Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction: La Liga Match on 26.02.2021
Two sides that are just outside of the European places in La Liga will meet on Friday night, as Athletic Bilbao make the trip to Levante.
La Liga Preview
Levante look to be at a pivotal stage of their season, as they are just six points outside of the Europa League places after 24 games have been played in the season. However, the reason for Levante’s high positioning in the league isn’t down to the number of games that they have won this season, as they have won just seven times. That number is much lower than all the teams above them. However, they have lost on just seven occasions, which is seventh-fewest in La Liga so far this season. One of their shortcomings this season could be the number of goals that they score, as they have scored just 34 in the 24 games that they have played this season. Put into perspective, that is fewer than two of the bottom three in the league this season. However, they will come into this game having won last time out, as they beat Atletico Madrid 2-0.
Bilbao are a couple of places below Levante coming into this game, as they sit in tenth position with 29 points. They have been too easy to beat this season, as they have lost ten of the 23 games that they have played, and it looks as though they have a mountain to climb to get back into European contention. It looks unlikely that they will pick up enough points to get close enough to the top six, as there is already a eight point difference between themselves and Villarreal. Bilbao were held last weekend by Villarreal, as the sides played out a 1-1 draw.
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Head To Head
Bilbao have a great record against Levante, as they have won the last four matches against their opponents on Friday. They picked up the three points earlier in the season by winning their home game against Levante 2-0. They recently came up against each other in the Copa del Rey, with the sides playing out a 1-1 draw.
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
Levante have been in better form over recent weeks, and confidence will be high after beating Atletico last weekend. We could see them getting a first win in four against Bilbao on Friday night.
