Athletic Bilbao vs Levante Prediction
Bilbao completely decimated visitors Espanyol in their last league match. With aid of the home advantage, the Basque outfit raced to a two-goal lead within a quarter of an hour from the starting whistle. Later, though the guests did try to make a comeback with three quick-fire substitutions, the home team held on, and forced an own goal too, to complete the 3-0 scoreline.
Levante meanwhile, took every advantage of the struggles of Barca on the road. The visitors had, in fact, opened the account first, via a Leo Messi-penalty. But in the second half, in the space of just seven minutes, the Frogs shelved out three goals to reverse their fortunes and deliver a classic win for their fans.
This Sunday, the home advantage will play a big role in determining the outcome of the fixture. The reason being, the impressive run of Bilbao in front of their home crowd, and the struggles of their counterparts on the road.
To be precise, Athletic has lost just once in their previous 18 appearances at this venue. In the whole of 2019, they have lost just twice in front of their loyal fans, once against Sevilla, and once against Valencia, both tough squads to beat.
Levante, on the other hand, have mere two wins to show for, from their past seven road trips, and even had a three-game losing run in the midst of this stretch.
Likely, the top pick for the day is for Athletic Bilbao to win. However, taking into account Levante’s newfound confidence due to their victory over Barcelona, and their consistent form in scoring goals, the BTTS option looks attractive this Sunday.
