Athletic Bilbao vs Levante
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Thursday, 11 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio San Mamés.
The Lions have really been on a roll this season. They have been delivering great performance after great performance, and have been scoring goals in huge numbers.
They also won the Super Cup, and that too by defeating Real Madrid in the semis , and Barcelona in the final.
They are also at home this Thursday, and will try their absolute best to make the most of this first leg.
Meanwhile, the Frogs have really found their stride in the past several weeks. They are on a long unbeaten run, and impressively most of these were wins.
They have also been on a phenomenal run on the road in the last several months. With this being a knockout match-up, we can expect their momentum to do a lot of damage against the hosts.
However, do also take into account the fact that the Basque club have a great h2h record against this foe over the years.
By the looks of things, expect a fierce encounter this Thursday, and a goal-fest as well.
Athletic Bilbao vs Levante: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Marcelino Toral’s men are on a four-game winning run.

Athletic Bilbao vs Levante Prediction
The Lions had recorded a win via penalties in the Quarter Final, against Real Betis. In the meantime, Paco Lopez’s men registered a 1-0 win at home in extra time, against Villarreal.
Going on, the Basque Nation have failed to score in just one of their previous ten overall matches, and in just three of their preceding twenty games. They had also scored two or more goals in eight of their former thirteen appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a nine-fixture unbeaten run, and they have not failed to score in their former fourteen straight games.
Going on, majority of h2h meetings over the years have also had goals in plenty, and with a spot in the final at stake, expect determined effort from both teams.
Likely, expect goals from both sides of the pitch this Thursday. The BTTS and Over 2.5 Match Goals bets should bring in good returns.
