Athletic Bilbao faces Levante
Athletic Bilbao faces Levante at the San Mames Barria in a match from the 6th round of La Liga. Let’s preview it in our football prediction betting tips today. Are you ready?
Athletic Bilbao had a terrible start of the 2020/21 season. The Basques have won just three points from their first four games, so they are now 19th in the standings with 3 points. This club is not used to the feeling to be in the relegation zone, so surely they need to improve as soon as possible.
What Athletic did just before the international break? Gaizka Garitano’s boys suffered their third defeat for the season. The Basques paid a visit to Deportivo Alaves, but the match at the Estadio de Mendizorroza ended with a 1-0 win for the hosts.
What are Garitano’s problems before this next game? There are some players with injuries. De Marcos, Peru Nolaskoain, Yeray and Ibai Gomez are all sidelined with different kind of fitness worries.
Levante are also in the relegation zone after four matches played. They have the same amount of points as their next opponent Athletic – 3. And they have the same record – one win and three losses.
In their last match Levante had a tough game against the champion Real Madrid and unsurprisingly they suffered a 0-2 defeat at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Paco Lopez and his boys tried their best against Los Blancos, but the visitors were just from another quality.
These are our football prediction betting tips today for the La Liga showdown between Athletic Bilbao and Levante. Both teams are currently in the relegation zone of the league, so they need the points. It’s usually very hard to play in Bilbao, but without fans at the stands it’s certianly not the same at the San Mames Barria. This gives Levante better chances.
