      Athletic Bilbao vs Levante Predictions

      The Basque club are in good form having lost just 2 of their last 15 matches in all competitions. One of those defeats was last weekend when they spurned several good chances to go down 2-1 away to a rather fortunate Atletico Madrid, who were reliant on a piece of brilliance from Antoine Griezmann to win the game.

      A home match with Levante provides them with the ideal opportunity to get back to winning ways immediately in the league. Levante have won just twice this season and are currently propping up the division. Winless in 5 games they are 3 points shy of safety and must win this game if they are to avoid being bottom going into the Christmas break.

      That is easier said than done though. As well as winning plenty, Athletic have also been scoring plenty of goals. A surprisingly strong Athletic line-up hammered lower league Linense 6-0 at San Mames in midweek in the Copa del Rey. Up against relatively weak opposition again here, they’ll fancy their chances of netting a few more here and are good value at Evens to win by 2 goals or more.

      So far this season Athletic have won 8 of their 14 home games by at least that margin and you have to go back 18 matches for the last time the Basque club were beaten at home in the league by a side other than Real Madrid or Barcelona.

      It’s going to be a long season for Levante you sense and this isn’t one of their better opportunities to pick up vital points in the battle to beat the drop. Athletic are likely to dominate the game and can be backed at 7/1 to win 3-0.
