Sevilla stunned as Bilbao steal 3 home points

0 22

Sevilla slipped 2 places from the second spot this week after losing to a resilient Athletic Club who won a nervous 1-0 encounter at the San Mames yesterday night. Sevilla had earlier won a comfortable 2-0 against Malaga last week while the home team lost 3-2 to Valencia away.

A left-footed shot from the centre of the box by Mikel Vargas was enough to seal 3 vital points for newly promoted to the 10th placed home side. Sevilla lost the match even after keeping a superior possession percentage. A total of 9 yellow cards were handed out in the match.

Sevilla next face Spartak Moskva in the Champions League while Athletic Bilbao travel to face Östersund in the UEFA Europa lague stage tie a couple of nights later.
