Athletic Bilbao vs Levante Match Preview
Athletic Bilbao host Levante for their Matchday 30 clash midway through the week on the back of a thriller comeback completed a Girona (1-2) over the weekend and a two-match winning streak in La Liga. They now hope to build on the success and keep up in an exciting chase for the spots leading to UEFA competitions next term, which promises Gaizka Garitano’s men in a great mood.
Los Leones have beaten Atletico Madrid (2-0) in front of the home fans ahead of the International break with late goals from Inaki Williams and Kenan Kodro, which will have them hoping for another such display at San Mames Barria – where they proved themselves a tough nut to crack time and time again.
Levante have, on the other hand, been denied points in a 2-2 thriller by Eibar as they conceded an equalizer orchestrated by Fabian Orellana and converted by Sergi Enrich. This was their second draw in a row after also sharing the spoils with Real Sociedad (1-1) and they’ll now be desperate for points to escape the danger zone.
Granotas now sit four points clear of 18th placed Celta Vigo and a loss here could see them in immediate danger after 30 games played, as their away tally looks far from promising. Indeed, they’ve earned just one win (1-4 at Celticos) in 12 trips – with five draws and six losses also on the records – as their goalscoring woes of recent prove costly.
We will now back Athletic Bilbao to capitalize on such troubles on the rivals end as well, going for them to connect their third La Liga win in a row for the first time since April 2017 – with a Home win to Nil priced at 13/8 with Paddy Power.
However, we do expect a narrow occasion with few goals and with that in mind, we’ll also back a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with bet365. We have seen such contests in all of the last ten league clashes at this ground, which feels like further evidence.
