ATHLETIC BILBAO- SEVILLA
These two know each pretty well, after the first leg of this semi-final and the league meeting at the weekend, both of which Sevilla won by a 2-1 scoreline. Hosts are incredibly motivated to win the cup this year and recent league results have slipped a little, probably due to the distraction of this game, however, I feel that we will see them at their best this evening. The match has been sold out for over a week and the atmosphere will be white hot, performances in a ten match unbeaten run over the holiday period were sensational and ignited dreams of a run at a top four place, but those have been put on hold for another season, but are certainly a possibility next year , for now, all their "eggs" are in this particular basket.
