Athletic and Levante are among the outsiders of the Spanish Example. Who will be able to take three points on October 18, 2020 and improve their standings? – the answer is in the forecast from our analysts.
In the four played rounds of the new season of La Liga, Athletic took only three points. The Lions beat Eibar 2: 1 away in the second round of the Spanish Championship.
The rest of the team’s attempts from Bilbao to get hold of credits were unsuccessful. Gaisk Garitano’s charges included guest matches against Granada (0: 2) and Alaves (0: 1), as well as a home defeat against Cadiz (0: 1). As part of the hosts, defenders Yuri Bershish and Oscar De Marcos, as well as forward Kenan Codro will miss the match.
Levante showed similar results at the start of the new season. The Frogs scored their only victory in the away confrontation with Osasuna (3: 1), showing effective play in attack.
Paco Lopez’s team suffered in the derby from Valencia (2: 4) and away from Sevilla (0: 1), and in the last round, Levante could not resist at home against Real Madrid (0: 2). Midfielder Sheikh Dukure is in the guests’ infirmary.

Athletic and Levante found themselves in the relegation zone at the start of the season, so both teams will try to take maximum points in the confrontation with a direct competitor. The statistics of head-to-head meetings, especially in Bilbao, speaks in favor of the Basques, which regularly upset their opponents at home.
Taking into account Levante’s unreliable defensive play (8 conceded goals in 4 matches), we believe that the guests will not take points in this meeting.
Our prediction is that Athletic will win with odds of 1.97 according to the Winline bookmaker’s office .
