With the La Liga table reaching the end of the season, Spanish football’s top division remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, Levante will look to move further from the drop zone on Monday night.

After 33 La Liga games this season, Bilbao have won nine, drawn 13 and lost 11, scoring 36 and conceding 39. With a points tally of 40, Bilbao now sit 13th in the La Liga table and are now five points adrift of breaking into the top half of the table. As for their recent form, Bilbao have shown minimal signs of ending the season on a high, the Red and Whites now have one win in their last six, losing three and drawing two.
As for the visitors, after being promoted from La Liga B last season, many expected that Levante would be in a fight to secure safety. After 33 games this season, Levante have won seven, drawn 13 and lost 13, scoring 29 and conceding 48, no team has drawn more games in the division this season. With a points tally of 34, Levante now sit 17th in the table and their recent form has seen them gain a six-point buffer over the drop zone and with a 14 goal advantage over Deportivo will see one more win secure their safety. Levante have now only lost one match in their last seven, winning four and drawing two.
