Preview:
Athletic Club and Levante face at San Mamés Barria, in a match for the 16th round of the Primera División. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the home team, since they have a record of 5 wins and 3 losses in the last 8 matches. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 01‑02‑2015, and ended in a (0‑2) win by Athletic Club. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Athletic Club

The home team is currently in the 9th position of the league, with 21 points won, after 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Málaga, by (0‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Atlético Madrid, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 36 goals scored and 11 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got a home win against Linense by (6‑0). In the last 7 home league matches Athletic Club has a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they have won 13 points out of 21 possible.

They haven’t lost any of the last 4 home matches for this competition. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 15 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 15 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 10 goals between minutes (16'‑30').

Athletic Bilbao comes to this match after a 6-0 win over Linense, with goals by De Marcos, Eraso, Etxeita, Kike Sola, Raúl Garcia and Mikel Rico. Coach Ernesto Valverde should organize his team in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation, with Aduriz in front: he has scored 20 goals this season. Absent due to injuries are Iker Muniain and Ibai Gómez, apart from Mikel San José, suspended.

Confirmed Lineup: Iraizoz, Etxeita, A. Laporte, Balenziaga, San José, De Marcos, Raúl García, Susaeta, Beñat, Aduriz, Iñaki Williams.
Coach: Ernesto Valverde.

Analysis of Levante

The away team is currently in the 20th position of the league, with 11 points won, after 2 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Espanyol, by (1‑1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Granada, by (1‑2). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 15 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 2 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 14 goals scored and 22 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got an away loss against Espanyol by (2‑1). In the last 7 away league matches Levante has a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 5 points out of 21 possible. In their away matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 0‑0 (4 out of 7 matches) and after the 90' 3‑0 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 3 of the last 15 matches for the Primera División, they have reached half‑time in front in 2 of those 3 matches and have held on to the lead in 2. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 6 of their 16 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Coach Rubi’s team comes to this match after a 2-1 loss against Espanyol, in a match for Copa del Rey, their 5th consecutive match with no wins. In this demanding match, the away coach should present a few defensive cautions to try to get at least a point. Deyverson is the best scorer of the team, with 4 goals scored this season. Ángel Trujillo and Iván López will not be playing this match, due to injuries.

Confirmed Lineup: Diego Mariño, David Navarro, Pedro López, Z. Feddal, Toño, J. Lerma, Xumetra, Rubén García, Simão Junior, Víctor Camarasa, N. Ghilas.
Coach: Rubí.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that Athletic Bilbao will win. Apart from the best form moment, Bilbao has the home advantage and more arguments to win. Moreover, Levante doesn’t usually do well in away matches, so they should struggle to get a positive result in this match.
