This was Bilbao's third defeat in their last four matches in La Liga, while the other game ended in a win.
They ended in a four-match winless run at home in the league when they defeated Levante in their last game at the San Mames.
Gaizka Garitano, the Bilbao manager, says they are hurt ahead of the game against Sevilla after losing to Osasuna. 
“The team worked well but the result is the most important thing and we’re not happy with it,” Garitano said.
“We tried to take the initiative but they got the win. We knew it was going to be a close game, but we had the better chances. 
“Today’s defeat hurts because we conceded a goal from the only chance they had against us.”

They are also winless in their last two away matches in the league having recorded one defeat and one draw on the road.
The last meeting between Bilbao and Sevilla in a league match was on 09 July 2020.
Los Palanganas secured a 2-1 win over the Lions in an encounter which was played at the San Mames.
