Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After holding title holders Real Madrid to a goalless draw at their San Mames Barria, Athletic Bilbao will be aiming to return to winning ways in La Liga when they face Levante at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. The Basque outfit are on a six-game winless run in the Spanish top flight at the moment and, as a result, they dropped to the danger zone in the standings. The Lions, though, showed character in the draw with los Blancos and, no doubt, that gave them a confidence boost. Jose Angel Ziganda’s men are after their only second away win of the season, but seeing that los Levantinos have been struggling to find their best form of late, we predict the visitors will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football game. The hosts experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a heavy 5-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in their last home fixture and that is yet another reason why home win should not be considered.
