Athletic Club and Sevilla go head-to-head at the Estadio San Mamés this midweek, as the traveling side look to stretch an unbeaten run in the La Liga H2Hs to three matches (W1, D1).
A 1-0 home loss to Real Madrid at the weekend now means that none of Athletic’s last five La Liga games has ended in a draw (W3, L2), with four of those results (win/loss) seeing the winner on the day keep a clean sheet. Indeed, the ‘clean-sheet’ theme will be of the essence here, given that 11 of the match hosts’ 13 La Liga home results this season have witnessed the winning side shut out the loser (W9, L4). ‘Home-drama masters,’ Gaizka Garitano’s men have either won or lost via the identical 1-0 scoreline on over a half (six) of those occasions. Yet, Los Leones must be confident about winning this clash, as they’ve won all nine of their previous top-flight H2Hs held at this venue.
As for the visitors, they take this trip on a run of five La Liga away matches without a loss (W2, D3), four of which saw them score over 1.5 goals. Quick out of the blocks, the Andalusian heavyweights have netted the majority (61.54%) of the La Liga away goals scored in the first half of play (16/26), finding the opening goal in a league-high 14 of 17 top-flight trips this season (82.35%). Additionally, just three sides have shipped fewer La Liga away goals than Sevilla (19) this season, with Los Rojiblancos also boasting the division’s second-best seven clean sheets from 17 league trips this campaign (41.18%).
