Europa League

2012-04-26 - Athletic Bilbao v Sporting Lisbon

A Sports Betting Preview by ROzsolt

Athletic Bilbao v Sporting Lisbon
Football : Uefa Europa League SF, 2nd leg
Venue: San Mames, Bilbao
Thursday 26th April – Kickoff time: 21:05 GMT+1


Athletic Bilbao



Atheltic will try to make it an all-Spanish final in Bucharest, after the disappointment from the Champions League where both Barcelona and Real Madrid were eliminated.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will have to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit in order to reach the final, but this objective can be accomplished by the talented Spanish side if they play like they did against Manchester and Shalke.

Athletic took the lead in the first leg, but Sporting proved their strength when playing at home and made a comeback thanks to Insua’s header and a long-range finish from Diego Capel.

The La Liga side has a perfect (3-0-0) record against Portuguese opposition, but they have yet to keep a clean sheet against them. Furthermore, Atheltic are unbeaten in eight European home games (W4-D4).

Oscar de Marcos is suspended for this match, but Marcelo Bielsa can count on Javi Martinez this time, after serving a suspension in the first leg. Iker Muniain is expected to return to the starting eleven, after sitting out the weekend game against Santander.


Probable Bilbao line-up :

Iraizoz
Iraola, Javi Martinez, Amorebieta, Aurtenetxe
Iturraspe
Toquero, Herrera
Susaeta, Llorente, Muniain



Sporting



Sporting will be looking to win their first European game in Spain, they currently hold a disappointing 0-3-6 record against La Liga opponents.

The Portuguese side has only won one of their last ten European away games, drawing four and losing five of the remaining nine.

Sporting has a poor away record in the Portuguese league, only six victories in 14 games. However, they managed to score at least one goal in every one of their away games in the knockout stages of this competition, despite facing some top class opponents like Porto and Manchester City.

Ricardo Sa Pinto will be without injured duo Fabian Rinaudo and Alberto Rodriguez, but midfielder Matias Fernendez is fit after a two games absence.


Probable Sporting line-up :

Patricio
Pereira, Xandao, Polga, Insua
Carrico
Schaars, Matias
Carrillo, Van Wolfswinkel, Capel



The Betting Verdict


Athletic netted two goals in five of their six home fixtures since the start of this season’s group stage and I expect them to score at least a couple against Sporting as well.

The Portuguese side has the quality to score here, so if the score will be 2-1 at some point of the match we might see them tightening up and waiting for extra-time just like Real and Bayern did yesterday.

I can’t see past a home win in this one, Athletic can beat just about everyone at San Mames if they play at their full potential and I think they will. It might be a narrow win, so I’m not sure which team will qualify for the final, but if I’d have to pick one that would be the Spanish side.

The Pick :

Athletic Bilbao 2-1 Sporting Lisbon


FIXED ODDS BETTING :

Take Bilbao to win and at least 3 goals scored at 2.50 at Ladbrokes
Confidence: 6/10
