Levante vs Athletic Bilbao
Spanish La Liga
Date: Monday, 3 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).
Levante and Athletic Bilbao are set to drop the curtain on the Matchday No 14 on Monday evening at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. The visitors will be hoping to capitalize on a brilliant display from the mid-week 4-0 thumping of Huesca in the first leg of the last 32 round of Copa del Rey.
The Basques thus finally made it two straight games without a loss in all competitions and they will have a nice chance to the thread going on Monday. The Lions are to play the out-of-form opposition in the likes of Levante who are winless in last four matches in all competitions.
The Frogs have been way too easy to break down in the process. They allowed five goals in last two matches which is a poor record given they played the likes of Huesca last weekend. The 2-2 home draw to the rock-bottomed outfit only deepened team’s crisis.
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao: Head-to-head
The head to head record also goes against Levante who trail by eight wins to Bilbao coming into teams’ 21st encounter.
The Lions won six, drew one and lost one of past eight head to head affairs.
Both teams scored in all of last three head to head encounters.
It is interesting to mention that both of last term meetings saw away wins (1-2 and 1-3).
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao: Prediction
Aritz Aduriz returned in action on Wednesday as he delivered a brace in the 4-0 drubbing of Huesca in Copa del Rey. Such showing will clearly instill some confidence into him coming into this clash with the struggling defensive line of Levante’s.
The veteran sis still looking for his maiden La Liga goal and we believe the time has come for him to find it on Monday evening. You can back Aduriz to score anytime at the odds of 2.87. The main bet will be Bilbao to claim the spoils at 2.50.
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao: Bet Tips
Athletic Bilbao to win @ 2.50 (6/4)
Aritz Aduriz to score anytime @ 2.87 (15/8).
