Athletic Bilbao vs Levante Preview
Levante are currently rooted to the bottom of the La Liga standings and have endured a particularly dismal season so far. The Valencia-based outfit thrashed Elche by a convincing 3-0 margin last week and will need to work hard to achieve a similar scoreline in this fixture.
Athetic Bilbao, on the other hand, are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and have been inconsistent to a fault this season. The Basque giants slumped to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of a resurgent Barcelona side in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.
