Another interesting soccer betting duel on EURO between Spanish teams and once again, both are very close on La Liga with Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla on 6th and 7th place respectively.

Both teams arrive to this game after poor results in La Liga, which could have jeopardized their chances of grabbing a European spot in 2016/2017. Regarding the home team, Athletic Bilbao is highly dependent on their veteran striker, Aduriz. With 17 goals in La Liga and 8 in Europa League, the Spanish striker continues to have a very important role on this time and that’s one of the main reasons for this team’s performance swings.

Athletic Bilbao Preview
Bilbao won’t count with their 2nd most important player on the team, Raul Garcia, who is crucial on the midfield but won’t be able to play due to suspension.

The Basque team knows that Sevilla is an incredible strong team at Sánchez Pijzuán and no matter the result, they always believe they can win with a previous record on Europa League that shows it. Therefore, Bilbao should invest all on this match with a strong team and looking to take a very positive record to the 2nd leg.

 

Sevilla Sneak Peeck
Sevilla and their coach, Unai Emery, are experts on this competition and are usually able to perform well even when things on domestic league aren’t going well, like currently where they lost the last two matches, the last one a very compromising one against Real Sociedad at home.

Since Bacca’s transfer to Serie A, Emery prefers to play with a mobile forward as Gameiro who is much more similar to Bacca instead of Llorente who is not adjusted to Sevilla’s game style. Gameiro’s numbers this season show that Emery’s choice was correct, with 14 goals scored in La Liga and 4 more in the European competitions.

Sevilla’s main goal to this first leg is to score at least one goal, which is always a positive result and gives them the chance to fight for this tie at home where their feverous supporters always help them, no matter the circumstances.

 

Betting Overview
Bilbao suffered at least one goal in 8 of their last 10 matches at home and due to Sevilla’s great record on Europa League soccer odds and motivation the home team should concede again.

The winners market provides us some value to play Sevilla double chance (AH +0.5) at -120 since this team is more than capable to score goals on the road which will get them closer from achieving at least a draw on this contest.

Looking to the goals market, the Over 2.5 is a line that we see with some interest but the value offered by the sportsbooks doesn’t compensate the risk a 1-1 final result and we prefer to avoid it.

With that said, we found our top soccer picks on other goals market that is clearly a better approach to this match: Both Teams to Score at 1.81 Unibet is a valuable line for us and will make us pull the trigger this Thursday night!

As spoken previously, the strikers of both teams are crucial in terms of % of goals scored and we like the prices offered for them to score at any time. It’s very unlikely that neither of them finds the back of the net during the 90 minutes and with both players priced above even, we recommend you to place a bet on both, guarantying profit if any of them scores. Aduriz at +125 and Kevin Gameiro at +220 both at Unibet to score at any time.
