Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
Two sides who will turn their attention back to Copa del Rey duties in midweek, Athletic Bilbao will play host to Levante in what could be a lively contest on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Athletic Bilbao would have been disappointed to have had to settle for a point on home soil last weekend, they have largely impressed since opening 2021. In their 21 La Liga matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, four draws and 10 defeats, scoring 28 and conceding 26 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 25 and sat 11th in the table, it should also be noted they sit just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-half. As for their recent run of results, playing out a 1-1 draw against Valencia last time out, Bilbao have lost just one of their last eight matchups across all formats. It should also be highlighted, Thursday’s hosts have seen each of their last nine straight contests finishing with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, also continuing on what has been quite the purple patch, Levante should find the mood in their camp at a real high. In their 21 La Liga matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, nine draws and six defeats, scoring 31 and conceding 31 in return. Managing to collect a points tally of 27, they find themselves sat ninth in the table and holding a two-point buffer from slipping out of the top-half. As for their recent run of results, playing out a 2-2 draw against fellow high-flyers Granada last weekend, Levante are unbeaten in their last nine straight contests across all formats, a run that stems back to January 2nd. With a real reputation for their high-scoring matchups and with 12 of their last 13 appearances finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome in midweek.
