Athletic Bilbao vs Levante Prediction
Bilbao enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has been using it profoundly against Levante in most of their recent h2h meetings at this venue. This gives a slight edge for the home team prior to the upcoming match at home on Sunday.
So, the double chance favoring both teams will probably be the best bet for the punters, as the match is sizing to be anyone’s game at Estadio San Mames.
Levante has been more open to the opponents this season, and the eight goals conceded in four games show the state of their shaky defense. In the meantime, Athletic Club has been more defensive with just 5 goals conceded in the same period.
This will give the host more reliability in creating chances in the encounter. Even though their attacks will be considerably low, they will find more impact than the visitor with their defensive structure. Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be an ideal choice for the punters.
Furthermore, both teams are in a similar form, which will obviously lead to both finding the back of the net in ninety minutes. Their recent h2h meetings also suggest the chance of a BTTS and at 2.00 odds, it is not a deal-breaker in the match.
