Los Palangana are also undefeated in their nine matches at home in La Liga having recorded eight wins and one draw as the hosts. 
"We're very happy with the result, it's a tough ground to visit and we haven't won a lot there in recent years," Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui said after the win over Bilbao.
"Only we know what we've gone through this week: getting knocked out of the Champions League, suffering with injuries, the fatigue... They were preparing for this match all week and we put a lot of heart into it. 
"They could have scored and they didn't, but that's happened to us in other matches where we've conceded. We were more organised in the second half, and now we've got three very important points for the players, they deserve it".
