  • Athletic Bilbao are undefeated in 7 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Athletic Bilbao have seen BTTS in their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Athletic Bilbao’s Raúl Garcia has scored 5 goals in his last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • Athletic Bilbao’s Raúl Garcia has scored 2 goals in his last 2 matches against Levante (La Liga).
  • Levante are undefeated in 19 of their last 21 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Athletic Bilbao have a 17-7 advantage against Levante with 5 draws in 29 matches. 

Bilbao have won last four encounters including 2-0 at home in October.

Athletic Bilbao Form


Athletic Bilbao have seen an upturn in form since Marcelino replaced Gaizka Garitano as manager in early January. 

The Basque club are undefeated in 7 of their last 8 matches and won the Spanish Super Cup after defeating Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Marcelino’s side won 5-1 at home against Getafe in La Liga before falling behind for the fourth straight match. They overturned the deficit at Alcoyano in the Copa del Rey, Asier Villalibre and Iñaki Williams scoring to advance with a 2-1 win.

Athletic Bilbao lost 2-1 against Barcelona at Camp Nou. They looked down and out at Real Betis in the Copa del Rey, trailing 1-0 before Raúl Garcia’s 90th minute equaliser and advancing in the penalty shootout.

Athletic Bilbao’s last match was a 1-1 draw at home against Valencia. It was an even match and their 9th straight to see BTTS.

Athletic Bilbao Injuries & Team News


Athletic Bilbao centre-back Peru Nolaskoain remains out injured.

Attacking midfielder Iker Muniain could return here and striker Raúl García is available after serving a suspension in La Liga.

Levante Form


Levante had a poor start to the season but have only lost two matches since November. They are undefeated in 19 of their last 21 matches in all competitions.

Paco López’s side won 4-2 at Real Valladolid in the Copa del Rey before a 2-1 win at Real Madrid in La Liga. They capitalised in Madrid after Los Blancos were reduced to 10 men in the 9th minute.

Levante returned home in the Copa del Rey, beating Villarreal 1-0 in extra time thanks to Roger Martí’s 121stt minute strike.

Levante’s last match was a 2-2 draw against Granada. José Luis Morales put them ahead twice but they conceded in added time to make it BTTS in 12 of their last 13 matches.

Levante Injuries & Team News


Midfielders Nikola Vukcevic and José Campaña are injured.

Defensive midfielder Cheick Doukoure is close to a return after a long injury lay-off.

Winger Jorge de Frutos came off the bench against Granada and could return to the starting side here.
