was a very close game. But surprisingly, Athletic has been able to win multiple times against Sevilla in the past, so it wouldn’t be that crazy to see them overpower the Sevilla lineup once again.
