Sevilla lose in Bilbao
Sevilla’s final game before the Europa League final on Wednesday night in Basel, Switzerland, didn’t go to plan.
While the Andalusians are the two-times reigning champs in the competition, Sevilla recorded a bad record on Saturday in their final match of the La Liga campaign away at Athletic Bilbao.
Bilbao won the contest 3-1, confirming that Sevilla went through the entire Spanish league campaign without an away win all year.
Sevilla suffer from homesickness
In their 19 away matches in the league season, Sevilla failed to register a single win, drawing 9 times, while they recorded 10 defeats.
That should give Liverpool encouragement that the Spaniards don’t travel well ahead of the match on the continent.
While Sevilla, who finished the Spanish season in 7th, were lousy away from home domestically in 2015-16, in the Europa League they won 2-1 at Bilbao in the quarterfinals, while they drew at Basel and against Shakhtar Donetsk.
