This Saturday, October 31, Athletic Club face Sevilla FC in LaLiga Santander at San Mamés (16:00 CET). Julen Lopetegui’s side visit Bilbao for Athletic’s third home match of the season. The Lions lost to Cadiz CF and beat Levante in the first two.

Saturday’s opponents Sevilla have failed to win their last three LaLiga fixtures, drawing against Barcelona and losing to Granada FC and SD Eibar. What’s more, Athletic have a good track record against the Andalusians over the last decade.

The lions have won nine out of their past 10 league matches against Sevilla at San Mamés. Last season’s defeat was the only time Athletic have lost a LaLiga Santander match against Sevilla in Bilbao since the 2010-11 campaign.

That’s not all. Over the past ten years, this particular fixture has produced a lot of memorable moments for Athletic fans. For example, we’ve had former captain Carlos Gurpegi’s farewell match (2015-16), Mikel Balenziaga‘s first goal (2016-17), Mikel Vesga‘s first strike (2017-18) and Iñaki Williams’ brace (2018-19).

The historical head-to-head record is also in Athletic’s favour. Out of all the 76 LaLiga fixtures played between both sides at San Mamés, the lions have won 49, drawn 10 and lost 17.
