Levante vs Ath Bilbao Prediction & Betting tips
In LaLiga, Athletic Bilbao has a tiny chance in seventh place, the last place that is rewarded with a ticket for the Europa League. Then the Basques will have to win all their remaining duels, starting against the always dangerous Levante.
Levante’s mission is already successful, because with 43 points the red-blue from Valencia have been assured of a new season in LaLiga for a while. With a strong final sprint, De Kikkers even have a chance of a rare final classification in the Spanish left row. However, European football is no longer in it, so you may wonder to what extent a high final ranking is a serious objective.
It will therefore be a daunting task for trainer Paco Lopez to keep everyone on their toes. Levante has delivered a top performance playing in safe haven well before the end of the season, so it’s only natural that some players are already on the beach or poolside in mind. Last Thursday evening, the team lost 2-0 with relegation candidate Real Mallorca. Levante is and remains a team that often manages to rise above itself against stronger teams. Earlier this season, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona were both beaten, and last Monday subtopper Real Sociedad was tied for a 1-1 draw. That Levante has to divert to La Nucia 150 kilometers away since the LaLiga restart does not seem to bother the team.
Athletic Bilbao has had a terrible week, because both last Sunday against Real Madrid (0-1) and last Thursday against Seville (1-2), the Basques were left empty-handed in their own San Mames. In both games the red and white did not play badly, but they lacked that little bit of luck and help from the VAR. ‘Sometimes the VAR is called in when there is not much going on, and sometimes the images are not looked back at all during an important action. Incomprehensible, ”growled President Aitor Elizegi.
I can imagine the frustration of Athletic Bilbao, because partly because of these VAR errors De Leeuwen get stuck in tenth place in LaLiga, three points from the coveted seventh place (which entitles to the very last ticket for the preliminaries of the Europa League). The red whites must all win their remaining three league matches anyway, and then they have to hope that the competition will lose points. In any case, the Basques will have club top scorer Raul Garcia again on Sunday afternoon, who was suspended from Sevilla.
