Our match prediction:
Athletic Bilbao will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid when they take on Levante at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Sunday morning. The Lions did suffer the loss to los Rojblancos, but it has to be noted that they produced a fine display against the title-chasing side. Ernesto Valverde’s men are eager to book their place in the Europa League, but seeing that they head into Sunday’s game without top scorer Aritz Aduriz, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Los Levantinos were hammered by Granada in Andalusia (5-1) in Thursday’s relegation six-pointer, but it is well known that Rubi’s men are tough to beat at home. The hosts are desperate to grab something from Sunday’s football match and we predict that they will share the spoils with Athletic Bilbao.
