We've won there only three times in the past 20 seasons.

Record with the referee (Del Cerro Grande - 17 matches)
Won: 3 - (17,65%)
Drawn: 4 - (23,53%)
Defeats: 10 - (58,82%)

Player to watch out for
There's a few, like for example, Rakitic, Navas and Negredo.

Conclusion
Last season wasn't just brilliant in the Europa League and in the Copa, the team also showed some glimpses of its class in the league. Last seasons' away match in the Sanchez Pizjuan was such a moment. Goals from Iraola and De Marcos made the difference.
Despite our current situation is somewhat different and historically we're not performing very well in this stadium, let's hope we can get something out of it, in the end they've collected just three points more than us so far this season.

Aupa Athletic! :fero:

My prediction: 1-1

Aduriz and Ibai are serious doubt.

Probable XI:

Gorka Iraizoz

Borja Ekiza - Carlos Gurpegi - Aymeric Laporte

Andoni Iraola - Mikel San José - Óscar de Marcos

Ibai Gómez / Gaizka Toquero - Ander Herrera - Iker Muniain

Aritz Aduriz / Fernando Llorente​

last season's triumph at Pizjuan was a memorable one, we totally rocked that game ... will be happy for a draw this time though, Sevilla have been very strong in home games as of late...

also Depor won their home game against Zaragoza earlier tonight and they are at 26 points now (9 behind us), we have to pick up some points asap (and guess whos visiting San Mames next week...Real M.), otherwise the Riazor match could become a sixpointer...

I'm not watching but Negredo found the net already after four minutes... :depress:

With this collection of talent on the pitch the game is still winable. In order for this to happen I believe we have to start using the flanks, there's way too many players in the central line of the pitch, it's impossible to play Bielsa football with that little space. Iraola who's done good things in the center needs to move to his right wing back position in order to provide the build-up for Ibais crosses to Llorente, either that or Ibai has to switch to left wing. Llorente has to stay up and provide space for his team mates and keep the Sevilla team as far back as possible or needs to be subbed of for Aduriz, I only see Llorente scoring with his head tonight. Herrera needs to stop trying to do magic every move. San José further up is a yes for me, on with Ramalho (brilliant on saturday for BA) push up Gurpegi to DM.

And of course - on with Toquero for the three points!

Wouldn't be surprised if Ander collects yet another red card tonight, the sooner Gaizka comes on for him the better.
