Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction and Betting Preview 12 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-2
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao PredictionThe fixture schedule has been pretty unkind to Athletic Bilbao in recent weeks pitting them against the likes of Real Madrid and Sevilla. As expected, they were swept aside by these two Spanish juggernauts, albeit, via a narrow win margin.
Match status: 2019/20 La Liga - Matchweek 36
Kick-off:
Venue: Estadi Olimpic Camilo Cano (La Nucia)
Prior to these games, ATH had looked well on-course to bagging a European place finish come the end of the season. However, Bilbao have plummeted down the standings, sitting 10th with only three league games left to go.

Three points separating them from both seventh-placed Real Sociedad and eleventh-placed Osasuna, Bilbao are as close to the dropping into the bottom half of the log, as they are to rocketing into the final Europa League slot.

The battle for European football, especially its second-tier competition, is really intense at the moment with no less than six clubs within continental reckoning. Surely, Gaizka Garitano’s men will have to step up their game over the coming weeks to bolster their chances at Europe.

And with a game against Levante on the cards, Bilbao can now finally have hopes of clinch some much-needed three points. Expect ATH to run the show in this game, claiming maximum points in the process.

Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Team News

One of the surprise packages in the La Liga so far, Levante are enjoying an outstanding season, by their standards. A whopping 11 points clear of the dreaded drop-zone, Granotas have distanced themselves from any relegation-related talks.

Surprisingly, they are even gunning for a top-half finish – a feat worth achieving, given their imperious form this season. Five points off 10th place, Levante’s drive for the remainder of the campaign would be the urge to finish within top-10 on the log.

However, Levante’s form heading into this game is pretty disturbing having remained winless in each of their last three games. The Frogs will have to be wary of their recent woes if they are to stand any chances against this spirited Bilbao side this weekend.

ATH will fancy their chances of taking this opposition to the cleaners here. They must have studied clips from Levante’s recent games and noticed that the Frogs have found goals difficult to come by. Their attackers are often left redundant as they are never fed juicy balls in the box.

This is one area Gaizka Garitano’s men will need to exploit to see this Levante side off, posting all three points on the board in the process. They are in desperate need of points at the moment and you cannot bet against a side as dire as this.

However, it is worth noting that the home side are pretty solid when playing at the Ciutat de Valencia, admitting defeat just once from their preceding seven fixtures. Pushing to instill that fear factor into opposing teams when headed for this ground, they will be seeking a positive result here.

Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao are not on a good run of form but will have no complaints about their previous two games, given they were against top-four sides in Real Madrid and Sevilla. With three wins from 17 away matches, ATH are clearly not their strongest on the road.

Home advantage is likely to play a huge role in what team comes away with the win here. Levante are outstanding on home turf and will be more than happy to be playing in their backyard once again.
