It's a mid-table clash in store on Sunday, as tenth-placed Athletic Bilbao travel to 12th-placed Levante with both sides searching for a victorious end to their weekend. Athletic know anything less than a win will essentially end their European qualification hopes, with three matches left to play. So, can Levante spoil a winnable encounter?

Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions ahead of this fixture.

Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips

After successive wins against Mallorca and Valencia, Athletic Bilbao must have been ruing their lack of luck. Slender defeats against league leaders Real Madrid and fourth-placed Sevilla mean they're now outsiders in this summer's Euro qualification race.

Despite Getafe's 3-1 midweek defeat by fifth-placed Villarreal, they remain sixth and occupy the final Europa League berth. Real Sociedad continue dwindling in seventh, though wins for Valencia and Granada have propelled them above Gaizka Garitano's men at precisely the wrong time.

Remarkably, five points separate sixth from tenth with three matches still to play – so movement isn't impossible. Fail to pick up maximum points against mid-table Levante though, and Bilbao's 2020-21 Europa League aspirations will be quickly eroded.

Levante are enduring a three-match winless run, after relegation-threatened Mallorca earned a potentially big result with a 2-0 win on Thursday. Real Madrid loanee Takefusa Kubo and Cucho Hernandez split Paco Lopez's backline with worrying ease earlier this week. What are the chances Inaki Williams and co replicate that same success here?

They are high, especially when you look at statistics. Despite his undeniable ability, Inai has now gone eight games without a goal. Their top goalscorer Raul Garcia (13) has only scored six goals from open play this term.

He was suspended on Thursday, while Unai Lopez – their best performer against Real – was an unused substitute. Levante must be mindful.

Levante vs Athletic Bilbao Correct Score Predictions

As previously mentioned, neither side is in particularly good form – making it difficult to predict an outright winner. However, Bilbao's H2H record against Levante makes for good reading and I'm leaning towards a narrow away win here.
