Athletic Bilbao vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 3 April 2019
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: San Mames Barria (Bilbao).
Athletic Bilbao are looking to extend their winning thread to three games when they welcome Levante in mid-week’s tie on Wednesday evening at San Mames Barria.
Gaizka Garitano has managed to find the winning formula which introduced the Basques to the battle for positions which lead to European competitions next season.
The Lions are just six points shy of 4th-placed Getafe. They will play Azulones on Sunday at Coliseum Alfonso Perez and a victory here against relegation-threatened Levante is required to further boost up team’s spirits ahead of such an important fixture.
Bilbao are a very tough nut to crack in their own backyard. The Basques shipped only 13 goals in 15 home outings in this term of Primera Division. They saw off Atletico Madrid 2-0 in the previous home fixture before the international break.
Athletic Bilbao vs Levante: Head-to-head
Bilbao were much more successful in the history of head to head matches with the Frogs.
The hosts won 8 and lost 2 of 10 home clashes with Levante.
Nevertheless, we have to say the Frogs won last two H2H ties bagging three goals in each of them.
Athletic Bilbao vs Levante: Prediction
Levante could face troubles in the battle for avoiding the relegation being just four points above the danger area with nine games left to play. They are winless in last five league outings and they shipped five goals in past three ties along the way.
The Frogs generally tend to concede on travels where they allowed 24 goals in 15 matches in this term of Primera Division. Levante lost five, drew one and won one of past seven away fixtures in the league. Given they are up against an in-form Athletic Bilbao side, against whom they have a miserable H2H record at San Mames, it’s really hard to predict their success here.
The Lions won four and drew two of last six home affairs in the league. They conceded only one goal along the way. The home win to nil is the way to go.
