Levante vs Athletic Bilbao
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 12 July 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Camilo Cano (La Nucia).
Levante will play for nothing as they are not prone to both promotion and relegation. The mid-table side will still fancy a win against Bilbao, who is struggling to make it into the promotion zone in the league table.
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Match preview
Levante is winless for the past three fixtures in their schedule, but only one of those has ended in a defeat in the league. The loss came in their last match against Mallorca, leading to a 2-0 loss on the road.
Granotas is at their strongest suit at home as they have only one loss in their last 7 attempts here. Their splendid form at home is likely to yield at least a draw in the match.
Athletic Bilbao is a powerful side in the mix known for their pressing game. But the team has taken a dip in form and is on a two-game losing streak in their schedule.
Their previous encounter was at home and they lost to Sevilla with a 1-2 scoreline.
Bilbao’s last tour to Valencia ended in their favor and both their recent losses were against top part teams in the table. However, 3 wins from 17 away fixtures is not the strongest form on the road.
In the meantime, the host has only 4 losses in their 17 home matches so far. With their advantage at home, they can exploit the visitor’s dip in form to their favor for the points.
