Athletic Bilbao travel to Andalucía to face Sevilla at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in the eighth round of La Liga, with kick-off scheduled at 6.30pm local time.
Athletic Bilbao have had a great start to the season and will be looking to beat Sevilla this weekend in order to stay in the Champions League places in the standings.
Ernesto Valverde is not expected to make any changes to the starting XI that beat Almería 4-0 last week. With Jorge Sampaoli predicted to utilise a 4-3-3 formation, the Basque’s side 4-5-1 configuration will provide the team stability as well as control in the middle of the pitch.
Sevilla are currently one point above the relegation zone and will be desperately wanting a win to climb up the table.

AS predict Valverde will field the following starting XI vs Sevilla: Unai Simón – Óscar de Marcos, Yeray Álvarez, Iñigo Martínez, Iñigo Lekue – Nico Williams, Oihan Sancet, Iker Muniain, Dani García, Álex Berenguer – Iñaki Williams.
