LaLiga is back! Today we are going to present to you the first match of Round 19 for 2020. The game between Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao is to take place at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan at 20:00 GMT 0.
Julien Lupetegi is doing a great job this season at Sevilla
The Andalusians are currently placed 3rd with 34 points (5 less than the leader Barcelona). Unfortunately, the Real Madrid loanee Reguillion will miss the upcoming match due to a yellow cards ban. The latter is having an impressive season and it won’t be a surprise if he makes the management of Real to sell Marcelo in the summer to free a place for him. Anyway, let’s focus on Sevilla performance once again. The team is the main contender to finish in the top 4. Sevilla plays attractive, eye-catching football in 4-3-3 formation and moreover, Lopetegi has bettered the defence tremendously as well.
The Basque are currently placed 7th with 28 points
What distinguishes the team this season is their defensive play. The team has conceded only 12 goals in 18 matches. That is the second-best defence after Atletico Madrid. We should mention the names of Inigo Martinez, Yeray Alvarez, Unai Nunez, Yuri Berchiche. All these players are exceptional and it is not coincidental that all of them are lured by teams like Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid.
